Force at setup ¶

Is there an advantage to applying force, by actively pressing your feet into the ground, at setup through your feet? I can take setup and rely on just my body weight to apply force or I can press down and increase the force beyond my body weight. I understand that being able to create as much force as one can by shaft vertical downswing can lead to increased club head speed - not necessarily peak force. Other than increasing friction and potential for more torque is there an advantage or is it sufficient to increase this force through the backswing etc? Or other thoughts on this topic?
