Training for power

To train for power, the workout should consist of one to six repetitions and extended rest times of two to three minutes or longer between sets and exercises. While the reps are fewer and the rest is longer than when training for increased muscle size, the primary difference in programs for developing power is the training load. An individual training for general fitness power development might take a mixed-methods approach, training for both force development and power, because both components play a role in activities of daily life.
