Olympic lifts. Olyimpic lifters have been said to out run Olyimpic sprinters for a little bit.
This is a true statement. Olympic lifters have higher vertical leaps than NBA players as well. Shane Hammons vertical is 40 in. and he weighs 375. Not bad.
The hard part is, it's all technique and takes years of practice to get it right, so I'd go with plyos instead and some power cleans.
Here is a quote I found, looking for the reference to the study.
"The jumping and running abilities of Olympic lifters were documented in the Mexico City Olympic Games where they out ran and out jumped the jumpers and sprinters in the vertical jump and 25m sprint! This is an amazing feat considering these men do not train specifically for jumping or running."
