Plyometric training has in the past, mainly been used for athletes to increase their athletic performance. In the past couple of years, plyometric training has begun to become more mainstream within the fitness world.
Plyometric training is basically training your muscles through powerful and explosive movements. It incorporates a lot of jumping movements as well as speed and agility exercises. Not only does this make your muscles more powerful it also helps with your overall speed and your reaction time. This is a huge reason why plyometric training is so popular among athletes.
We love what plyometric training can do for your body so we’re beginning to incorporate it into our monthly workout plans for you! In fact, our September challenge has many plyometric moves included within each circuit.
The most important things to remember are to keep yourself hydrated and stretch well before and after. Plyometric training not only increases muscle strength but it gives you an intense cardio workout at the same time.
