If you are a serious athlete looking to add to your level of athletic performance then you need to tune in. Athletic performance is something of a unique trait when talking about the ability of the human body as it applies to competing in sports. Athletic performance comes in varying degrees depending on the individual and his or her physical condition, genetics, and inner drive. Knowing this though it is true that the human body can be OPTIMALLY built to be at it’s best. Check out the following 2 exercises that you can combine in your personal program to optimally build your own ability!

1. Power Cleans: This is a tremendous olympic style lift that should be included in every athletic based program. The power clean is a great lift with the dynamic to increase one’s core power, leg power, and even upper-body strength all within a single repetition. There are many variations of cleans, but the power clean is definitely on top of the lifting food chain because of the amount of movement required to pull the barbell and weights from the floor up to your chest. There is also a great conditioning effect that comes with executing this lift.

2. Plyometric Box Jumps: Plyometric box jumps are a great way to add some serious explosive power to your core and leg strength. Within the human dynamic your center of gravity starts at your core. This is why the power cleans are so effective for building your power center and these plyometric box jumps are no different. The real advanced tactic would be to combine the power cleans and plyometric box jumps. This is a sure way for the athlete to optimally develop athletic performance and a powerful dynamic of strength.
