DID YOU KNOW?
Lindsey Van and Sarah Hendrickson made history in Sochi 2014 by competing in the debut of women’s ski jumping at the Olympic Games. Even though women had been participating in the sport for over 100 years, they were barred from competing at the Olympics. Van and Hendrickson led the international fight to get their sport in the Games. They star in the 2012 award-winning documentary, Ready to Fly, which can be viewed on iTunes.
Van is now retired and has been coaching the next generation of women ski jumpers. Hendrickson, a Red Bull-sponsored athlete, is training for the 2018 Winter Games in PyeongChang.
WHAT IS PLYOMETRICS?
Plyometrics, also known as "jump training" or "plyos", are exercises in which muscles exert maximum force in short intervals of time, with the goal of increasing power (speed-strength). Plyos provide a great foundation for soccer training.
