Olympic lifting - yes, but here is a new form of strength training for speed
The Powersprint® equipment can be loaded with light weights for speed strength or heavier weights to train the fastest Type FTx-musclefibers as in explosive olympic lifting.
Christian Hemberg, former professional swedish soccerplayer:
"I got the basics for speed with Powersprint"
Speed, sprint technique.pdf
Speed, long jump technique.pdf
About technology and training for sprinter speed and long jump. Powersprint, a new type of specific strength training for speed is presented. Muscle strength - scientifically basic.
The book is richly illustrated with training plans and lots of exercises. The author, a former swedish coach and physical education teacher,is also describing technology and training according to Carl Lewis's coach Tom Tellez and the swedish sprinter Henrik Olausson.
In comparison with Clean and Snatch, the most used special exercises with weights for the sprintmuscles, you could come much closer to the actual sprintstride*) and use it with the same feeling as in your earlier olympic lifting, but now with a new experience of a real sprintaction with better mobility and power in the important hipextension.
Two important points:
*) Tom Hays Track and Field Coach at University of Arizona:"Perfect for American Footballplayers"
Leif Dahlberg, the Coach ofthe Swedish recordholder in longjump:" I have been thinking of something
like Powersprint myself, and I like this strengthmachine
**) Standard barbell weights.
The Swedish sprintcoach Håkan Andersson have used this mashine now in many years, aspecially with heavy weights. He used it when he trained the Swedish 100m rekordholder Peter Karlsson and Torbjörn Eriksson before they each won the bronzemedal at Indoor European Championship 1996 on 60m resp. 200m. Recent years Håkan Andersson has been training Stefan Tärnhuvud, the best swedish 100m sprinter in the years 2008-2012

The design places greater demands on your back muscle strength than with modern Powersprint for more technology specific exercises. The load is distributed at the body at several points, which is easier for the less trained. However, after many years of extensive training, as in Stefan T. case, is certainly the general basic strength sufficient to avoid injury. NOTE! The same movement as Stefan shows works in principle, with a modern power sprint machine, as an excellent training of muscular strength for the hamstring - Gluteus. (See the manual in Speed, sprint technique.pdf, above)
In this filmclip Kenneth Riggberger, elite trainer / test managers in FYSEXPERTEN and Malmö Sports Academy, shows how to perform side-steps. Side-steps with powersprint means further specific strength training for a variety of ball sports for speedy movements in the horizontal direction. Ice hockey / bandy player's skates or freestyle skiing and other sports activities likely to benefit from this exercise. Kenneth is one of the true enthusiasts of power sprint and have started to introduce it for many sports other than athletics. His sporting background: 5 fold Swedish champion in the decathlon, qualified coaches in national team, helped among others, as a coach the decathlete Henry Dagård to a European Championship silver in 1994 - In addition, an extensive testing work, which highlights the strength from new viewpoints - all these experiences together, should give confidence in Powersprint

Yet another variation on horizontal movement in the Powersprint and still another interesting exercise by Kenneth Riggberger, certainly useful for many sports.
