I actually have no idea. Look, if you had a definition for it, you'd just list it. For example, maximal strength.

"the greatest force that is possible in a single maximum contraction"

Not that much in fact. Chinese weightlifters will routinely squat over twice their body weight, and they are explosive as all ****. Moreover, some of those exercises can only be correctly categorized as explosive, such as pulls, snatches, and cleans. Sure, if you're grinding out single deadlifts all day, then that would qualify for what Verkhoshansky meant when he said that "excessive maximal strength training" can reduce explosive strength, but I don't think that anything I said could lead you to think that I was advocating an exclusively 1RM program.

As is evidenced by his burly 160lb physique.

You just have thin skin.
