Zdrastvuyte Dr. Verkhoshansky and to the rest of my overseas friends,
I am a non-competitive strength athlete and the Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach (for American Football) at the University of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania (US). Some of you may be familiar with my work with Elite Fitness Systems and my website Power Development Inc.
I think that I can provide some clarity as to the usefullness of the Charniga texts.
It is important for me to state that I owe nearly the entirety of my capacity to plan the training in regard to what I have learned through reading the translated works of Dr. Verkhoshanky, Dr. Bondarchuk, Dr. Issurin, and other esteemed coaches, sport scientists, from Serbia, Poland, Germany, Bulgaria, etc.
According to Dr. Verkhoshansky the conditions under which the Charniga translations were published were removed from the direct consultation and approval of Dr. Verkhoshansky and, therefore, include a certain degree of inaccuracies.
While these inaccuracies exists I think that the greater problem is the moral one which Dr. Verkhoshanksy has eluded to.
From an educational standpoint, I do think that the Charniga translations present a clear enough depiction of what is important to know. I am comfortable stating this because I am as well read as can be with respect to the translations that are approved by Dr. Verkhohshansky and my practical coaching experience (through which I am able to apply the learned information) is extensive enough to have seen the results.
More important then having read this or that is that we possess the capacity to practically apply the information contained in the literature.
So while the Charniga translations may not present 100% clarity as to the methodologies as they truly existed in every detail- they are certainly not void of usefulness.
I personally found that as I perfected my understanding of the literature presented in the Charniga translations (which I acquired prior to my acquisition of Dr. Verkhoshansky's approved work) that my transition and exposure to Dr. Verkhoshansky's approved work was very congruent.
The problem that I am now faced with is that I have been fortunate to have made the correspondence with Dr. Verkhoshansky and this presents me with difficulty in 'promoting' the Charniga texts.
At any rate, the most important factor in my opinion is that Dr. Verkhoshansky has made his presence available through this website. In this capacity, the possibility for misunderstanding the literature has been eliminated.
