Sometimes it helps to teach your athletes a little basic physics.

Power = Work over Time
Why, yes it does.Not only does an athlete have to work very hard for a long time to develop the power necessary to be a great gymnast, but also in gymnastics physics, power does equal work over time.So, the next time you try a line like “power equals work over time” and your athlete just laughs, flip some gymnastics physics on him and prove that you’re right.
power = work / time
p = w / t
For now just remember the difference between speed and velocity.We’ll start getting to this formula next time. We’ll also start working on multiple universes and twisting moments.
