If you have ever watched them throw in person you wouldn't say that. Even on video you can hear them grunting and giving their all on max distance throws.

100 throws in 100 days sounds cool, but I'd be worried about the quality of the reps. 10,000 throws is a lot to analyze in your mind.

BT Hard Harp, VIP Shield.
