Ask the Expert: Mike Boyle


Mike Boyle"Plyometric training is the use of jumps, hops and throws to train for power. In simple terms, lifting weights trains the muscles while plyometrics trains the nervous system. Plyo box jumps, plyometric hurdle jumps and medicine ball throws are used to develop the efficiency of the nervous system. Plyometrics have been described as 'the link between strength and speed."
