Plyometrics — also known as jump training — is a training technique designed to increase muscular power and explosiveness.

Plyometric training conditions the body with dynamic resistance exercises that rapidly stretch a muscle (eccentric phase) and then rapidly shorten it (concentric phase). Hopping and jumping exercises, for example, subject the quadriceps to a stretch-shortening cycle that can strengthen these muscles, increase vertical jump, and reduce the force of impact on the joints.

If you’re considering plyometrics, it’s important to consult with a sports medicine physician to help you evaluate your ability to participate in a plyometric training program.

Plyometric training is designed to help you reach peak physical condition. Combined with a good strength training program and assessment and it becomes a very effective form of power training.
