Top 10 Strength and Power Sports

Which sports are rated highest for strength and power? This list is based on the ratings of the factors of success considered most important, as voted by visitors to this website. Weight lifting was clearly voted as the sport requiring the greatest strength. That makes sense. The strength sports ranking list by the expert panel from ESPN may provide a more reliable list.

The ratings are still being recorded (this list from Nov 2016), so the list order may change over time. Although over 50 of the world's major sports have been analyzed, there may be others that were not included and could also be ranked highly too.

You can add your own rating for sports. The top speedand power sports by the expert panel from ESPN may provide a more reliable list.

If you are new to exercise, consider getting a medical assessment before doing too much. Fill out a PARQ to see if you are ready. The best thing you could do is perform a warm-up before each fitness session, which should include some stretching. When training, following correct exercise technique can help reduce injuries and maximise fitness gains.
