You’ll start with foundation exercises such as squat jumps, double-leg speed hops, and medicine ball twists and passes. Next comes the power-building exercises including tuck and scissors jumps, floor kips, arm swings, and sit-up throws. Then you’ll move on to high-intensity drills like depth jumps, vertical swings, drop pushes, and heavy bag strokes.

From a new and novel form of exercise in the 1980s, plyometrics is now an essential part of every serious athlete’s conditioning program.
