Kangoo Power
Kangoo Power is an explosive, highly motivating program, specifically designed to challenge the whole body by building muscular strength and cardio-respiratory endurance simultaneously. Each movement is designed to focus on core stability, ensuring a balanced workout that will challenge even the fittest. Basic moves are easy to follow and can be performed with growing complexity and intensity, as you progress. This program suits a broad range of class attendees regardless of fitness level, It is also great for athletes, due to its use of plyometric explosive techniques, using Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes to maximize effort, while preventing damaging impact to the joints.


+ What is plyometric training?

Kangoo Power Program utilizes basic leg movements executed with compression, followed immediately by propulsion taught to music. When compression is executed just prior to propulsion, it is called plyometric. Plyometric activity enables a muscle to reach maximum force in the shortest possible time. Plyometric training produces fast powerful movements, enhancing the neuromuscular system.

Plyometric movements involve 3 phases.

The pre-stretch: This is the eccentric phase of the movement. The muscle is lengthened just prior to execution, thus storing elastic energy. The greater the stretch prior to contraction, the greater the load the muscle can lift (think about a rubber band).

The amortization phase: This is the brief period between the end of the pre-stretch and the beginning of the concentric contraction. The shorter this phase is, the more powerful the subsequent muscle contraction will be.

The contraction: This is the final phase, when the stored elastic energy is released.

This sequence of movements is referred to as the “stretch-shortening cycle”. It utilizes stretch reflex, one of the quickest reflexes of the human body.

Under normal circumstances and in order to be effective, plyometric training must contain numerous contractions that require maximal effort. This can lead to overtraining. Because Kangoo Jumps reduce up to 80% of the shock of impact, one can safely train more often with less chance of injury.
