The BFS 6 Absolutes of the Total Program
One of the most important principles of our strength program, especially our Readiness Program Package for Middle/Junior High school athletes, is to never sacrifice technique to lift heavier weights. To help achieve perfect technique BFS has developed six training principles called “Absolutes” that are amazingly effective in teaching perfect technique, not only in the weight room but also in any sport. Learn the Six BFS Absolutes and you can elevate your strength and sport coaching abilities dramatically.
One reason the Six Absolutes are so amazingly effective is that all coaches can use the same terminology when teaching weight training and sports skills. After all, how can athletes be expected to follow instructions exactly when the instructions they receive seem different? Such confusion also goes against the concept of developing a unified program. Therefore, when teaching the squat, instead of one coach saying, "Make your chest big!" and another coach at batting practice saying, "Spread the chest!" both coaches will simply say, "Spread the chest!"
