Plyometric training refers to explosive exercise utilising powerful muscular contractions. The Pilates method offers a unique opportunity to train and challenge plyometric ability utilising the Jumpboard. In this workshop we will look at the mechanics of jumping as a plyometric activity and the integration of traditional and evolved Pilates Jumpboard exercises for plyometric training. It will also explore the use of the Jumpboard for plyometric conditioning of other joints and as an overall training concept that is essential for strength, resilience, effective joint stabilisation, and power.
Effective preparation underpins the whole client program. The ‘Warm Up’ section (before The Hundred) of any program provides the opportunity to make or break the session. It is here that we can strategically set up muscle patterns, postural address, and specific focus that allow the program to build from an effective starting point. This preparation section can then be honed for client home practice and progression. In this workshop explore and experience warm up sequences based on strategic movement pattern and postural address, and take away strategies for maximising the preparation section of any workout within appropriate time frames and with reasoning for different client types.
