Training Tip of the Week: Insanity Plyo Lunges

For this week’s Training Tip of the Week I’ll talk about another move within the Insanity Workout: Plyometric Lunges!  As I discuss in the video, you don’t have to make this move a plyometric movement – it can be modified working the core and legs just the same!

 

With any movement that has the word PLYO meaning PLYOMETRIC {exercising the muscles to exert maximum force in short intervals of time, with the goal of increasing both speed and power} before it or within the movement’s range of movement, there are a few things to keep in mind:

 

* You DON’T have to jump unless you feel fit to do so and form can back that up

 

* Modifications don’t mean you’re not working as hard, it means you’re using high intensity still with safer form until progression can be made

 

* Always start with a LOADED motion, meaning you set the movement. Don’t just start jumping without thinking about how you’ll land once you’re coming down from the jump.

Do you enjoy the burn of lunges no matter the modification?

What other movements would you like to see featured or have questions about that you’ve seen in Insanity?
