Power & Strength

Power & strength training and conditioning programs, both athletes and the general population alike can reach higher levels of personal power and strength, making them capable of achieving their personal fitness goals. Power is defined as the ability to generate as much force as fast as possible. It’s needed for athletic movements such as in workouts (clean & jerk), swinging a bat, golf club, tennis racket and running through a tackle. Power requires strength and speed in order to develop force. Strength is the amount of force muscle/s, can exert against an external load. One rep maximum test is performed where an individual assesses the greatest weight they can lift while maintaining proper form. The movement’s speed is not important in a strength test. Dr. Alex Jimenez offers insight on a variety of stretches and exercises along with explaining the possible risks of injury pertaining to strength training through his numerous power and strength article archive.
