It’s Workout Wednesday so our favorite personal trainer, Daniel Tague, is in studio with us. Today we talk specifically about plyometrics. If you’ve never heard of that term before, plyometrics, also known as jump training or plyos, are exercises in which muscles exert maximum force in short intervals of time, with the goal of increasing power.
