CSM Aquatic Programming Spotlight: Power, Speed and Agility With Pool Plyometrics


Aquatic plyometric training provides a lower impact option during rehabilitation and as part of a cross training conditioning program to improve power, speed, agility and strength. When exercising in the water, buoyancy provides support, reducing weight bearing forces while viscosity provides drag and resistance to increase muscle strength. Research has shown aquatic plyometrics to be an effective tool in improving jump performance and lower extremity explosive strength.

This presentation includes current research, along with practical applications for implementing an aquatic exercise program to improve agility, speed, and power for your athletes.
