Let Me Break It Down More
I stated, "Athletes with bad to little to technique who posses incredibly strength and power are superior to weaker individual with great technique."
So, let's provide some definitions to "Incredibly strength" defining it as someone who Squat over 600 lbs, Benches over 400 lbs and Deadlifts over 600 lbs.
Let's provide definition for Olympic Lifter (Power Athletes) as being someone who Snatches over 300 lbs and Clean and Jerks over 400 lbs.
These athletes are going to produce an enormous amount of force with poor technique.
