Plyometrics is a method of exercising designed to increase your speed and explosive power.

An exercise is considered plyometric when a rapid eccentric contraction is followed by a rapid concentric action.

It involves explosive exercises such as jumps for the lower body and throws for the upper body and core.

Plyometric training is advanced and should only be performed by those who have an adequate strength base.

Examples of plyometric exercises are squat jumps and explosive push ups.
