Combining weight training with plyometrics is something you know I’m fond of. Here’s something that makes it tricky… challenging weight. A goal in weighted workouts is to progress with each workout. That progress can be to ability to do more reps, take shorter rests, lift heavier weight, etc.
On leg day, I often challenge myself with increasing weight. When doing so, it’s important to take adequate rest to allow the body to recover. If you don’t do that, you can compromise strength. There’s a little trial and error required in taking long enough rests to recover fully without taking too long that you get out of the zone.
With that said, I’ve been focusing on lifting heavier but I also love including plyometrics, so I’ve started doing them in between movements instead of in between sets like in today’s workout!

My Training Recommendation: omit today’s blog workout and complete the Glute Guide workout instead
- Complete 3 sets of each exercise before moving onto the next
- In between each movement (NOT in between each set), complete 1 set of 20 reps of pop squats
- Intensity Increase Option: complete 2 sets of 20 reps of pop squats
