Our Plyo Press Machine (PPM) improves leg strength and explosive power. Its unique design allows athletes to take explosive power training to a higher level. The footplate angle puts the athlete in an athletic position to produce force through the balls of his/her feet – not the heels like a standard squat exercise. You compete in an athletic position; you need to train in those positions. The sled supports the low back and reinforces proper mechanics when lifting heavy weights or doing explosive jumps. Using an exclusive weight-loading pattern, the PPM provides variable resistance that optimizes the weight load based on how the body works. Versus squats and hip sleds, the PPM is a safer and more effective way to train lower body explosive strength and power.
