"shock" method of training.

What is termed at plyometrics in West is many time a dilution of Verkhoshanky;s
original shock methods, and an attempt to encompass all those drills under the
same name is IMO wrong.
There are people who debate the semantics of all this: shock training, plyometrics, "true plyometrics," etc. I don't think it's a big deal though.
