Explain PACE please?
training your biceps with weights is not necessary for sprinting or boxing. i have competed in both sports and when i have trained i only focused on the essential elements of that particular sport.
training for a sport can be tricky. you must know how to train,eat and rest. if you do anything extra it could interfere with the results that you are looking for.
if you are a hardcore athlete you must live like a hermit always watching what you eat how you train and your sleep patterns. but if you are a recreational athlete do what ever you want.

Only working your biceps probably won't get you anywhere, but all the good sprinters I know are ripped all over, including biceps.
Some people don't like doing lifts that isolate one muscle group, such as biceps curls, and prefer to concentrate on lifts that his multiple muscles at once.
I have heard some people say that they thinking doing curls will throw off running form, but i don't believe that. As long as you stay balanced and don't overdevelope part of a bicep it shouldn't affect your form either.
Lifting is one of the best ways to get faster, so just keep at it. Remember to work your whole body, because everything plays a part, and you will be sure to improve.
