Weekly Training Tip #21 - Pogo Jumps

Targeted Muscles: Soleus, Tibialis Anterior, Gastrocnemius.

Pogo jumps are a great exercise to train and improve ground contact time. Lower Ground contact time has been shown through research to be correlated with better sprint performance. The lower ground contact time improves the efficiency of the foot strike and reduces braking forces experienced during high speed running. They are also a great entry-level, plyometric exercise to prep the lower leg musculature for more advanced exercises with a larger impact momentum.
