Today I’m sharing a workout with you that combines strength training and plyometrics.
I love interspersing plyometric exercises into my clients workouts as well as my own. They are a great way to train power and speed while also driving the heart rate up.
The workout I’m sharing today features a strength training exercise followed immediately by a plyo exercise targeting the same muscle group.
Here’s your workout. I programmed the back and forth between strength and plyo to give you time for active recovery. I’m also alternating upper and lower body movements, which will also help you maintain a steady effort throughout. The strength exercises are pretty straight forward but some of the plyo movements might be unfamiliar so I made a quick video with a demo of all the exercises.
And here’s a photo guide to go along with it.
Clearly I’m feeling very resourceful today! 🙂
If you’re new to plyo movements, take it easy to start. Be mindful if you have injuries as jumping movements may not be the best choice for you. Always ask your doc if you’re feeling unsure about adding anything new to your workout routine. As always, I’d love your feedback if you give this a try.
