What is the most beneficial way to increase chest power?

Increasing power involves using super set techniques whereby one strength exercise, such as a bench press, is immediately followed by an explosive exercise, such as Rotation Chest Pass. The Strength exercise should be performed one to five times (intensity level of 85 - 100%) and then followed by eight to 10 Power exercises at an intensity level of 30 - 45%. Your Power abilities can be enhanced by progressing from a Stabilization program (approximately four weeks) to a Strength program (approximately four weeks) and then finally moving to a Power program. In the Stabilization level, you will be performing exercises that challenge your endurance and stabilization mechanisms. Exercises often involve single leg or single arm challenges and are performed for 12 - 20 repetitions (two to three sets at an intensity level of 50 - 70%). Once you have progressed to Strength, exercises are typically performed in more stable environments and your repetition range drops to one to 10 repetitions (at intensity levels of 75 - 100%).
