Plyometrics or plyometric training is the entire movements (jumps, hops, bounds, and/or skips) that change the center of body mass in a vertical or horizontal direction from one point to another. This definition distinguishes plyometric training from classical explosive or ballistic training. We can therefore state that plyometrics is the most effective way of converting strength into power.
Plyometric exercises develop neuromuscular (nerve-muscle) connections and muscle elasticity, thereby developing strength and speed (power). Plyometric training determines the conditioning of muscles from an active prestressed position for a faster and stronger contraction, also known as the stretch-shortening cycle SSC. Ballistic training involves the trajectory of objects (shot and medicine balls). It is a form oftraining which involves throwing pushing putting weights, and jumping with weights, in order to increase explosive power.
