One of the most popular and effective plyometric tools that Legend Fitness offers are the Performance Plyo Cushions.
HOW ARE THEY MADE?
First, they are constructed from a very firm, dense foam. Try to pillow fight with these and you'll leave a mark. After all, full grown men will be jumping on them.
Second, they come as three pieces of varying heights, so that they can be mixed and matched to provide you with seven height options for your exercises, from 6 to 42 inches. Enormous Velcro tabs around the edges secure the segments to one another.
Lastly, the skins on these are crafted from a heavy duty tarp material that can withstand the repeated beatings of linebacker bunny hops.
WHY CUSHIONS INSTEAD OF BOXES?
While they may not necessarily be soft, they do "give" more than welded steel plyo boxes, causing the user to make minute adjustments with their ankles and knees, strengthening connective tissue along the way and requiring greater participation from stabilization muscles.
The "give" of the plyo cushion results in a low impact exercise, especially when leaping from one plyo segment to another.
Since they aren't made from shin scraping steel, the user is encouraged to dig deeper and attempt higher jumps, resulting in greater gains.
The stiff foam provides a rebound effect for non-bouncing D-balls up to 100 pounds in weight.
WHY ARE THEY ROUND?
In direct contrast to many competitors, our cushions aren't square. That's because there isn't a stability compromise if you were to land on the edge. Put all of your weight on the corner of a foam square, and you'll risk doing the Humpty onto your head.
