In this post we will talk about Strength Component # 3, Power. Power is the ability to produce force quickly. In situations requiring power, resistance must be overcome, and high speed of movement is also of great concern. Power seems to be a linking component between absolute strength and speed qualities, and most training systems treat it as such.
In track and field, where time available for force production is often extremely short, the need for high production power capabilities becomes obvious. Power training activities combine resistance and high speeds of movement.
