Welcome to day 11 of the Bikini Bootcamp Challenge!

Jump Around, Jump Around, Jump Up, Jump Up and Get Down!

Plyometrics also known as jump training is what is used to condition athletes but is also excellent for cardio, strength training and toning. It is one of very few routines that can help you get results quickly.

There are plyometric workouts for all ages and fitness levels.

The ACE (American Council on Exercise) studies have shown that plyometric training can improve:

  • Leg strength
  • Muscle power
  • Balance
  • Agility
  • Bone density
  • Body weight
  • Overall tone

The most common and easiest of plyometric exercises is jump roping.
The following videos are also great for beginners to intermediate fitness levels but can be increased in intensity for a high impact workout.


Have you ever done or do you do plyometrics?

If you do, which exercises do you find particularly challenging?

For the remainder of this bootcamp, I challenge you to add in at least 2 plyometric exercises to your daily workout routine.

**Once you have completed your cardio for the day, click here for the Day 11 Cardio Log, Reminders & Motivation

** Don't forget to update your food journal.

** Remember to fit in an extra 10 - 30 minutes of walking in addition to your daily cardio/workout.

** Drink at least 64 oz of water today!

I haven't done anything like that in years. I worry about hurting my knees.

I did a lot of this when I did insanity. Hardest part was jumping up bringing you knees to your chest.
