|Force is applied to the ground. More force = more speed.|
Here is a great article on training for speed events in women's track. I really wouldn't do anything different for men either. I agree that increasing the amount of force produced can increase speed when form is technically sound. I like the workouts that he prescribes, short, intense, and to the point. A quick lift, a strength lift, some prescriptive body building work, and finish with some core work. Exactly what I prescribe for most of my athletes. In fact, this program looks very much like what I write for our athletes. As the cliche goes, "It's not rocket science" Get them in and out, do what needs to be done, don't waste time with anything that doesn't need to be done.
Great job coach.
