Vitamin B-6 is one of the main ingredients in ZMA. I know a couple of other guys who thought ZMA and B-6 would improve performance in speed-power athletes…Conte and Charlie Francis. I’m wondering if we should blow off everything Charlie had to say about speed-power development because he too believed in the merits of ZMA and B-6?
Strawman much? Charlie never claimed that ZMA will take off any amount of time from your 100m. Those are micronutrients which are deficient in many people, so ZMA might help.
On the other hand, Bondarchuk makes this claim:
YJ: What supplements did you find valuable?
AB: We found that using the whole complex of vitamin B could help add 3-4 meters to a throw.
He also says steroids only give 5-6 meters, so basically he is claiming a B complex is roughly on par with steroids. Yeah.
