Plyometrics for runners will be offered again beginning in November 2018. The OMG Plyometric workout for runners (and volleyball players) is held in the gym in the basement of Northwoods in Shorewood. Plyometrics leg strength training exercises that strengthen joints and prevent running injuries. We start each workout with group exercises followed by a series of hurtle and jump exercises designed for athletes of any ability.
Plyometic workouts are offered for free to members of the Milwaukee Running Group – OMG. You can join the group for $5 per year. It takes about five minutes to signup. There are many other benefits besides plyometric workouts. Click the “Join Us” link on this page to join OMG. https://www.meetup.com/Milwaukee-Running-Group/

Our program allows each person to work to their own ability. You compete only with yourself, and track improvement from week to week. The video below was filmed to show a few of the variations of the exercises we do. This program works for anyone from ages 12 through 80.
