Background

Step III is adding the “explosive” elements that build fast twitch muscle groups in your body. Primarily the fast twitch muscles in your lower body will be a focus of this unit. Nearly all athletic disciplines and weight loss journeys benefit greatly from plyometric exercises— you’ll be doing quite a few of them.

A couple things to remember: Unlike cardio, there is no goal of going constantly and at a consistent speed; rather the goal in these exercises is to go “big”. For example: when you see jumps of any kind, you need to take the time to get the maximum height out of every jump.

You now have two components of maintenance to keep up with. We’ll do 5 minutes of cardio maintenance as your warm-up this unit. Then, we’ll end every workout with your core maintenance.
