Download Plyometrics and vertical jump training


book you go and visit the site as there are plenty of free vertical jump related training articles for you to enjoy and read. Most of the training ideas found on the site are tried and tested methods, whilst others are more directed at advanced athletes looking for some fresh ideas to take their development to the next level. While there is a plethora of free jump training information available, if you want to increase your vertical jump as fast as possible you really need to check out our brand new jump training book Game Changers. Game Changers is unlike ANY other jump training book. It isn't a jump program either. It is SO MUCH MORE than a jump program. Shock training was (and still is) a series of landing and jumping exercises based on the depth jump. Jumping itself is a volatile, violent event, where an athlete must handle multiple times their bodyweight in an instant. Jumping, like sprinting is a hindbrain activity, where reflex action is key. Plyometrics designed to overload the jumping. Learn how to jump higher with Jacob Hiller, vertical jump specialist. Learn how to dunk with free jump training techniques and jump higher.

More than , copies of his seminal book on the topic, Jumping Into Plyometrics, have been sold since He has presented extensively to professional groups around the world and consulted with athletes and teams at every level—including Olympians and professionals—on the development of training and conditioning programs/5(19). In their book, Supertaining, Siff and Verkhishansky redefined the concept of jump training by describing the "mechanics" of plyometrics in terms of speed, kinetic energy, and ground reaction force ultimately deriving a model that applies to more than just depth jumps and drop jumps. They called it "power-metric" and they defined it in terms of Author: Antonio Squillante. COVID Resources.

Plyometrics, also known as jump training or plyos, are exercises in which muscles exert maximum force in short intervals of time, with the goal of increasing power (speed-strength). This training focuses on learning to move from a muscle extension to a contraction in a rapid or "explosive" manner, such as in specialized repeated jumping. Plyometrics are primarily used by athletes, . A plyometric exercise is one that involves an eccentric contraction followed by an explosive movement of the same muscle. Plyometrics are performed to increase the ability of a muscle to generate explosive force, which in the case of the legs .   A conditioning program consisting of both plyometric training and resistance training can improve power performance in the vertical jump (13,14,29,30,31,32) and 40yard sprint time (33). It appears that concurrent resistance and plyometrics training can actually improve power to a greater extent than either one alone (13,29,30,33). Plyometric training, otherwise referred to as ‘plyometrics’ or ‘shock training’, is a training modality which often requires athletes to jump, hop, bound and/or skip. Plyometrics should not be confused with ‘ballistic’ training, which is ultimately another word for ‘trajectory’ training.
