Plyometric exercises are variations of movements such as jumping and running that are designed to train the muscles of the lower half of the body. A common example would be standing on a box or bench, then jumping off as quickly as possible with the maximum force generated by the leg muscles.

The overall benefits of plyometric exercises are increased muscle speed and power, improved athletic performance, improved cardiovascular health, and an overall stronger body.

You can train your muscles to be faster using plyometric exercises so you can become a better athlete at whatever sport you play.

Anyone can achieve these benefits by adding plyometric exercises into their workout regimen.
