So I've always wanted to do plyometrics, but as I read about them I realized that I first needed to get my strength up to par to fully reap the benefits. So, after 2 ABBH cycles, 1 ABBH II, a month of Renaissance Body Development, 1 Fat to Fire workout, 1 Strength Focused Mesocycle and 1 Nitro Squat Cycle... I finally got my ATG squat to 300 for reps (from 200), deadlift to 2xbw (I've never really come closed to maxing out... the closest would be my grip failing when repping out), etc. at a bodyweight of 170 (sh Proffesor X).
I train mainly for performance (I play soccer and tennis), so strength is secondary. I'm currently on day 17 of ABBH (again, I love this program), and I was wondering if it would be ok to begin to include some plyometrics in my workouts or off days.
I've already begun learning then o-lift variations (on my own, I have no access to a coach, so I've watched dozens of videos/articles, and taken it very slowly), and I routinely do hang power cleans and push jerks, and after a couple of months of overhead squats, I'm beginning to do hang power snatches.
So, after I'm done with ABBH (or even during the last week), would it be allright to begin doing plyometrics? My main focus is explosive speed, lateral speed/jump (I'm a golie in soccer), and of course vertical jump. I was thinking of doing CT's vertical leap program, but I decided against it since I'm in the middle of tennis season and it's kind of limiting in terms of goals (I don't want to focus solely on my vertical leap for 6 weeks during tennis season). However, does the program derive general benefits? If so, then I guess I should just do CT's program when I'm done with ABBH.
