How do Plyometric Exercises Work?

Plyometrics was once called jump training, which is now a technique used by athletes in many different ways. Some good examples of sports that benefit from this type of training are football, basketball, volleyball, tennis, rugby, baseball, or any other sporting activity that requires quick explosive movements.

Plyometrics are exercises in which muscles, exert maximum force in short burst intervals of time, with the goal of increasing power and speed strength. These exercises help build vertical strength and explosive power. The combination of stretching and contracting muscles help strengthen and tone muscle groups not generally used during traditional workouts. It is always advisable to cross train and perform other exercises on rotating days to allow your muscles to recover.
