Plyometrics don’t require equipment, burn fat, shock your body, build strength & endurance and tone you up. Given all these benefits, plyometrics can be one of the best forms of cardio, especially if you don’t have access to the gym or are time-crunched. Plyometrics can also be used between resistance sets to keep your heart rate elevated and add intensity to your normal routine.
This week’s cardio program is going to feature all plyometrics. For 30 minutes, you are going to do as much plyometrics as possible. Wait…whatttt?! 30 minutes of straight plyos? Am I crazy? No. Well…okay, maybe just a little. But it isn’t as bad as you think! You will shape this program to suit your abilities.
Here’s what I mean…select some plyometric movements you want to do, specify a number of reps and take rests as needed. You may take as many 30 second, 1 minute or 2 minute breaks as you need. But, no sitting or giving up!
Here are some of the plyometric movements I choose to do that you can select from:
Switch up the exercises as often as you like throughout the 30 minutes. Have fun with this, and ask a friend to try it out with you! Set that timer, ready, set, go!
