Sports Performance Training
Plyometric training is an explosive way to get stronger and fitter while building endurance and speed. However, many programs don’t include plyometric gym classes as part of their regimens. This means athletes are missing out on a proven way to get better at their sport.
If you’re not familiar with plyometrics, you may be surprised at your first plyometric workout class at Power Train. However, what we hear from our athletes is that they’re happy to be challenged by activities that include the following characteristics:
During all that leaping, hopping and jumping, the muscles in your body are rapidly stretched. This phase is known in science as an “eccentric phase.” The muscles are then just as rapidly shortened, known as a “concentric phase.” As the muscles are forced from eccentric to concentric phases, they are strengthened. Over time, this strength improves your vertical jumping ability while reducing the impact on your joints when you land..
One of the biggest benefits to plyometric training is that it helps athletes across a wide variety of sports. From swimmers to ice hockey players, all athletes can benefit when plyometrics are applied. Plus, because plyometrics structured by professional trainers has been shown to be safe, it can be utilized by athletes from most age groups and abilities.
