Description

Plyometrics are an incredible tool for developing speed, strength and power. They can be exciting, fun, dynamic, high metabolic drills with massive caloric expenditure. But they are often misused in current training programs and come with risk of injury. This workshop will teach you simple, replicable readiness assessments that prepare your clients to safely succeed in plyometric drills. You'll also learn the A to Zs of drill intensity, regressions and progressions to meet clients where they are at, and the most effective cues to guide their actions.
