Plyometric Fitness exercises are specialized, high intensity training techniques used to develop athletic power (strength and speed). Plyometrics, also known as "jump training" or "plyos", are exercises in which musclesexert maximum force in short intervals of time, with the goal of increasing power (speed-strength).Plyometric movements use strength and elasticity of muscle tissues to increase the speed or force of muscular contraction; therefore allowing someone to jump higher, move faster, throw harder, or to further improve performance in any particular sport.
Plyometrics fitness includes explosive powerful training exercises that are trained to activate the quick response and elastic properties of the major muscles in the body. A plyometric fitness exercise consists of 2 different phases: the lengthening phase, and the stretch-shortening phase. During the lengthening phase your muscles are "loaded" (like stretching a rubber band) which is immediately followed by a shortening contraction. For example, when doing squats, going from start position to the squat position is considered the lengthening phase. The next phase, the stretch-shortening phase, is considered the plyometric contraction. This is the explosive movement of contracting your muscles. With the example of the squat, this would be considered the movement from the squat position back to the start position, in a brisk, explosive motion. The main purpose is for the muscle to generate a strong and lengthened contraction as quickly as possible.
Examples of Plyometric Exercises Common activities such as box jumps, jumping rope, hurdle jumps, sliding, and even jumping jacks can be classified as plyometric exercise. Regular participation in a plyometric training along with Strength training programs may help to strengthen bone and facilitate weight control . For most athletes the goal of Plyometric fitness is agility and speed improvement as well as muscle gains to increase their abilities as an athlete.
Safety of Plyometrics plyometric training is a safe, beneficial and fun activity provided that the program is properly designed and supervised.
