yea, imo if you get in great shape through plyo's, calisthenics and then do some weight training you'll see much greater results than having been lifting weights from the beggining
A good regime, get in shape via calisthenics, lift some weights, then go back to calisthenics and plyo's and you'll have a great mix of power and speed
