    Plyometrics Plyometrics is a way of training specific muscular power. It can be done as a training session on its own, or combined as a station in with a weight/circuit training session. Plyometrics involves eccentric muscle contraction (stretching of the muscle) followed by a rapid concentric contraction (shortening of the muscle) to provide an explosive movement. It primarily involves leaping, bounding, hopping, skipping and rebounding activities. The speed component is vital, and it links in closely with strength and power training. A word of warning with plyometric training: because of the explosive nature of the activity, the risk of injury is high. As a result, you need to be well warmed up, have a good level of strength already, not perform them when you are fatigued and provide suitable footwear and shock absorption on the landing. Check the stress index below for a suitable starting level and a guide to recovery.

    Plyometric Stress Index Rating Recovery time Typical example 1 = very low stress Very rapid Skipping, jump rope or other low level jumping 2 = low stress Rapid - 1 day Tuck jumps 3 = moderate stress 1-2 days Stair jumping or similar short jumps 4 = high stress Slow - 2 days Hops or bounds for distance 5 = very high stress Very slow - 3 days Depth jumps or similar shock-type jumps
