Plyometric Workout Challenge

When it comes to the training tips, Olympians do a lot of plyometric and body weight exercises. The Plyometric Workout Challenge implements both plyometric moves and body weight exercises. If you have a local track or a safe outdoor place to workout, that would be a great location to do this routine.

Equipment Needed: water, a 12” step, interval timer
