    Upper body strength has little relationship with linear acceleration. For lower leg workout it doesn’t really matter what exercises you pick. The main thing is to minimise any muscle imbalances.

    Plyometric exercises with quick ground contacts are specific to the strength needs of sprinters.

    So then why have you devoted so much time to developing your upper body strength?

    Yeah but it can provide a good CNS training stimilunt without taxing the legs which is the reason i think charlie used it. Plyometric exercises do not develop max force to the same extent as weight exercises and the ground contacts times are longer than sprinting
