Plyometrics are dynamic movements that demand a lot from your body and so too get you great results. Plyometrics by definition are: exercise involving repeated rapid stretching and contracting of muscles (as by jumping and rebounding) to increase muscle power.

Plyometrics For Beginners
Think about activities or sports where you see women with incredible legs:
- Dancing (Particularly Ballet, Hip Hop, & Modern)
- Track & Field
- Figure Skating
Everyone one of these endeavours requires you to be able to jump and jump high. People who make these activities their life’s work make some form of plyometrics part of their workout.
Heck, I used to workout at a gym where a figure skater who would practice her high triple jumps in the cardio room. Just practicing getting height and having the hang-time to make all her turns. Let me tell you she had the legs and butt to show for all her hard work.
You may not care if you can jump higher or farther than you do today. That’s typical. Most people don’t concern themselves with how strong, fast, or powerful they are but…getting stronger, faster, and more powerful is exactly what you need to do to get that great body and fantastic set of legs you want.
Do you want a dancer’s body? Then you should try to get as strong and fast and powerful as a dancer. Think about that for a moment…those little dancers whose have those enviable bodies are not weak or slow and yet they are so petite and feminine.
Strength and speed won’t make you bulky or manly. Anything butt…
