Power Basics

pat_reactive_med_ball_throwStrength is the foundation of power.

In order to develop power, without getting injured, its important that you have developed adequate levels of stability and strength.

Once you are strong and stable, we can start to increase the speed of movement.

Power is basically how fast we can create force.

Jumping, throwing, sprinting, and reacting in sports are all examples of how we develop power.

An athletes ability to jump high is one of the most simple ways to test power.

In order to develop more power in our athletes, coaches commonly use a variety of speed, agility, quickness, plyometrics, med balls, Olympic lifts and other drills.

These drills help our athletes take their raw strength and translate it into power.

Using appropriate dosages and timing with these drills can really help improve our athletic performance.
