Plyometric training exercises, which are also known as speed or jump training exercises are exercises ... that force the body’s musculature to exert maximum force over a short duration or period of time. Plyometric training exercises are performed in order to increase an athlete’s power, speed, and overall strength. Plyometric training is unique because its main focus is to train the athlete’s muscles to quickly go from extension to contraction in short period of time, which results in increased overall power output. Plyo boxes, which are also known as jump boxes, are primarily used as a solid base for performing plyometric exercises. As plyometric exercises increase strength, power, speed, and explosiveness, they are perfect for any athlete looking to break through strength plateaus or add some variety to their strength training workout program.
