The other point being that some of the stuff Louie says is batshit insane. Like the fact that he completely believes that his methods would apply perfectly to Olympic weightlifters, and that given the opportunity he could produce an international champion with those methods. I also think he's made claims that Olympic weightlifting is a trick, not real strength etc etc.
yes but still those guys are super strong. much stronger than anyone would Need to be in Tennis. I'm sure that most top Tennis Players only bench like 200 or so, maybe the bigger ones like 300. you simply don't Need those Levels of strength for Tennis.
