We pretty much know that lifting heavy ass weights is going to raise all CNS related intermuscular and intramuscular coordination as well as preferentially hypertrophy/strength type II fibers..... so why not do heavy DLs?

Anyway, what distances are you referring to for speed endurance (for a 100m sprinter and/or a 400m sprinter let say).
I'll think over more later on what you posted, but in reference to speed endurance, I just mean distances beyond which top speeds are reached.
