Have you struggled returning your athletes to peak performance levels after injury? Utilising plyometric training options in a ‘return to play’ or ‘return to performance’ program allows your athletes to reach more dynamic exposures through jump and landing platforms.
In this episode, Coach Wilmot demonstrates the difference in an athlete that is ready for play but may not be ready to reach their maximum potential. Lachlan introduces the stretch shortening cycle to prepare the body for consecutive progressions. Through a series of hurdle jumps, Maddy demonstrates the body positioning required for cyclical movement and the re-introduction of the stretch shortening cycle for an athlete.
