The ability to 'coach' yourself on the fly is vitally important. Being intuitive has nothing to do with HLHLHL and it is also nothing to do with being chaotic.

Let me pose this to you. Did Ed Coan print off his famous 'Deadift Routine', take it to the gym with him every day and follow it to a tee?

Or was it rather a representation which people pieced together, of what he did on average?

Please give yourself time to think about that a little, rather than answer straight away. If you can figure that out, you will be making good strides into understanding how to train yourself.
Fazc, thank you for your words-I was in Berlin on holiday so I couldnīt reply.

i donīt get the sentence in bold. You mean that its not a good idea to move away from templates but then you state that the greats just have a rough idea (so no "programm" in that sense) what to do and change things around by feel.

Could you clarify this and give a example of this self coaching day on a H/L frame? I think you need to develop a "clear" inner voice here which is the main challenge and can be blurred by many factors.
