Benefits of Power Training: 

> Increases rate of force production (power outputs)

> Enhances neuromuscular efficiency (balance, stabilization, and muscular coordination

> Enhances prime mover strength

Power Training, which is considered phase 5 of resistance training, focuses on both high force and velocity to increase power. It is designed to increase the rate of force production (or speed) of muscle contraction. This form of training uses the adaptations of stabilization and strength acquired in the previous phases of training and applies them with more realistic speeds and forces that the body will encounter in everyday life as well as in sports.


Every time athletes train, changes take place in their body that make them more effective and efficient. According to General Adaptation Syndrome, stress causes a temporary reduction in performance and function but is followed by adaptation, which ultimately improves function and performance. Fitness can also improve when an athlete progresses their training load and continually advances the work he or she performs with new challenges.

Based on a number of factors including individual goals, current physical state, athletic needs, and sports position (if applicable), Power and Performance Training typically requires a commitment of 2-5 days per week for at least 4-6 weeks.
