An example is mini-hops in and out of an agility ladder. These types of jumps are considered lower intensity plyometrics compared to a higher obstacle such as hurdle jumps. Horizontal distance traveled during a jump or hop is another important intensity measurement. Short horizontal distances are considered low intensity plyometrics such as continuous short distance rudimentary horizontal mini-broad jumps.
Horizontal broad jumps with longer distances of 3-10 feet would be considered high intensity.
High intensity plyometrics such as huddle jumps, box jumps or long broad jumps, should limit workout contacts to 20-40 per session depending on the athletes age, level, body weight, and training history. Lower intensity plyometrics contacts volumes should be in the range 60-120 contacts and progress from beginners to more advanced. If both, low and high intensity contacts are utilized in the same sessions then performing 50% of each of the appropriate volumes for the athlete would be appropriate.
