Plyometrics, also known as "jump training" or "plyos", are exercises based around having muscles exert maximum force in as short of a time as possible, with the goal of increasing both speed and power. This training focuses on learning to move from a muscle extension to a contraction in a rapid or "explosive" way, for example with specialized repeated jumping. Plyometrics are primarily used by athletes, especially martial artists and high jumpers, to improve performance, and are used in the fitness field to a much lesser degree. (wikipedia)
Proper Plyometric Technique Is Essential
Beginners should only train under proper supervision, and start with easy and safe ground-level jump-offs onto padded surfaces such as grass or a gym mat over a wood gym floor.
The most effective plyometric programs emphasize the quality instead of the quantity of jumps, and teach safe landing techniques such as landing from toe to heel from a vertical jump, using the entire foot as a rocker to distribute the impact over a greater surface area, and avoiding excessive side-to-side motion at the knee. To promote low-impact landings, some instructors encourage participants to visualize themselves landing "as light as a feather."
More complicated exercises such as depth jumping should only be gradually introduced over time, and instructors need to assess participants' physical condition and injury status before advancing them to the next level. If necessary, a program can be modified over time to optimize gains and prevent over training.
Other important safety considerations include the use of foam or other soft barriers and boxes and jumping surfaces that can't twist on impact. Between training sessions, participants should rest for at least 48 hours. (Web MD)
