I think that's a key point. Competitive sport is, by definition, quantity based. People who look for shortcuts and instant results giving use as "license" to give quality secondary consideration (more likely fourthly at best), developing skill (quantity) on base of crappy foundation. We all know how this works as a long term approach... A high school basketball coach actually told me I'm wrong when I said that you can't be "too good" at the foundations, and when people work on foundations they loose sight of what is really important.There is a lot of investment into the competitive element of sports but very little into physical culture.
Same logic leads toe 15 year old kids doing SSP programs and random specialty exercises, while they have zero ability to squat or hinge properly (will probably score asymmetrical 12 on FMS).
Society is investing in the top of the pyramid instead at the bottom and creating a wider, stronger, better foundation. I think it the quantity based life neo-capitalism ingrains. The only question everybody asks is "how much?", no ones asks simply "how?"
