Designing A Power Training Program

When planning a fitness program, you need to have your goals clearly spelled out. You may want to increase your muscle mass and strength, your agility, speed, endurance or power. In the fitness world, power is a combination of strength and speed. For instance, lifting heavy weights at the gym quickly or faster than others is a demonstration of power. When designing or looking for a power training program, you need to pay attention to exercises that improve speed and strength.

High intensity interval training is a great way to build your strength and speed, which translates to power. For instance, you can start by cycling leisurely on the road on your bike for 60 seconds then cycle as hard as you can (as if your life depended on it) for 40 seconds before going back to leisure cycling as you relax. You can do the same with jogging and sprinting to build your power outside the gym.
