Kapawe’no First Nation – At Kapawe’no Nêhiyawak School we have the lab up and running, each student has been introduced to the training and the results will be fourth coming in the next couple of years as we progress as a program.
Academy athletes and students during gym period was excited to test themselves with cutting edge training techniques that has been used by many Olympic athletes in the preparation for competition.
Why Is Plyometric Important Part of training?
Speed, power, agility and endurance.
A lightening quick connection between the stretch and the reflex requires considerable neutral energy through the central nervous system (i.e. your intent to move quickly) , and therefore turn on (recruit) fast twitch muscles fibers.
Basically, when performing plyometric this way, you are ‘teaching’ your body to release more ‘athletic’ horsepower through faster firing muscles.
