For athletes striving to take their skills to the next level plyometric leg workouts are essential because they are designed to help athletes perform powerful and explosive movements.  This vertical jump hurdle drill with enhances the stimulation in the muscles in the legs, thighs, hips, hip flexors, glutes and core.  The bands are forcing the athlete to push through the resistance to get enough height to jump up and over the hurdle.  This is a great drill to develop explosive and powerful moves.  Notice also how Myosource Kinetic Bands enhance proper form for jumping and landing in this drill.  If an athlete fails to maintain proper form, balance and stability they may not make it over the hurdle. When the body is out of control these hurdle jumps do not go well.

During this Plyometric Hurdle Drills each athlete will be jumping vertically over the hurdles.  Notice that not only does the athlete have to get great jump height but also have to work to gain ground in order to go up and forward.Often athletes will perform this drill over 3-5 hurdles and then sprint to a finish line. This is not in the video but after she finishes her jumps she goes into a full on sprint to working on increasing speed.  The resistance is activating the muscles throughout this athlete’s body. She has to drive her knees up using her upper body and core for a quick explosive jump.  Notice how this athlete lands each jump showing stability and control.  She uses proper arm movements to help increase her momentum over the hurdle. Make sure to extend the hips and drive those knees in a smooth and quick motion.

Do not forget that this type of drill is designed for increasing speed, jump height, momentum and quick muscle activation.  The quicker the muscles activate the quicker the athlete will be on the track, field or court. Landing smoothly and in control will help prevent injury and allow the athlete to immediately accelerate into their next phase.Repetition – Repetition – Repetition – train those muscles the way you want them to perform.
