Abstract: Plyometrics is a relatively new conditioning concept in this country, however, it has already proven to be a superior training method for the development of power. Plyometrics is designed to decrease the amortization phase of counter movement patterns, a process which involves quickly switching from overcoming work to imparting the necessary amount of acceleration in the required direction. A plyometric exercise or depth jump is a training drill performed by stepping down from a pre-determined height and immediately executing a maximal vertical rebound jump.
