Make Time for This Simple Plyo Routine Each Week

Plyo has the potential to improve your overall strength and running economy.

For access to all of our training, gear, and race coverage, plus exclusive training plans, FinisherPix photos, event discounts, and GPS apps, sign up for Outside+.

Research has shown that runners who employ plyometrics in their training perform better in time trials on less mileage than runners who only run. So why not make time for a simple plyo routine each week? Plyo has the potential to improve your overall strength and running economy by training efficient muscle recruitment for the running motion.

Start with a 5- to 10-minute warm-up before completing this plyometric workout. Try incorporating it into your training twice each week for starters.
