Improve Strength and Speed with Plyometric Training

Improve Strength and Speed with Plyometric Training

Plyometrics—a type of movement involving the legs, core, or upper extremities—uses a quick, eccentric-concentric phase to harness elastic muscle properties while using neural drive to increase the number of active motor units, thus netting explosive power and acceleration. The plyometric effect of conditioning is intended to help bridge the gap...
