bmxers parents train crazily. what does plyometric imply? is that where you jump up and down like an idiot? or is there more to it. is jumping rope a plyo? how about box jumps? running squares? what about 1 legged plyos? do you pedal on both feet?
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.
