3 tips for the perfect pogo

Bounce! Pogo jumps are one of our favourite plyometric exercises for runners to improve stiffness in the Achilles tendon, & strengthen the calf 💪 Here are our 3 tips to perfect pogos.

  1. As you jump in the air, point your toes up towards your head to pre-stretch the calf & Achilles, & just before you land point them down

  2. Keep your ankles & knees stiff on landing

  3. Ensure your contact with the ground is nice & quick, as you spring back up into the air as high as you can

🙋🏼‍♀️How many reps?

🔹Beginner: 2–4 x 6 repetitions (2min recovery)

🔸Intermediate/advanced: 3–5 x 6–8 repetitions (2min recovery)
