- Use same TM for many of the lifts for 3 or more cycles, using very small plates to add on (1/4, etc) that allows them to progress very slowly. This is especially important for the press which can be almost impossible to make progress on after even a few weeks. Why this is so is EXACTLY why you need to have a long term training program, not a short term solution. Principles work, people.
- Women: Have them do "girl" stuff after the main work (jumps/main lift/supplemental) to appease them. It's like giving an athlete time to do curls - it's called being a good coach. I could care less what they do after they do what is necessary - it's not going to make/break anything in the program and if they want to thrust their hips/scent in the air, so be it.
- Teach them good basic eating habits that are steeped in trends, elimination diets or being rallied by the ignorant. We aim for balance in diet and in training. Habits are discipline. Discipline is without emotion. And people who over eat can't manage what?
- We have them strive to become better than they are today, not what they once were. People who live in the past are weak people and have no place here.
- They are free to ask questions only after they do their research. This allows them to learn and not be spoon fed.
- We expect them to perform. The standard is not someone else's body.
- We change their bodies by changing their minds and what they can physically expect from themselves.

But here are a couple things I rarely see mentioned when training Those Sans Ween:
