Great topic and great replies…You all took the words right out of my mouth…I can say that at this point of the year my strength in the weight room has gone down and so has my acceleration. I was previously running about 4.4 +/- .05 when I was squatting 500. Now my best 40 time may be around 4.55 +/- .05 and my max squat is unknown since I haven’t did heavy squats in about 3 years. I can also say my vertical leap has decreased also. In highschool I could grab rim with two hands from vert and now I can barely grab it with one hand from vert and my height is 5″11. That goes to show that explosion is explosion and you need to be able to apply more force than you are curently able to increase explosion/acceleration.
