Plyometric training is an effective tool for almost any individual. Whether your goal is to lose weight, increase speed and agility, or improve your reaction time, you should be doing some form of plyometric workout.
Plyometrics encompass all quick, explosive movements. Depending on your skill level, this could be any movements from a box jump to how you get out of a chair, or a decline power push up to a power push up on the wall. Only you know your true skill level. Find the appropriate starting point for you, but challenge yourself. If you are finishing an exercise and think you could have done more, increase your level of difficulty.
