One thing we know: adults lose power at a quicker rate then they do strength, making training power extremely important as we age.
The issue is that most adults don’t move as well as they once did, with wear and tear and cranky joints.
Because of this, joint friendly power work is a must. We can’t have an adult perform the same loaded power movements as we would an 16-25 year old athlete. That means no hang cleans, snatches or other Olympic lifts.
Instead, we program a heavy dose a Kettlebell Swing variations, Landmine Split Jerks, and a ton of med ball work, allowing us to continue to train power but in a joint friendly way.
