When I have been researching about plyometric training I have seen this in Explosive Plyometric(Michael Yessis).
As a result, the plyometric training most often seen in the United States is, in reality, jump training; not the original method as proposed by Dr. Verkhoshansky. Understand that jump training is a separate type of training. It is differentiated from plyornetric training mainly by the amount of time taken to execute the transition from the stretch to the contraction. For example, explosive plyornetric exercises involve jumps, but all jumps are not plyometric! This misunderstanding came about because the authors of some of the more popular plyornetric books and articles did not understand the difference between jump and plyometric exercises. This is why, since plyornetrics was first described by these early authors, who appeared to be more interested in exploiting the concept of plyometrics, jumps and plyometrics soon became synonymous. Even today, just about any article you read calls all different types of jumps plyornetrics. As brought out earlier, jump training and plyometric training are two distinct and separate entities. This 1s why Dr. Yuri Verkhoshansky, known as the father of plyometrics, refuses to accept this title. In my discussions with him, he says that what we call plyornetrics “is not the training that I created and have athletes use”. In true (explosive) plyornetrics the exercise must be executed as quickly as possible — in 0.15 to 0.2 seconds. Jump training takes longer to execute, much longer in most cases. However, jump training is valuable and should be used in the training of athletes, especially in the early years and in preparation for explosive plyometrics.
I can’t understand difference as quite.
Do box jumps mean jumping training and depth jumps mean plyometrics?
Because when we doing box jumps we are jumping over box but It’s not about with time(May we spend more time than 0.15-0.20). But when we do depth jumps, after we dropped we need to jump immediately(0.15-0.20).
Is this true perspective?
EDIT: Which training we need to do(sprinting)? Jump or plyometrics? Or both? If my perspective true the answer must be plyometrics
