If you are someone who keeps looking for ways to ramp up your workouts, this is for you. Fitness trainer Yasmin Karachiwala shared a new Instagram video where she guides her followers on functional and plyometric workouts.

In the caption, Yasmin asked everyone, "Are you ready for today's functional and plyometric workout?"

Plyometric workouts: Try these exercises to build muscle strength

Yasmin, further, explained in the caption, "This workout uses maximum power to strengthen your muscles. The moves are quick and explosive, so prepare to use a lot more energy than you do in a typical strength training session."

She added that the primary focus of plyometric training, however, was to expand and contract muscles as quickly as possible, with the main benefits of doing this being greater flexibility and the ability to move the muscles more rapidly.

For today, she wrote, the plyometric exercise is 'Squat Jacks'. "You need to repeat it after every strength workout. She told everyone to follow the format below and repeat all the exercises for 3 rounds."

This is the format Yasmin suggested:

  • Db squat + A Side Kick (15 Reps)
  • Squat Jacks (20 Reps)
  • Push-up to Pike (10 Reps)
  • Squat Jacks (20 Reps)
  • DB Bentover Y & T (10 Reps)
  • Squat Jacks (20 Reps)
  • Elbow Plank Hip Dip (15 Reps)
  • Squat Jacks (20 Reps)
