Plyometric Training

Plyometrics, also known as "jump training" or "plyos", are exercises in which muscles exert maximum force in short intervals of time, with the goal of increasing both speed and power. This training focuses on learning to move from a muscle extension to a contraction in a rapid or "explosive" manner,such as in specialized repeated jumping. Plyometrics are primarily used by athletes, especially martial artists and high jumpers, to improve performance, and are used in the fitness field to a much lesser degree.

Plyometric Phases

A plyometric exercise comprises of three phases:

  • Eccentric phase, or landing phase, involves the pre-loading (energy is stored) of the agonist muscle group
  • Amortization phase, or transition phase, is the time between the concentric and eccentric phases. This time needs to be as short as possible otherwise the energy stored during the eccentric phase dissipates, reducing the plyometric effect
  • Concentric phase, or take-off phase, uses the stored energy to increase the force of the movement
