... ... Jumping and Jopping for Runners - Mile27
Dec 092011

Last week I wrote about the benefits of plyometric training for runners and why it should be done incorporating three planes of movement. I had a few requests for a video of the exercise routine to better understand how to do it. I hope this helps.

This routine is a good introduction into plyometric training in three planes but should be progressed as your body adapts.

One way to progress is to add additional jumps before returning to the start position. i.e instead of jumping forward and then immediately backwards, jump forward three times and then backward three times. You can also do this for all the other directions. I will give you some time to master this and then I’ll go over a more advanced plyometric workout.
