Olympic lifting has made its mark in the fitness industry over the last few years. Commercial gyms now boast platforms and bumper weights. So why should you use power based exercises in your training? Ask any personal trainer and they will be working some power based movement into your programme.
Explosive lifting and jumping is extremely functional for your body. It works the whole body increasing your power output which increases muscle efficiency. It also increases muscle density as it causes myofibrillar hypertrophy. This is the thickening of muscle fibres which only strength and power exercises cause.
Include power cleans to your workout and watch your progress jump through the roof!
