Listen to Xen,
explosiveness is more of a neurological phenomena, depending on how you look at it, primarily because it is derived from motor unit recruitment. So drilling to get the proper firing sequence in the motor units is an aboslute necessity. From there you also want to work on maximal strength, as well as explosive movements from a dead stop to overcome the length stretching response and work on maximal instant motor unit recruitment.
I am more of a striker so when I want to work on the explosiveness of a combination what I do is break it down step by step and perfom it exactly as I want to, but slowly teaching my body exactly how I want it to move, then move to explosiveness of each component, then put it all together.[/quote]
