Continuing to Train Power as We Age

As we age we lose power at a faster rate then we do strength. Because of that, it’s extremely important to keep power/explosive movements in your workouts, but to do so intelligently.

Don’t overthink or over-complicate things. Throw some med balls (Overhead, rotational, Shot puts, etc) for upper body power. Swing some kettlebells and perform some box jumps for lower body power. All produce a ton of power and are very joint friendly, a great combo for training power as we age.
