The Big Bang Workout

Plyometric exercises are an excellent way of utilizing the stretch–shortening cycle to develop athletic performance. The stretch–shortening cycle is defined as an active stretch of a muscle followed by an immediate shortening of that same muscle; it is a key component in explosive movements, ranging from jumps to bounds to clapping push-ups. This workout utilizes several plyometric movements to challenge your conditioning and ability to repeat explosive efforts.

Try this warm-up before completing the full workout: 5 reps of squat to stand; 6 reps per side of kneeling adductor stretch, hip rocker, and quadruped T-spine rotation.
