The ability to apply a reactive force is the major goal of plyometric training.
An increase in power will directly correlate to an increase in Speed and Explosion.
We will implement plyometrics on Monday and Thursday during our speed / plyo
It is extremely important to land properly when absorbing force.
Feet under hips, hips above knees, in power position, chest tall, knees over toes,
weight on front two-thirds of feet.
Perfect takeoff and landing technique. Don’t land below parallel!
Camps & Combines rate and rank players off of verticals, broad jumps, and 40
times make sure you attack these drills!
