Power: Plyometrics 06:22

Plyometric Training enhances the elasticity of the body and takes advantage of our stretch-shortening cycle which is composed of 3 phases: Eccentric (tissue loading), Amortization (transition time), Concentric (tissue unloading).

The shorter the transition time, the greater plyometric effect. For this to occur, we need

  • a nervous system that is highly sensitive and reactive
  • eccentric motor control
  • tissue that is very elastic
  • strong concentric force production

The more plyometric our movement, the more energy-efficient our body can locomote.
