Plyometric Exercises – Tuesday
We practiced plyometric exercises: lunges, side lunges, squat jumps, and plyometric push ups.
To do the lunge you must take a step forward (big step) quickly and hold the pose with 90 degree angles on limbs. For side lunge you just lunge to the side.
For squat jumps we jumped off a ledge and then squat landed then jump back up. For the plyometric push ups we did push ups.
The point of plyometrics is to exert muscles in as short a time possible. We use plyometrics to increase our speed and power.
