Power Exercises

Here is a list of power training exercises you can use to increase your power. These exercises are categorized by the prime mover they work, but remember that most power exercises are (intentionally) multi-joint movements.

They are also categorized by the type of power exercise they fit into. As I talked about on the Power Training page, you should transition from the Max Strength Phase using the heavier Olympic lifting exercises before you jump to the more explosive plyometrics and ballistic exersises.

This list has been categorized by type to show that progression.

There is also a section with exercises for upper-body power. These are pretty much all plyometric or ballistic in nature, so they haven't been categorized.
