1

What is Plyometric Training?

quick, powerful movement involving an eccentric contraction, followed immediately by an explosive concentric contraction

2

What is the Eccentric Phase of Plyometrics?

This phase increases muscle spindle activity by pre stretching the muscle prior to activation

3

What is the Amortization Phase of Plyometrics?

The time between the end of the eccentric contraction and the initiation of the concentric contraction

4

What is the Concentric Phase of Plyometrics?

Occurs immediately after the amortization phase and involves a concentric contraction
