You can see how people who play sports like football, basketball, cricket, track and field athletics, golf, and baseball rely on power when playing the game.

*The main goal of power training is to get your body to generate power. Power training simply has you applying that force to move a mass with speed, and, in most cases, maximum speed. That mass can be anything from a dumbbell or barbell to your bodyweight. Jumps, sprints, and plyometrics are all under the power umbrella.

*Power training has you moving with great speed. That’ll do a host of things, from protecting you as you age to helping you burn through fat stores at a great rate.

*One quick formula you may know from high school: Force = Mass x Acceleration. Some power moves are strength training exercises done at a faster speed. Others rely on the use of a weighted vest, which is worn while performing certain exercises that are typically aimed at improving functions such as bending, reaching, lifting, and rising from a seated position.

So take your time with power training. It’s critical for all ages, but you need to start slowly and work on your own mechanics. Also, keep your reps and sets low when power training, and take plenty of rest between sets. This will help you maintain flawless form.
