Coaches Tip: Include Plyometrics In Your Training.
Plyometric training improves running and cycling performance for endurance athletes by allowing muscles to produce more force with less energy. Well that is also why it is great for all sports including soccer, golf, track and field, football, baseball and any other sport you enjoy playing.
At Performance Strength Lab we include Plyometrics in our programing weekly. Some great Plyometric Drills you can start doing include:
Jumps In Place: Squat Jump and Tuck Jumps
Standing Jumps: The vertical jump and jumps over barriers are examples of standing jumps.
Multiple hops and jumps: These include zigzag hops, jumping rope, jumping in and out.
Bounds: Bounding drills normally cover distances greater than 90 ft. It is an exaggerated movement with greater horizontal speed than other drills.
Box Drills: Box drills use a box to jump onto or off or both.
Depth Jumps: Depth jumps use gravity and the athlete's weight to increase exercise intensity. Depth jumps are stepping off a box and immediately jumping.
Medicine Ball Drills: Throws and Catches
