I’m trying to generally include more Plyometric exercises into my workouts & more advanced classes - & this simple move on the reformer really ticks that box ...
What is it ?
It’s a method of power training used by many team and individual sports. In the simplest of terms, plyometrics are exercises that involve a jumping movement. For example, skipping, bounding, jumping rope, hopping, lunges, jump squats, and clap push-ups are all examples of plyometric exercises.
Why do them ?
Performances in any sport that involves jumping, sprinting or kicking can be improved with lower body plyometric exercises. Performance in sports such as basketball, volleyball, softball, baseball, tennis, badminton, golf and the throwing events in athletics can benefit with upper body plyometric exercises.
How much should I do ?
The goal is to train for maximum force production in the smallest period of time, so reps are kept low and the intensity and effort is high.
