Plyometrics are a dynamic training modality. They can help one to produce more
explosive power in their activities of choice. They are a good choice for exercises to add to ones training regimen.
Some studies have shown that plyometrics can augment ones endurance training.
Plymetrics should be performed with economy of motion in mind (read as good form). In this way, the core will be incorporated so as to ensure that maximal transfer of power is directed to the joints and muscles involved with the movement.
I don’t see any mention of plyo’s being a bone strengthener…so here it is:
Plyo’s also build bone strength and bone density….
Plyo’s are a wonderful addition for all the reasons mentioned above – and the training adaptation will add to one’s reactive strength and power, explosive power, speed, and agility, but also strengthen the fascia, bones, joints, ligaments, tissues – and of course, our muscles…
Just remember it needs to be tailored to the client’s capabilities otherwise injury is right around the corner!
