Plyometrics for Athletes at All Levels

By Neal Pire

Athletes will do anything to be more competitive. They’ll buy the latest equipment, practice for hours, and even pay a personal trainer for lessons. This book offers them a more fundamental way to perform better: improve their overall athleticism.


The plyometrics exercises in this book are proven to help athletes progressively enhance their speed, agility, quickness, and jumping ability. The sport-specific workouts are not about getting in shape, they’re about getting to a crosscourt backhand faster, reaching higher for a rebound, or making a sharper cut to get open in front of the goal.


Plyometrics for Explosive Speed and Power provides the nonprofessional with an easy-to-understand explanation of why plyometrics works, the sports-training research behind it, and how to integrate plyometrics into an overall fitness program. It provides complete illustrated descriptions for each exercise and includes an easy-to-follow index listing each exercise by level and category, based on desired performance outcome.
