I would like peoples opinions on the Ian King/CF seminar video. What differences have you noticed in the IK/CF seminar that was different then the products offered here?
Here is some info from a different thread,
The Ian King/ Charlie Francis seminar material is different than our Vancouver “series” products in many ways. Mainly, Derek hosts the a seminar once a year in Vancouver and Charlie gets to the core of the methods at these seminars (of which you attended).
GPP is exactly what it says it is, its a video on GPP. Nothing to do with Vancouver, Derek is heard but not seen in it (olympic lifting).
When you say the “same”, this is incorrect because all the products we create are different, BUT are based on the core principles of the CF training methods.
Ian King’s product was produced by Ian, not us and was done under Ian’s direction.
Here is an overview so we are all on the same page.
These conferances are held once a year in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia; and are hosted exclusively by Derek Hansen. Here it is just Charlie. We call them Vancouver 2002,2003 etc. They go by year.
This is a “problem/solution” series of products. Our first installment was with the Jane Project. Here we took a younger athlete, with training issues and addressed those issues using a systematic approach AGAIN built on Charlie’s expertise (aka the training models). Expect a new project featuring a male athlete sometime early in June.
These are compilation products of the better discussions the group has online by year. Here the format is Q&A and presented in a easy to read/make use of manner.
We only have 2 books in this category. 1 is an ebook (called 2002 Forum Review), and the other is in print only (the conclusion of 2002, the Final Edition). 2002 was covered in these two manuals. Expect us to catch up soon.
Charlie can be engaged easily by either sending me a message by PM or email stating your intentions/goals. We also offer telephone consulting for those who require instant access to support.
Hope this helps, if you have quesstions we have a pre-sales/support thread in customer service.
I found the Ian King/ CF seminar video of value. It reinforeces alot of what we already know and Ian King offers his views as well. He is a good speaker. As well the videos cover a decent amount about coaching team sports and hit on plyometics quite a few times. One downside as stated on Ian Kings website is the videos arent great quality. It itsnt filmed professionally. If you turn up your TV real loud you can catch most of it and after a while you get used to it.

Consider these films the best in underground.
Agreed with Quik. Worth.
Charlie’s dissertation and manually drawn graph of the “worthwhile break” concept is in there -and in there only- too.
Thanks guys that’s all I needed to hear!
Every time I hear Charlie do a presentation, I learn something. Even when I watch the same presentation over and over and over again, I always pick up something, understand a concept a bit better or start thinking about training in a different way.
We’re done with this. Buy the films. This is going nowhere fast.
