Plyometrics are great option for improving both muscular strength and power. As we age, it's vital we perform activities specific to both in order to maintain our independence.
Power Versus Strength
While these two terms are often used interchangeably, power is different than strength. Strength is defined as being able to move a certain weight or load, and power looks at how quickly you can move it. Adding the component of speed makes power more challenging. Think of it this way: strength + speed = power.
