Increasing plyometric load

In this last peaking phase before Bislett I have very good experience with tapering the jumping expercises also. So I am stretching myself, going very few reps but high and long. Shortest possible ground contact and exercises that are matching the…

running stride as much as possible. This small stuff gives you the little extra in the stride, especially when you only use it for “supercompensation” right before important meets. You get a fast adaption and hit the platue just as you are about to compete.

I have done this alot in my earlier years and picked it up again in 2001 – together with Henrik. And had very good experiences with it. So I am sticking to that this year also.

Time for a very, very easy longer run now, to loosen up the muscles after this mornings jumps.
