It’s a strawman because I’m not arguing against the use of B-vitamins nor their usefulness and Charlie saying that taking ZMA can be helpful is a completely separate topic from claiming steroid like effects in B vitamins. I’m questioning the intelligence and integrity of a guy (Bondarchuk) claiming that taking a B-complex adds 3-4 meters to your throws. I’m sorry that you are too stupid to be able to comprehend what you read and I have to spell everything out to you. I know the state of Texas isn’t known for its educational system, but please do try to keep up.
Bringing up Charlie in the same breadth as this clown is beyond disrespectful to him. Charlie didn’t make asinine claims about the benefits of taking B-vitamins improving the hammer throw >5%. This guy is a charlatan.
And since you feel there are some take aways from this guy, why don’t you read that article and see how you feel after that? Some gems include general prep exercises being worthless, Americans don’t work on technique (which is baffling given the overall dominance of American men in the shotput and multi-events–nobody cares about hammer), the East is better than the West (didn’t realize every coach in North America and Europe is the same) and the West is too secretive, nobody in the West talks or communicates, etc. I mean damn, my post is longer than the article and I can find all of these absurd statements and claims.
