Plyometric training is a type of workout that involves a lot of movement. It is a type of power training that involves muscles to contract and extend rapidly in an explosive manner. It is also called Jump training because plyo exercises engage your muscles the same way it is engaged in a high jump. This type of training is generally used to make your muscles have more speed-strength, and it does so by making your muscles exert maximum force in set intervals.Plyometric training is typically done by athletes who play sports such as tennis and martial arts. This doesn’t mean that only athletes can do it. People who get out of rehabilitation or a hospital after an injury, also do plyometric exercises. However, a good trainer who is an expert in this specific type of workout is needed.
Doing plyometric exercises without proper guidance can be harmful. The term plyometric was coined in 1975 by Fred Wilt, an Olympic long-distance runner, after he saw some Russians doing jumps as part of their warm-up routine. Fred researched and gained knowledge about the benefits of this type of jumps. Initially, plyometric(meaning the shock method) was only for depth jumps (like the squat jumps). However, today plyometric involves a lot of exercises such as push ups that have the capability to shock your muscles. These types of exercise do not need any equipment and are more cardiovascular in nature. It keeps your heart healthy and improves endurance. You can choose the type of exercises that suit you and slowly increase your intensity.
