Absolutely – it’s all about balance.
Which is as you point out in rugby quite ‘interesting’ in the sense the athlete is never perfect, there is always a strength/speed balance we are looking to improve so that power overall is progressing, (without detriment to Speed Endurance of course).
In sprinting it’s a little different because it’s closer to a ‘pure’ expression.
A good thread.
