So What’s The Point Of Training Plyometrics?

So What’s The Point Of Training Plyometrics?

  1. Are you interested in learn more about what plyometrics are and how to use the training in your own workouts? 
  2. Do you need to understand a safe and effective approach to training plyometrics in your own workouts? 
  3. Are you aware of the benefits involved with plyometric training? 

First, I want to take a second to clear the air about training plyometrics. Lately I’ve seen plenty of keyboard warriors the internet being blowhards about how plyometrics are a waste of time and are senseless when it comes to incorporating them into your training.

No, such advice is absurd and is coming from someone that knows nothing about plyometrics. As a strength and conditioning coach that has trained hundreds and even thousands of athletes and serious fitness enthusiasts over a 17 year career I can tell you that plyometrics can be a huge asset to your fitness and overall training program if you understand how to apply them safely and effectively.

Why You Shouldn’t Perform Box Jumps As A Conditioning Drill

Why You Shouldn’t Perform Box Jumps As A Conditioning Drill

So today I pulled this article from the archives on training the box jump. As far as training for power and athleticism the box jump is supposed to be fairly idiot proof, especially if you compare it to trying to learn more complex movements such as Olympic lifting.

With that being I’ve still witnessed many people who butcher the box jump while training on their own. I thought today was good time to pull this article from the archives to help you in case your were in doubt about your box jumps. I know you’re going to find this article very helpful!

  1. Are you incorporating more athletic based drills into your strength and conditioning workouts? 
  2. Are you performing box jumps during some of your athletic workouts? 
  3. Do you execute box jumps like a conditioning drill? 
  4. Are you performing box jumps in a way to maximize benefit and minimize stress on your joints? 

So today I decided to get away from improper squatting, improper deadlifting, and improper kettlebell swing technique and switch over to another problem and address the improper use of the box jump exercise. Today I’m going to hit on why box jumps shouldn’t be used as a conditioning drill in your strength and conditioning program. If you’ve been using box jumps as a conditioning drill then make sure you take a minute to pump the brakes and read this article. You’ll be thanking me for it later.
