Add power to your workout! If you want to build strength throughout your entire body while burning major calories, I highly recommend plyometrics.
Plyometrics (or plyos) are explosive exercises that use jump training—jump squats, jump lunges, and the like. They strengthen your muscles by working them to their maximum potential in a short window.
With consistent practice, you’ll find yourself more powerful: jump higher, run faster, move quicker, do better! Not to mention, your body will take on a leaner and meaner shape. ;)
Here are 4 plyo moves you can try at 90 seconds per move, repeating 2 rounds for a quick and effective workout in just 12 minutes! (Beginners and intermediate, try 30-60 seconds per move to start.)
1. Sumo Jump Squats
2. Lateral Jump Squat Cross Reach
3. Plyo Pushups
4. Alternating Lunge Jumps (or Split Jump)
Get ready to fire up those legs!
