Today’s Fat Burning Plyo workout is no joke – you know the drill: give your 100% during the short bursts of high intensity plyo moves while focusing on proper form, first & foremost! For this particular workout, you should put extra emphasis on completing a good, full body warm-up before proceeding to the actual workout. Making sure that your entire body & joints are ready for plyo action!
Since we will be jumpin’ all around the place, keep in mind that your landings should remain gentle and soft.
* This workout might not be suitable for beginners or people who haven’t tried plyometrics in the past, if this is the case for you, you can modify these exercises with variations best fitted to your fitness level (see suggestions provided next to each exercise demo below).
