Plyometrics Exercises with Videos & Instructions
Plyometrics exercises are perfect for martial arts training. They develop the ability to "explode" from a static position (think of a horse exploding out of the gate). This combination of speed and power is an important skill to learn in order to excel at sparring and/or self-defense. The plyometrics exercises listed below will also help you to develop more powerful martial arts kicks and punches. Plyometrics also helps to improve conditioning and overall strength.
However, be aware that if plyometrics exercises are performed incorrectly or are performed without an adequate level of basic physical conditioning (i.e. being out of shape), they can increase the risk of potential injuries (i.e. to your knees). Consult with your doctor and martial arts instructor before starting these exercises. Not recommended for people with existing medical issues. All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained martial arts instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. If you have had an injury or are in pain, please see a doctor before starting any stretching or exercise program. For additional stretches and exercises, please visit the main Martial Arts Physical Fitness section.
