Plyometrics are extremely intense and provide one of the most gut-wrenching workouts possible. They will build immense speed and power to improve your fitness tremendously.

(Note: Beginners should be able to perform most bodyweight exercises before moving on to these higher impact plyometrics exercises.)

What’s cool about plyometrics:

  • Build explosive power without need for weights.
  • More intense than any other bodyweight exercises.
  • More fun and exciting than simply running sprints.
