This exercise is great for early stages when first starting to implement a plyometric program with an athlete. It also serves as a good late stage rehabilitation exercise for athletes (especially ACL rehab). For more advanced athletes, this can be a good alternative to high impact plyometric training at certain periods during their training programs.
