Often called “Jump Training” Plyometrics are exercises in which muscles exert maximum force in short intervals of time, with the goal of increasing power (speed-strength). This training focuses on learning to move from a muscle extension to a contraction in a rapid or “explosive” manner, such as in specialized repeated jumping, which enhances performance in athletes. Plyometrics training is an intense form of exercise that will help athletes improve the power of their movements. We work with children from all school districts from early elementary to high school and college athletes. Our classes assist with our Basketball Camps, as well as our Basketball Tournaments and Team in Park Ridge.
