After last week’s convo with Cirque du Soleil acrobat Jon Vellner, I’m feeling more accurate (and will keep chasing that 100-foot handstand walk) but #NotThatFit overall. There are still eight components of fitness left to master, so I’m counting on today’s guest to bring the power, literally.  

Not to be confused with strength, which is the ability to exert maximum force (like Stefán Sölvi Pétursson’s 400-pound axle press), power is force divided by time. That could mean something like broad jumping around a track or cycling Olympic lifts, which is a specialty of Quiana Welch, a weightlifter and former American record-holder in the 76 kilogram (167 pound) division for  snatch.
