Did you know that Running is actually a plyometric activity?
Plyometrics = aka jump training or Plyos are exercises in which muscles exert maximum force in short intervals of time, with the goal of increasing power (speed-strength).
The goal is to reduce contact time with the ground and requires a quick muscle stretch and shorten cycle. Think of pulling a rubber band and then quickly releasing it!
In this video , @ironptmom is demonstrating a few of her favorite jump rope drills to train quick feet while challenging the coordination of her core and pelvic floor.
Can you land softly and impact with the ground and your feet?
Can you jump and open your legs (like jumping jacks) without peeing?
