Plyometric Stair Climbing Workouts: Power Development
To improve lower body power, plyometrics can be used in stair workouts. To do this you can use single, double, and triple hops with either both or one leg at a time. You can use side hops, side-to-side hops, transverse hops and so on. You can even use eccentric hops.
The key to any plyometric programme is to perform the jumps with excellent form, quickness and explosiveness. Remember, you are training yourself to exert force as fast as possible and to improve your power output. Although plyometrics can (and will) improve your conditioning, its primary purpose is to improve your power.
