Foundation Plyometrics

pat_box_jumpChoose a moderate intensity, plyometric drill, like box jumps, leaps, hurdle or ladder drills.

*CAUTION: “Moderate” is different for every athlete and is dependent on their strength, experience and ability level.

By manipulating the intensity, duration and rest, we can use more explosive movements, while still expanding our aerobic foundation.

Heart rate should stay under the anaerobic threshold (120-150 bpm) at all times.

Workout details:

  • 8-10 reps of exercise
  • 10-30sec rest
  • Repeated for 5-10 minutes
  • 1-3 exercises per workout

Exercises could include jumping, leaping, bounding, hops, plyo push ups, agility drills, med ball exercises, etc.
