  1. What is another term for plyometrics?
    stretch-shortening drills
  2. What is plyometrics?
    rapid loading of a muscle, stressing the spring-like function of a muscle

    high intensity, high velocity exercises that work on developing power and coordination
  3. What occurs during plyo to help allow a more powerful contraction?
    rapid lengthening just before a rapid shortening
  4. What 4 m. functions are involved with the biomechanics of plyo?
    • motors (concentric)
    • stabilizers (isometric)
    • shock absorbers (eccentric)
    • springs (eccentric)
  5. What is the regulation of a stretch?
    shock absorbers
  6. What is a regulation of a stretch prior to shortening?
    springs

    eccentric -> concentric
  7. What type of exercises are plyometrics?
    isotonic combining speed, strength, and functional activities...eccentric to concentric
  8. What must a patient have before allowing them to perform plyometric exercises?
    strength and ROM back, adequate endurance, flexibility
