The Next Step in Power Development
Plyometric training involves maximum explosive contractions performed as quickly as possible. Plyometrics is the icing on the cake, so to speak, in terms of speed, jumping and explosiveness.
"I remember the first day we did the plyometric boxes. I said, ‘This is ridiculous – we can’t do this!’ But the second time they got much better, and within two weeks we were really just taking off on them."

Plyometrics Program In-Depth Information
The BFS Plyometric Program consists of five steps: Standing Vertical Jumps, Standing Long Jumps, Plyometric Box Jumping, Jumping on a Box from a Stand, and Plyometric Bounding Drills. All these phases sound like a lot; but if your program is well organized, your athletes can complete it in about 10 minutes.
In addition to this program, there are many additional plyometric exercises that are valuable. One is the BFS Plyo Ramp, a three-sided platform that enables you to dramatically increase lateral speed and ankle stability. It is far superior to a slide board, which places high stresses on the knees.
Regardless of an athlete’s jumping ability, BFS offers plyometric boxes of various sizes to accommodate them, from our lower height "Readiness Boxes" to our standard "Varsity Boxes". Also, our boxes are solid, so that feet safely slide down if the jump is missed – there is no risk of the feet getting trapped as with an open plyometric box.
