Power & Strength

Exercise utilizing Power & strength training can benefit both athletes and the general population. The goal of power & strength training is to achieve higher levels of personal strength to achieve their fitness and health goals.  Power is defined as the ability to generate as much force as fast as possible. It’s needed for specific athletic movements such as clean & jerk, swinging a bat, golf club, tennis racket, and running through a tackle. Power requires strength and speed to develop force.

Strength is the amount of force muscle/s can exert against an external load. One rep maximum test is performed where individuals assess 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 into various stretches and exercises and explains the possible risks of injury on strength training through his numerous article archives.
