Postpartum Workout – Plyometric Box – 20 minutes

15 Jan

PIC- Exercises Advert(1)

 

The plyometric box (plyo box) is a great piece of equipment.  It’s intended use is for plyometric exercises.  Plyometric exercises or plyometrics uses explosive movements such as jumping  intended to increase speed, agility, and power.  In addition to improving muscle tone and the cardiovascular system, plyometrics also has shown to improve bone density. In my workout here, I am using the plyo box to do high stepping exercises, upper body exercises, and core exercises.  I am not ready to do my full plyometric routine yet as I stopped doing plyometrics when I was pregnant. I am working my way back into it.  Therefore, in this video you will see I am doing minimal jumping/plyometric exercises.

*Please be advised that plyometric exercises such as box jumping is advanced.  Do not attempt box jumps without supervision and instruction by a certified instructor.  If these movements are preformed incorrectly, it WILL cause injury.
