Transcript of Plyometric training

Plyometric training Plyometric training is a form of strength training used to develop power and speed.
Examples of activities that can be done during plyometric training include:
Tuck jumps
Vertical jumps
Press up and hand clap
Double leg hops etc. It is used to train the eccentric aspect of the muscle action.
It involves rapid eccentric contraction of the muscles followed by a rapid concentric contraction.
Plyometrics is used to increase the speed or force of muscular contractions, providing explosiveness for a variety of sport-specific activities, therefore assisting the athlete in producing explosive movements and improving speed.
Plyometrcis specifically trains the neuro-muscular system which develops power strength & speed.
It allows an athlete to replicate the movements performed in a competition situation. Because it uses the athletes own body weight, minimal equipment is required.
Any athlete that utilizes the stretch reflex of the muscles to produce explosive reaction would find this training method useful. Atheletes in the following sports may benefit.
Footy & many more Frequency: 2 times per week during off season and once a week during in season. 48 hours rest between sessions at least.
Intensity: Vigorous- All plyometric exercises should be done quickly. To express the greater force the muscle must contract within the shortest possible time.
Time: 20-30 minute sessions
Type: Plyometric training
Plyometric movements use strength, elasticity of muscle and surrounding tissues to jump higher, run faster, throw farther, or hit harder, depending on the desired training goal.
