Jump training and plyometrics are high level training methods designed to improve explosive power. Increasing the rate of force production improves performance, training the body’s ability to decelerate and absorb impact, improving athleticism and decreasing the likelihood of injury. Created by the Merrithew team, this CORE workshop explores the proper technique, programming and progressions that keep this type of training safe and beneficial for clients. Learn to help any athlete jump higher, run faster, swing faster, hit harder, accelerate quicker and ultimately perform better.
