Thread: Optimal volume of plyos

  1. #1

    Optimal volume of plyos

    I typically use double leg bounds, bounding, tuck jumps, and single leg bounds after speed work. But whatever exercises I use, volume is only 5-20 contacts.

    What do you guys think is optimal? If doing 300-350m of speed, and then doing heavy squats after?

    I wouldn't introduce them in-season.

    The plyos you describe that you are doing sound good.

    Is that 5-20 contacts per exercise? How many total contacts per session?

    When I was in Toronto training with Charlie, at dinner one night I asked Charlie roughly how much plyo volume would be appropriate. Ange responded, "How much energy do you have left after the speed work?" It was such an obvious answer when she said it. If 5-20 feels right for you, then stick with it. Less is more.

    The volume that you don't get injured doing!

    I agree with topcat

    I just have my athletes do very low volume, high quality work. I would rather my guys do 3x4 to a 36" box than do multiple foot contacts in lower output range. If the boys look a little shot, I may skip them entirely for the workout.

    Outside of depth jumps, its hard to believe the 5 total contacts in a session will do much.
