Elite players, coaches, and trainers rely on plyometrics to develop power, agility, speed, strength, body control, balance, and overall athletic performance. In this authoritative guide to plyometrics, you’ll learn the most effective drills and exercises, and you’ll see the results.
In Plyometric Anatomy, authors Derek Hansen and Steve Kennelly share the training they have used to propel athletes at all levels to success. Together they detail 94 plyometric exercises, along with 78 variations that increase in difficulty for continued development over time. With content on bilateral exercises, unilateral exercises, core exercises, and plyometric combinations, it’s all here.
Best of all, you will go beyond the instruction and see the muscles in action. Each exercise is fully illustrated with detailed anatomical art to showcase how muscles interact with surrounding joints and skeletal structures. You will learn how variations, progressions, and sequencing can affect development, recovery, and ultimately performance.
With comprehensive coverage and expert insights, Plyometric Anatomy takes the guesswork out of training and provides the best tool to help you achieve dynamic strength and explosive power. It is the ultimate illustrative resource for maximizing athletic power production.
