Power & Strength

Dr. Jimenez Power & Strength Training and Conditioning Team.Β 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 workouts (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 this test.

Dr. Alex Jimenez offers insight into various stretches, exercises and explains the possible risks of injury through his numerous article archives.
