Chapter 16 Quiz CSCS Plyometric Training

Plyometric training is a field of physical training that deals with exercises which force muscles to exert maximum force during short intervals of time, allowing your muscles to increase in power. This is also often referred to as “jump training” as jumping is a major component. What do you know about it?


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    Plyometric training involves using a prestretch and a counter-movement, and involves the _________________.

  • 4. 
    The __________________ involves a change in the force-velocity characteristics of the muscle's contractile components caused by stretch
