I am still working on full rehabing my heel and ankle from an injury last summer. It is going well so far but I have been giving thought to rope skipping to strengthen my ankles and heel a little more. Would skipping rope be considered plyometric?
It would be just straight double foot lands, no single foot hopping etc.
If I did this on my supp weight day would be there any negative CNS affects etc? I would do 3-4 sets with a minute at a time skipping.
Plyometrics are SSCs…elastic responses happen during walking so what I think is that there is a spectrum of tissue responses from a light stretch all the way to a demanding CNS response. I think a few minutes is fine but don’t do a rocky workout of a half hour with high knees.
