Goalie Training for Leg Power: Depth Jump Plyometrics ADVANCED

I am trusting you on this… please listen to what I am about to tell you.

I know this drill looks pretty straight forward.  And I know that you saw that it is an advanced training technique, so obviously you want to do that right?

You don’t want to waste your time with the fundamental movements.

After all; you want to be an ADVANCED goalie don’t you?

That would be a huge mistake.

If you do not answer “Yes” to all of these questions, then this one is not for you.  Not yet anyway.

Do you…

  • have a solid foundation of strength training using free weights (not machines)
  • know what proper jumping mechanics look like in terms of knee and hip alignment
  • can you correct your own form to restore proper biomechanics
  • have you been using exercises like Cleans or Squat Jumps within the last 2-3 months
  • are you pain free with any squatting, jumping or running activities

If you answered “Yes” to all of those, then you are good to go – – enjoy!

If you answered “No” to any of those questions, then start HERE and build up.  Just don’t try to skip ahead, that will decrease your ability to produce power rather than making you more explosive.

And remember to keep the volume low – only 2-3 sets of 3-4 reps.
