Default Plyometric Training

http://www.michaelboyle.biz/joomla/content/view/115/34/

While short I thought this was a somewhat informative article on plyometrics by Mike Boyle.

So no more than 25 movemets per day or 100 per week divided into different groups.

The only thing I didn't understand was the different groups.

I understand box jumping - and it's the most low intensity. I enjoy that myseld and do it as often as I can remember. I also do a lot of medicine ball drills for my upper body and side jump hurdles when I'm feeling randy.

But what are the other movements he's describing?

I'm very interested in plyometric training.

All the best,
Arden

Fairly good.

What groups did you understand? The hopping, skipping, etc.? Or was it the planes in which you should do stuff in?

Obviously, it's part of a larger article so he didn't get to describe any of the other exercises in that small section.

I understanding depth jumps, bounding (which I interpret as jumping onto boxes), and broad jumps (horizontal distance).

Other than that, I'm a little unschooled on the other more complex movements he's describing.

I hope that helps?

All the bes,t

Arden,

The USAW website also states that the Performance Coach Cert deals with plyos and medicine balls also.

From the article:
Quote:
Jump—two leg take-off and landing
Hop—single leg take-off landing on the same foot
Bound—single leg take-off landing on the opposite foot
Skip—single leg takeoff with two foot contacts

I'm going to check this out.

One of the things I've love to do is just train a day with a group working on cleans and snatches, plios etc. I love the group atmosphere.

All the best,
Arden

What's interesting is if you're doing power cleans or power snatches it actually has a significant plyometric component specifically like depth drops because you well explosively lift the weight and then stablize it right away at a certain height (instead of having the eccentric to absorb some of the force into the front or overhead squat).

Anyway, yeah. Carry on.
