Plyometric training tips from our own athlete Lukesha Morris

Take body weight exercise to the next level by incorporating powerful jumps. Plyometrics exercises activate the muscles with a quick explosive force. Your muscles contract as you jump and stretch as you land. This combination of contracting and stretching leads to significant improvements in speed and strength. Plyometric training activates the elastic properties of your muscles which improves your agility and stamina. Furthermore, plyometric exercises are high intensity and great calorie burners.

Try these Plyometric moves to get your started. Will you be ready for Lukesha’s challenge in the New Year?
