Skimble’s Program Spotlight: Plyometrics

Plyometrics_1_programspotlight_1Simply said, plyometrics are exercises that include some type of jumping element. Plyometrics are often quick, explosive, fast movements that use more energy than typical strength training exercises. The benefit to plyometric training is that it can boost your muscle power and strength, improve your balance and make you more agile. These are all abilities sought after by many top athletes in all sports!

Plyometrics + introduces you to plyometric type exercises, like hopping, jumping, burpees and ice skaters, while still incorporating more traditional exercises. Plyometrics ++ combines plyometric exercises, like box jumps, jumping lunges, and single leg hops, with traditional strengthening exercises to start challenging your coordination. Plyometrics +++ is a mix of plyometric movements, with other strength and dynamic endurance exercises. To get the most out of these programs you need to be explosive and sharp with your movements! In all three programs some workouts are lighter on the plyometric type exercises to give your muscles time to recover.
