are not inherently dangerous, but the highly focused and intense movements used in repetition increase the potential level of stress on joints and musculo-tendonous units. Therefore, safety precautions are strong prerequisites to this particular method of exercise. Low-intensity variations of
are frequently utilized in various stages of injury rehabilitation, indicating that the application of proper technique and appropriate safety precautions can make
safe and effective for many people.
Stolhanske was also in the
DVD that was part of the P90X program that fitness expert Tony Horton created.
exercises such as squat jumps and power skipping should not be implemented until the ankle has regained full agility.
The specified minimum strength requirement varies depending on where the information is sourced and the intensity of the
being performed. Chu (1998) recommends that a participant be able to perform 50 repetitions of the squat exercise at 60% of his or her body weight before doing
. Core (abdomen) strength is also important.
includes explosive powerful training exercises that are trained to activate the quick response and elastic properties of the major muscles in the body. It was initially made famous by Soviet Olympians in the 1970s, providing the core element in the strength programs of elite sporting athletes worldwide. Sports using
include basketball, tennis and volleyball as well as the various codes of football.
From its beginnings in the early 1980s, the term
gained greater popularity and is now well established. When Fred Wilt learned of the work being done by Michael Yessis in the field of Russian training methods, they quickly teamed up to help disseminate information on
The term "
" was coined by Fred Wilt after watching Soviet athletes prepare for their events in track and field; he felt this was a key to their success. He began a collaboration with Soviet (Russian) trainer Michael Yessis to promote
(the shock method) was created by Yuri Verkhoshansky in the late 1960s, early 1970s. Since then, the shock method of
is still being practiced for improvement of athletic performance by what appears to be a relatively limited number of athletes. These athletes still do depth jumps, the key exercise in the shock method, according to the guidelines established by Verkhoshansky.
Rather than using the term
to indicate exercises utilizing the shock method, it may be preferable to use the term explosive or true
which can be considered the same as the
originally created by Verkhoshansky. The shock method that he created was the result of studying the actions that occur in running and jumping. He found that the landings and takeoffs in these two skills involved high ground reaction forces that were executed in an extremely quick and explosive manner. For example, time of execution of the landing and takeoff in jumping was close to 0.20 second and in sprinting it was approximately 0.10 second.
Complex training integrates strength training,
, and sometimes sport-specific movement. It consists of an intense strength exercise followed by a plyometric exercise.
with strength training, there is an added benefit of improving rate of force, the speed with which force is achieved in movement.
There are many methods of strength training. Examples include weight training, circuit training, isometric exercise, gymnastics,
, Parkour, yoga, Pilates, Super Slow.
When athletes who have been doing
without regard to time of execution first attempt to execute explosive
, they often fail because the time of execution is too long. This occurs quite often in the depth jump. The athlete usually sinks (drops) too low which takes too long to make the transition from the eccentric to the concentric contraction. As a result, the exercise becomes a jump-strength exercise and not a true plyometric one.
, also known as "jump training" or "plyos", are exercises in which muscles exert maximum force in short intervals of time, with the goal of increasing power (speed-strength). This training focuses on learning to move from a muscle extension to a contraction in a rapid or "explosive" manner, such as in specialized repeated jumping.
are primarily used by athletes, especially martial artists, sprinters and high jumpers, to improve performance, and are used in the fitness field to a much lesser degree.
In collaboration with Yessis who visited and worked with Verkhoshansky in the former Soviet Union the early 1980s, the term
and how it is used (practiced) was gradually disseminated in the US. Yessis brought this information on
back to the US and in the following years was able to create even more ways of using this method to train and improve explosive power.
Due to the wide use and appeal of the term
, the true meaning of
as developed by Verkhoshansky has for the most part been forgotten. Verkhoshansky was well known and respected worldwide in both the scientific and in the coaching arenas. He was relatively unknown in the United States except for some of his articles that were translated and published in the "Soviet Sports Review", later called the "Fitness and Sports Review International."
In December 2013, P90X3 was released and featured 30 minute workouts as opposed to hour-long ones. P90X3 includes 16 routines, and includes yoga, mixed martial arts, Pilates, and
with upper and lower body workouts.
On March 22, Koger endured a torn achilles tendon while doing

Various exercises can be used to increase an athlete's vertical jumping height. One category of such exercises—
—employs repetition of discrete jumping-related movements to increase speed, agility, and power.
