Improve Power With Bodyweight Plyometrics

Bodyweight plyometric workouts will improve your power output! And, one-legged plyometric exercises are more intense than two-legged plyometric exercises. Shorten and intensify your workouts with jump training (plyometrics)! Plyometric workouts also blast more fat and calories during and after your workout!

Improving your power with exercises like long jumps and squat jumps will also improve your speed.

Bodyweight plyometric workouts are advanced workouts. You need to perfect jumping and landing techniques or you will injure yourself. And, if you have knee and low back problems, high-speed jump training is not for you.

Try this plyometric workout (take little or no rest between exercises):

--jump rope, two feet, full speed, 1 minute
--squat jumps (pictured above), 10, full speed
--lunge jumps, 10, full speed
--depth jumps (off knee-high platform), 10
--tuck jumps, 10, full speed
--lateral cone hops, 30 seconds, full speed

Rest 1 minute between exercises. Rest 2-3 minutes between circuits. Repeat the circuit 2-3 times. Take more rest between exercises or circuits if needed.

Try bodyweight plyometric workouts to improve your power output!
