In order to improve leg Power, you will want to incorporate super set techniques where you pair a Strength exercise (Squats is an ideal example) with a Power exercise (Squat Jumps is an ideal Power exercise). Ideally you would perform one to six repetitions of the first exercise at an intensity level of 85 - 100% and then perform eight to 10 repetitions of the power exercise at an intensity level of 30 - 45%. Power training utilizes super set techniques that involve a strength exercise immediately followed by an explosive exercise of similar movement pattern. This combination makes it relatively easy for individuals to incorporate Power training into their workout with limited equipment. Additional Strength exercises include Seated Leg Press, Stationary Lunges, and Leg Extensions. Additional Power exercises include Butt Kick Jumps, Power Step-ups, and Ice Skaters. You can do explosive squat jumps for 10 repetitions after doing 1-5 repetitions of leg press at 85-100% of your one rep max.
