This month’s workout is a plyometric conditioning circuit that will have you sweating bullets!
Plyometric training has so many benefits! Not only is it great to tone and sculpt the lower body, it also improves your cardiovascular endurance.
Plyometrics (‘plyos’ for short) are done at a high intensity with power and force! The goal is jump high, act fast, and take minimal to no rest until you have finished the entire set.
Your heart rate will shoot UP! Once you have completed the set you will rest for about 2-3 minutes and do it all over again!
Plyos are great for getting in a kick ass workout in minimal time, when you don’t have access to equipment, travelling, or when you want to do cardio but dread a machine!
You can do this workout literally ANYWHERE!
A well rounded athlete takes time to focus on cardiovascular endurance, just as they take time to work on overall strength and performance inside of the gym – remember that!
I’m positive my love for plyos shines bright with this one, they have become my specialty!
