6 Quick Plyometric Exercises
Get more out of your workout by adding these high-intensity plyometric exercises to your routine.
What Are Plyometrics?
Want to improve your fitness level by leaps and bounds? Try plyometrics. These high-intensity, explosive movements rev up your heart rate and burn major calories (around 150 from this routine!) while challenging multiple muscle groups and strengthening bones. All you need is a stopwatch and the following moves from Katie Riley, a personal trainer and fitness instructor at Evolve Health & Fitness, in San Diego. For the best results, do the series two times through, three times a week. Before you start, warm up with 30 seconds of marching in place, 30 seconds of jogging in place, and a few squats.
