Three methods to gain greater explosiveness 💣
Here are three methods that will help you gain that much-needed explosive spark in the mountains.
In addition to continuous running, there is another way to train your endurance, a more anaerobic type of training known as split sessions, that is, spreading the training effort over several parts. This allows us a greater effort in each part of the session, and extra explosiveness for our muscles.
Plyometric training is essential for mountain runners. The objective is to extrapolate some of the gestures we do in the mountains, such as jumps, landings or turns, and train them individually and externally in specific sessions. With plyometrics we can improve the strength of the lower part of the body, since the movements of the exercises are fast and powerful, which gives us greater strength and speed.
