It may have just been easier to say, regarding your post,

"Yea! What he said".
I was long winded

This sort of nonsense really gets under my skin:

A) Because I know the marketing tactic. It's link bait shock marketing. And Boyle is a master at it. I don't like mixing e-book/huckster marketing BS with my training. It's agenda is cash. Mine is strength and muscle.

B) It lacks common sense.

C) Functional strength often involves crazy, silly exercises and dangerous training practices such as unstable training. It does not get any more irresponsible then doing squats or overhead presses on a stability ball.

D) Boyle - quite honestly - looks incredibly frail. Rippetoe looks like he chews tin cans. Simmons looks like he spits iron. Even Bob from the Biggest looks like he is strong with bodyweight exercises. I have serious doubts that Boyle has any degree of personal experience with any form of heavy squatting. Without the knowledge that comes from personal experience, his perspective is weakened.
