The result is an effective, safe tool that offers the flexibility whether you want to develop power, strength or get a good high-intensity workout that mixes cardio with strength. Unlike typical strength training exercises that involve long, slow movements designed to increase muscular strength and mass, plyometric training with the help of a soft plyo box consists of quick, explosive movements designed to increase speed and power. This can be achieved through performing multiple exercises that focus on training our bodies and brains to activate more muscle fibers, more quickly, in order to increase the efficiency and speed of our muscle contractions. Doing so will ultimately increase our power. The goal of plyometrics is to maximize muscle contraction, quickly, which essentially means that a byproduct of plyometric training is that you will develop power. Obviously having a high level of physical power is desirable in athletics but in order to increase your power, you need to increase and strengthen the muscle fibers that are responsible for converting strength into speed. Fittingly, these fibers are referred to as fast-twitch fibers, and plyometric training can strengthen them and increase the ratio of fast-twitch fibers to slow-twitch in your body. The stronger the fast-twitch fiber, the faster the muscle contraction—which leads to an increase in power.
