What is plyometric training?
Basically, any exercise that relies on a dynamic transition from the absorption of force to its use is a plyometric exercise. So if you're jumping in place, you're doing a plyometric exercise. Speaking a bit more technically and using jumps in place as an example, landing from a jump, your thighs will be stapled all the time (technically we are talking here about eccentric muscle contraction) and then they will move all power down by instant muscle contraction (concentric muscle contraction). This pattern of muscle contractions is known as a stretch-contraction cycle. Muscles are able to generate huge amounts of force in this way during plyometric activity. This type of training is therefore a great way to develop speed, strength and agility.
