Whether it's an explosive vertical jump or rapid sprinting stride, The
goal is to get your muscles to contract as fast as possible. The type

twitch). Before a muscle contracts, it actually stretches. So the cycle
from stretch to contraction is what plyometrics is designed to improve.
Plyometrics shortens the cycle time (milliseconds) between stretch and
make for more explosive energy output. Some of the best plyometrics
exercises involve loading your muscle and explosively resisting that
load, such as with Plyometrics boxes, Jumpsoles plyometrics platforms,
