What a fantastic day. It started out slow and steadily built steam all day, the weather threatened to stifle filming but in the end we got some great footage and a great workout outside. I have been doing a lot of research into principles of plyometrics lately and I am finally seeing some DRAMATIC results in the gym. Check the facebook page for some great pictures of applying some of the concepts. The main principle of plyometrics is that our muscles are capable of achieving greater tensile strength, power and flexibility if they are extended prior to contracting fully. One example of this would be to perform a "clapping pushup" in which the exerciser pushes lowers themself to the ground then explodes up off the ground and clapping the hands together before catching oneself and safely descending back to the ground. In order for plyometric exercises to be performed safely, they must be peformed with a licenses coach or personal trainer and safety gear should be taken into consideration.
