I deleted my original comments as they were major dick (moreso than below if you can believe it).
I will say that I too loved the book but worry about some of the translations (L. Deloucha vs C. Lewis) and figures (10.80-11.00 guy: 6.60 for a fly 70 and 4.80 for a fly 60). I would be less worried if I didn't see Yessis's DVD translation performance (did they give you that?).
Louis Deloucha was a little-known Italian sprint sensation from the late 80s. For a time, he was among the best sprinters in the world. He mysteriously disappeared in 1989 under a cloud of doping rumors. The IAAF subsequently removed all prior results from Louis from all meet results of that time period. Looking back, it's as if he never existed.
And how come Pfaff says shot throws are highest correlation in sprints but Bondarchuk says they are the lowest?
I chalk up some of this stuff from program design. For example, the placement within the training session, technical execution, and emphasis placed on multi-throws could yield various correlations. Personally, the only thing I've found multi-throws to correlate very well with are: reach height, acceleration abilities, standing long jump, and shot put capability.
and then there's this (YJ=Yosef Johnson AB=Anatoliy Bondarchuk)
YJ: As you know, steroid use is credited for much of the Soviet success. How do you respond to this assertion?
AB: Ironically, steroid use started in the United States in the 1950s with many bodybuilders. It then seeped into the athletic world. It didn???t pervade Europe and Asia until the early 1970s. Those in the west had better knowledge of steroids and were using them at least as much as the rest of the world. It???s also important to note that [b]steroids help add 5???6 meters to a throw but no more[/b]. As time went on, we found different supplements to be more valuable than steroids.
YJ: What supplements did you find valuable?
AB: We found that using the whole complex of [b]vitamin B could help add 3???4 meters to a throw[/b].
Mike, may I recommend this for your family (https://www.flintstonesvitamins.com/complete/index.html) That kettlebell will be moved no problem after the Flintstones doping program is initiated
Thanks for the info…I'm looking to see if we can get those as either sublingual dropper form or as an injectable to enhance uptake efficiency.
