Explosivo & the -ics

Is this confusing?

Explosive movements to end the month. Quick muscle contractions are the name of the game.

Eccentric + Concentric = Plyometrics.

Plyometrics (also known as “plyos”) is a type of exercise training designed to produce fast, powerful movements, and improve the functions of the nervous system, generally for the purpose of improving performance in sports. Plyometric movements, in which a muscle is loaded and then contracted in rapid sequence, use the strength, elasticity and innervation of muscle and surrounding tissues to jump higher, run faster, throw farther, or hit harder, depending on the desired training goal. Plyometrics is used to increase the speed or force of muscular contractions, providing explosiveness for a variety of sport-specific activities. Plyometrics has been shown across the literature to be beneficial to a variety of athletes. Benefits range from injury prevention, power development and sprint performance amongst others.

With this plyo session, we draw August BC to a close. Great job this month. Enjoy your break and stay active. We’ll see you back in September. The 9th month’ll be off the hook!

I leave you with this, as summer winds down: Athletes don’t wear flip flops (and, yes, you are all athletes).
