Remember the fun you had as a kid, hopping, skipping, and jumping around the playground? The exercises you do with plyometrics mimic those dynamic moves Plyometrics (“plyo,” for short) used to be called “jump training.” It’s a technique that you can use in many different ways You’ll do a series of jumps and hops, like jump squats or one-leg hops. You might jump up and onto a box or bench, or jump over cones. Some moves will be faster than others.
Every time you land from a jump, your muscles get a stretch. That gives your next jump even more power. The combination of stretching and contracting your muscles whips them into shape You won’t do plyometrics every day, because your muscles will need a break from all that jumping.
