Plyometric Training Concepts

Plyometric Training is synonymous with: Reactive Training
What must a client have before doing Plyometric Training? Core Strength, joint stability, and range of motion, and have the ability to balance efficiently before performing any plyometric exercises.
The ability of muscle to exert maximal force output in a minimal amount of time is called? Rate of Force Production
What are exercises that generate quick, powerful movements involving an explosive concentric muscle contraction preceded by an eccentric muscle action? Plyometric Training
To move with efficiency, forces must be dampened, stabilized and then accelerated. Integrated Performance paradigm
Why train Plyometricly? Plyometric training improves neuromuscular efficiency and improves the range of speed set by the central nervous system.
Which phase is prestretching the muscle before activation? Eccentric Phase
Which phase is the transition between eccentric and concentric? Amortization Phase or dynamic stabilization
The nervous system recruits muscles only at speeds at which it has been . .. trained to do so!
The ultimate goal of plyometric training is? Decrease the reaction time of muscle action.
What are the 3 levels of plyometric training? Stabilization, strength, and power
These are examples of which phase:Squat jump with stabilization, box jump-up with stabilization,Box jump down with stabilization, Muliplanar jump with stabilization Stabilization phase
Which phase has a short time on the ground and these moves? Squat Jump, Tuck Jump, Butt Kick, Power step up? Strength Phase
Which phase includes Ice skaters, single-leg power step up and proprioceptive plyometrics? Plyometric power phase
