I'm Renee Byrd with Camp Gladiator in Dallas, Texas, here to talk about thigh and glute plyometrics. Split jumps are a great plyometric exercise for your glutes and thighs so here's a demonstration of the proper form and technique. Standing with your feet shoulder width apart, you're going to go ahead and get into that lunge position. Very important guys your feet are more like railroad tracks, not like a tightrope, okay? So you don't have one foot in front of the other. Standing nice and tall with your core nice and tight guys, you're just going to jump and switch legs and you're going to do as many as you can do. When using the plyometric exercises guys, just like the split jump your heart rate is going to get up, it's going to be a great workout just make sure that you use proper form and technique. Another great exercise is the squat jump. When performing the squat jump you have to be very careful not have your knees come forward. This is a really bad idea for your knees guys, what you want to make sure is that your heels are driven down, your toes are kind of up, almost like they are waving at the person in front of you and you're going to use your arms for momentum. The key here is to put in as much effort to this exercise as you possibly can. One of my favorite favorite plyometric exercises is called an under over. The key here guys is to make sure you work both sides guys so you're going to use one side of your leg equally to the same amount of time that you spend on the other. The biggest key here is to make sure you use very explosive movements. Again, I'm Renee Byrd with Camp Gladiator, and we just talked about thigh and glute plyometrics.
