Plyometric Training - Sounds cool, but what is it?

Last blog post we explored our different energy systems and how our body utilises our energy to train with optimal efficiency, but what about the type of training whilst we're within those work zones?

Well, to answer that question we might want to take a look at some of our fundamental blocks of fitness. Strength, Speed, Endurance, Stamina, Endurance, Power? We could have some fun here and make up another 40 buzz words but again, if we're smart about the type of training we undertake we can improve rapidly in each particular block.

With Plyometric training, we are looking to improve our skill of producing Power. In order to understand Power, we need to know some basics on differentiating some of these definitions, in particular we'll look at Strength versus Power.
