Front Box Jump

  • The most popular plyometric exercise used to strengthen glute muscles and quadriceps. Very effective at increasing your vertical jump.
  • Use a plyo box and put it about 6 inches to the front of you
  • Enter a crouch position with feet shoulder width in distance
  • From crouch position, burst upwards using the entire body which includes arms
  • Land on the balls of your feet on top of the box as soft as you can

Broad Jump

  • No first step or running start used. Instead, requires a deep crouch to propel yourself forward as far as you can go. Builds true leg strength and glutes.
  • Use a semi-soft surface such as a gym mat
  • Enter a deep crouch with feet about shoulder width in distance facing a clear space
  • Explode up, using entire body to thrust self forward
  • Land softly on the ground or mat and immediately transition into next rep

Skater Jumps

  • Activation of lateral strength. Increases power in the quadriceps and glute muscles. With all your weight on one leg, it helps your balance. This reduces a tendency to rely on the stronger leg during jumps that use two legs.
  • Enter crouch position with feet close together. Majority of weight is on the right leg
  • Launch laterally from the right leg to the left leg
  • Land softly on the left leg and move the right leg behind as if doing a “Curtsy Lunge”
  • Repeat, this time from the left leg. That’s one rep
