Are You Maximizing Your Explosive Power?

A plyometric motion is defined as a quick, explosive eccentric and concentric contraction of a given muscle. For example, when an athlete jumps, the plyometric motion includes an eccentric (stretching) contraction of the athletes gastrocnemius (calf), a quick amortization phase (time of stretch to concentric contraction), and a rapid concentric contraction. The time it takes to go through this entire stretch shortening cycle, is called ground contact time.
