The Plyometric Workout That Turns You Into an Explosive Powerhouse

Welcome to the wonderful world of plyometrics. If you haven't been here before, here's the scoop: this high-intensity workout is filled with exercises that trigger muscles to exert maximum force in short spans of time. What does that mean for you? Lots of fat burned, faster speeds, and more strength—all without spending hours in the gym. Though it might sound intimidating, a plyometric-based workout will push you to your limits in a healthy way. Here, you'll do everything from planks and 180-jump squats to lunges and diagonal burpees (yeah, we went there). So get ready for a sweaty—but rewarding!—challenge that will totally toast your legs... and core and upper body, too. (Want to literally step it up? Just add a plyo box to your workout for a next-level burn.)
 
How it works: Do each warm-up exercise for 30 seconds. Then do each plyometric exercise for 60 seconds. Cool down with 30 seconds each of static and dynamic stretches.
