    Right, Olympic lifting, a test of power for throwers, or a tool to develop power?

    Now I don't know from coaching and throwing, i enjoyed the OL so much I competed in meets for about 6 years, but I don't know whether OL and the variants put a centimeter on to my throwing or that of any athlete that i coached? or if they did could a better job have been done by dead lifts, weighted jumps, one leg, one hand exercises, throwing heavy objects.

    Hey everyone,

    Phil Stevens is doing a fundraiser for strength athletes (myself as one of them) called Lift for Hope. He had the great idea to put together an e-book filled with training and nutrition ideas and tips. Check out the link to get great info from some great minds and also to help out some athletes. Oh and he is also selling some great T-shirts too.

    I believe the last paragraph of your psot carries the most important message. If there is a better way that will affect more young throwers and keep them away from dangerous drugs, then it is the responsibility of those who posses the knowledge to share it. We don't need rhetoric. We need facts. I think your spot is great in that you are saying and I am right there with you, if someone that has something will share it I will make the changes I ned to make. I don't care who gets credit for saying it or inventing it, I want it and that will supercede my ego. If we are truly trying to personally improve as well as improve the sport for all concerned then we must be willing to make changes when necessary. Show me something that is not jsut someone's word and stamp of approval and has merrit to back it up and I'm on board.

    Adam,
    I totally agree witht he electronic information theory. The net has done the so much tomake every facet of our lives better.
    I still have trouble with the strength comparisons. I see your point of getting better and making these percentage gains. The percentage gains that have been made are somewaht suspect in that the 450 lb bp guy fromtwenty years ago was ditry. Now today's thrower increase 20% more than that of the dirty guy and is clean? I'll need more proof of lifting regimines before that one flies for me. I flat out can't believe it as the quality of the the human being produced 20 yrs ago was very comparable to the one we know today. I'm going to require some specif information as to how this is do, and others should ask for the same specifics, in order to remove my doubts. This is where you'd make a lot more money than in the tech dept.
    I would agree with a sense of timing. I understand completely. Except this is a result of a sequence of events that the body makes, not somthing that falls upons us because we are elite atheltes. We still need technical specifics that make today's thrower better tahn the drugged up throwers of twenty years ago.

    but I wonder if the early steroids, like Dianabol, were more effective because they were such a close match to natural testosterone? As drug testing became a factor and efforts were made to avoid positive tests the new versions could not show up as positive but also were less effective.... could this be the case? Just as lab produced THC pills don't work as well for chemo or AIDS patients as natural cannabis does maybe the varied permutations of steroids have lessened effectiveness to avoid detection.
    Could be why HGH became popular.... works great, hard to detect but requires new hats and lots of dental work.
