Isometric & Power Training

SPSC CrossFit – The Sweat Studio

A) Isometric Training- static strength training, involving holding a muscular contraction with maximum force without shortening or lengthening the target muscles.
B) Power Training- Fast strength, or the ability to produce force quickly. Power is calculated by dividing work/time.The faster you can move a resistance, the more power you produce.
