The gym can be a scary place if you don’t know what you’re doing. So, what are the different types of strength and power training and which is best for you?
Want to jump higher, sprint faster and improve reactive speed? These are valuable qualities for an athlete. Most people who train have heard of plyometrics and the fact that plyometric training can improve power output is fairly common knowledge. But how can you do it?
A systematic guide to explosive power training for athletes, coaches and strength and conditioning experts.
Also known as jump training, plyometrics are a group of exercises based on the principle of having muscles exert maximum force in as short a time as possible, with the intention of increasing both strength and power. Plyometric training has become an important element in most sport conditioning programmes over the past two decades. This book provides science-based, and tested exercises and programmes to ensure optimal power with minimal risk of injury. This comprehensive guide also includes sport-specific power training regimes for basketball, soccer, football, rugby and volleyball, and shows how to integrate those plans into a total athlete development programme.
