I think the fast feet exercises that he did along with other plyos before baseball started were more helpful than either of us had realized but time on the bike has also been something that he is going to need to make time for.
What sort of regimen should he be doing to keep his BMX conditioning up while involved in a sport that uses a whole other set of muscles?

It will total about an additional 10 minutes at each workout session but should pay off.

Maybe so...But the results are there. Some of the BMX parents on here have trained some #1 riders and many podium finishers.
Hopefully it is a serious question??
To me the standard plyometric is a squat jump with both feet. Trying to jump as high as possible with the fastest explosion possible. I call a them high knee plyos when you do the same while trying to bring your knees to your chest. IMO it makes for faster muscle movement.
I also recommend them right after squats, because you have your power muscles (type 2b) fully engaged at that point, and it is a perfect time to train them under those conditions for maximum speed.
Box jumps are good too IMO, along with jump rope but the only way I would include them as a plyometric is if you are dbl jumping.

Not for speed though.
