it is funny to me because my interpretation is...

they start with good, honest work. nice training weights for them to work their muscles / work the movement. and they move perfectly.

then they overload them so their form becomes sloppy. there can be a bit of value to that - when you are straining your muscles properly in the effort to move properly. but if you do too much of it your muscles forget how to move properly and they'll start to move sloppy when you lighten the load, again.

then they... well... they start doing a bunch of sponsored stuff with... mixed utility. they start off trying to sell smith machines (with a fixed bar path) and one of them actually managed to move properly despite the contraption. then they move with greater or lesser precision (of the form we saw to start with) on the... nautilis? I think that was what it was... an atlas machine... I can't remember my history of weightlifting...

there was a push to sell machines, you see. to limit the knowledge and to try and push the products.

elieko doesn't even make barbells anymore? hard to tell... started with premium product... now i think the americans got hold of it and it looks all but sunk. olympic weightlifting equipment is.... back to china, i think... Elieko is just your $5,000 set for your crossfit box because that's what the people will pay for. the people who pay for paleo water (what's that? coconut water from fiji? people are telling the fijians that coconuts are bad for them with all the saturated fat - in these parts. like butter. you know, melts in the mouth but solidifies in your arteries).
