Complexities of prescribing loads to target peak power

During the phases of training where power development is a priority, coaches should select a load of approximately 70% to 80% 1RM for weightlifting movements. A should consider how fatigued athlete is as well as the quality andspeed of the warm-up sets before settling on a load to use in From a wider perspective, for power development should across a broader spectrum that combines high-velocity and low-load exercises plyometrics, jump squats) high-force and exercises (e.g., power cleans, squats) to facilitate a more complete adaptation across the force-velocity curve.2,4,33 To further optimize power development and sport performance, this mixed-method approach to training for power development should be done within the context of a periodized training plan.
