These are our top plyometric exercises, even better as a finisher to your regular workout. For example, after doing a full body workout, performing box burpees until failure would be an excellent way to shock your body into adapting in different ways than it is used to.
If you aren’t already using them it’s definitely a great way to activate muscles you may not have even existed and keep your workouts exciting. Bare in mind most of these are capable of being done without a box, however the box adds an extra level of difficultly and progression which some people may not need straight away.
It’s also worth adding you don’t need to go out and buy a plyo box. Many of these exercises could be achieved at your local park, perhaps on a solid park bench or similar object.
Before you continue, please remember that you need to warm up.
If are are unsure about some of the terms used in this article, it’s worth having a quick read through our Glossary of Terms before you get started with your workout.
Tip: The higher the box, the harder the jump.
Tip: Jump back down in to the squat position to make it tougher (to make it easier, simply step back off the box and start again)
All of these exercises offer an alternative to finish your regular workout and really get the blood pumping. Or combine them together to create an independent workout to perform and reap the benefits of high intensity, big compound movements by smashing through plateaus.
Before you finish, remember that you should spend time cooling down.
