This is the video of Zach I was referring to in my post on the Wiggins training video thread.

6'6" 185lbs, 46" SLRVJ since college, not one heavy strength exercise was done other than those hip thrusts...

Make his thighs heavier, see how well he does on the ladder drill.

This reminds me of the moment when I see very skinny (especially with bone-like legs) guys in the gym doing easy leg raises. I'm like "well, OK, let's see how easy you'd do them if you were to have my leg weight".

wow.  you gotta stop doing that man.  Let them do their skinny leg leg raises.  Doesn't interfere with your training so who cares.

I mean....isn't it roughly the same anyways? We always talk about BW ratios with squat and deadlift and what not....why not leg raises? ;)

Yes but the adaptability of the hip flexors is much lower than the overall weight gain of the legs. The same applies to the calves - one important reason why when you get heavier you'll be a worse one leg jumper is because the calves rarely get adapted to being stronger as you gain all that weight, and therefore being heavier = more overload to pretty much the same strength level for the calves = more collapse of the jumping leg.

The calves can't keep up getting stronger as the same rate as you gain weight, just as much as the hip flexors can't keep up getting stronger at the same rate as the legs are getting heavier.

Man this video has given me prowler flu, I really need to get mine out more often and use it. (referring to the big push/pull sled he uses in the video for short bursts).

His training is geared perfect for training fast twitch muscle fibers, and his coordination and speed is very impressive during those drills.

Everything we do is geared for fast twitch muscle fibers. They really are the only fibers that respond to hypertrophy, really. Otherwise marathon runners on caloric surplus would "develop slow twitch fibers" and get big, bulgy slow twitch physiques.
