Plyametrics

What are plyametrics, where can I find out more about them. How do you do some of the basic exercises, and what are they good for? Can I increase the size of my neck and its strength by holding it and moving my head back and forth.

Plyometrics are a type of activity that can increase explosiveness. As far as I know, plyometrics won't build muscle (at least not big muscle). I don't know of any good sites but I'm sure others can give their input on that.

Plyometrics as stated 'teach' the muscle and body explosive power. It helps a lot on anything that requires power, such as verticle jump, or exploding off the line and even punching etc.

A quick google search will turn up some results.

there are different plyometric exercises that u can do which helps with ur vert jump and explosiveness, most of the exercises involves a lot of jumping, i used to do them for basketball to increase my vert for rebounds etc.... but squats, deadlifts etc would be bettr for explosiveness IMHO

they'll help with your explosiveness. everyone should be doing some type of plyometric exercise in their workout routine.

1.The way that I recall,there were trainers in the former Soviet Union who were expert in plyomterics.Some of these former Spetznaz instructors are teaching in the U.S. and Canada now.Some of them have schools, others have written books and put out DVD's and videos. I do recall seeing a couple of them and they seemed pretty good. You might want to search for them.
2.About your neck: I believe that there is a weight training harness that you attach to your head and you weight train your neck with that.Also neck bridges with build it up too.
Hope this helps. Ferdelance
