Plyometric exercises are designed to enhance speed and power development. The hop is a basic plyometric exercise that is commonly used to build lower body explosiveness. Stadium steps increase the physical demands of the basic hop in two ways: 1) Plyometric drills performed on an inclined surface require greater force production 2) More oxygen is used to meet the physical demands of the exercise. As a result, there is usually a benefit to the cardiovascular system.

Instructions:

Start at the bottom step, then hop up each step. Hop quickly to minimize the time spent on each step. Try to land on your toes. Be sure to incorporate the use of arm swings to generate momentum with each hop.

You can increase difficulty by hopping faster, hopping two or more steps at a time, hopping with one leg, or hopping with a weighted vest.
