15 Horizontal Based Plyometric Progressions
How To Progress Safely From >0.25s to <0.25s
One for all you athletes and coaches out there!
Lets get refocussed and get back to working on things that are going to develop you or your athletes athletically.
The two major athletic abilities i continually see underdeveloped during fitness testing and sports performance when remotely consulting with athletes and teams are;
Enchancing both these qualities has the potential to improve sports peformance and lower injury risk. Even better they require no to minimal equipment.
The attached video is a 15 exercise floor based progression model for horizontal plyometrics.
This model provides safe guidelines for developing the stretch reflex from >0.25sec landing mechanics to a stretch reflex for optimal sports performance <0.25sec via 15 plyometric progressions
The model includes two progressive overloading mechanisms
- Force Production / Force Absorbtion
- Low Eccentric SSC Introduction
- SSC Development
- High Eccentric SSC
- Landing Mechanics
- Unilateral Alternate
- Unilateral Ipsilateral
Coaches and Athletes shall also find training load guidelines via
Session Foot Contacts
- Beginners – 30 – 100
- Intermediate – 100 – 200
- Advanced – 200+
Reps & Sets Guidelines
- Bilateral – 3sets x 5reps to 6sets x 5reps = 15 – 30 foot contacts
- Unilateral – 2sets x 5reps to 3sets x 5reps = 20 – 30 foot contacts
In theory athletes and coaches could use these plyometric progressions and guidelines to build a periodized plyometric training plan which could last for 12 months+ depending on the progress of you or your athletes.
