Exactly what naysayers are you referring to?  "Good" meaning good for what?

So that Alex dude in the pictures can squat 800lbs and is an endurance athlete. BUT, is he any good? Just asking. Cause I know some Biggest Looser contestants that "did" a marathon (before losing their weight), but having participated in something doesn't make you any good at it.

Did you know that you can lose weight on a convenience store snack diet?

Yup, you can. Science says so.

Did you know that because you can do something doesn't mean it's the best way to do something?

True story: I can travel east or west and get to work. Is there a right way? Not really. Is there a better way? Um, yeah, the one that doesn't require that I circumnavigate the globe.

So if you don't go overboard on strength trianing, it shouldn'y be too big a detriment to your cardio training?  Good to know.  Of course, this has zero to do with anything most "naysayers" have to say on the subject.

Being one of the people that advocates strength training into the proper training programs, this is the last source I would ever use.

There was a guy that was built just like that at my last trail race. Watching him attempt to run was painful just as I'm sure it would be painful watching me attempt to lift heavy sh*t.
