There are numerous scholarly articles on the studies of the beneficial effects of plyometrics. What I want to talk about is what make them a perfect addition to any warm-up routine. After a few dynamic stretches, moving in to a few plyometrics will get your heart rate up and prime your muscles for heavy lifting! Consider using a dynamic exercise that fits the workout you have scheduled that day. For example, if your workout is “leg day” get started with some some tuck jumps, drop jumps or box jumps. If you are heading into an upper body work out, use plyo-push-ups to prepare for a great bench press day! Give these a shot and let us know what you think and how your body responded. Did the weights feel lighter than usual? Did you have more energy through out the workout? Both are typical after incorporating plyometrics!
