Plyometrics Mat

plyomatPlyometrics Mat - Hands down, one of the most effective forms of exercising is the use of plyometric movements, such as explosive pushups, alternating jumping lunges, and the likes.  Plyometrics help raise your explosiveness, causes more oxygen to be used which turns into more calories burned, more weight loss, and stronger & leaner muscles.  For example, do a set of 10 pushups from the floor.  Now, do those same 10 pushups but explosively…….the difference is like night and day!  You’ll feel your muscles working that much harder and your body become much more conditioned from the explosive versions.

Also, that’s why you see almost every major sports athlete concentrate on explosive type of movements…..which leads to their excellent, defined, well developed bodies.

The problem with plyometrics, however, is that they can become hard on the joints from some of the impact.  That’s where this plyometrics mat comes in to play.
