Episode 17 Plyometrics in Strength Training
Plyometrics are often used in sports like soccer, basketball, football, track & field, etc. But they are not used quite as often in strength-based sports like Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting, and strongman. Which is a shame, because plyometrics and other power and velocity-based training methods can have a huge positive impact on performance.
In episode 17 we talk about how plyometrics can specifically improve areas of training adaption which will then help you with lifting heavier weights faster, getting past that sticking point, and hitting new PRs
Don't forget to subscribe to the podcast because in future episodes I will talk about other ways of increasing power, like lifting with bands and chains. You don’t want to miss out!
