I forgot to ask, do you mean strengthen in a integrity type way; ie to prevent injury?

If so then as above.

If you mean from a stiffness/hysteresis and performance perspective, then plyometrics will probably supersede any other method... But they can be destructive to the joint itself so exercise caution.

Interestingly I have read some studies many years ago showing isometrics were superior for tendon "stiffness" I believe was the terminology used.

That's interesting mate, don't suppose you have any reading references on this? I'm a big believer in performance increases from tendon stiffness... the best lifters who don't train this trait tend to have naturally stiff tendons; so any stones I'm yet to turn over are welcome haha
