Reducing power is the ability of a molecule/substance to reduce another. In a redox couple, this would be the reducing agent. When this reducing agent reduces another element, it itself becomes oxidized. Typically, those with a greater reducing power are more likely to donate their electrons to reduce another element, and thus will have the most negative reduction potential (least likely to be reduced themselves). Hope this helps!
