The major muscle groups that perform traditional exercises are known as your prime movers (e.g., pecs, lats, quadriceps, hamstrings, gluteus maximus, deltoids, etc.).
Often, an athlete's weakest link will be his behind-the-scenes muscles, (e.g., rotator cuff, middle and lower trapezius, serratus anterior gluteus medius, abdominals, etc.).
Research has shown an improvement (or potentiation) of the plyometric exercise, in that more force and power can be developed. It’s not a superset, so don’t perform these exercises like a circuit.
When bodybuilding or training for muscle growth, lifters typically rest for only about 30-60 seconds between sets.
Even though the weight is heavy, your intent should be to move the weight as fast as possible.
After a 3–10 minute break, you'll do a similar plyometric exercise for about 5-10 reps. If the break between the strength and plyometric exercise is too short, you’ll experience fatigue and a decrease in jump performance.
You should also experiment with logging fewer training sessions per week, which will give your central nervous system more time to recover between strength-focused training sessions.
Nothing builds running speed and quickness on the field than sprinting itself.
Yeah, we've seen those Facebook videos of dudes squatting on top of hoverboards or stability balls.
But here's the reality: Strength training shouldn’t be a circus act.
