A key component of nervous system training at P3 is the use of high-intensity movements. However, while other training facilities often specialize in plyometrics, explosive core training, or Olympic lifting, P3 employs all three. But P3′s secret is how they are combined with other ballistic methods, to produce greater stimulus for nervous system adaptation. Every aspect of the P3 environment has been designed with nervous system training in mind. For example, the floor consists of a high density “Mondo” style rubber with two layers of wood sub-floor. This produces optimal rebound and absorption qualities for high impact loading anywhere in the facility.
When doing high-force plyometrics, P3 Athletes use large (up to 48″) boxes that require maximal ground force production, while focusing on correct ground contact to avoid injury. While most current training methods to date have only focused on the slow, stable aspects of core training, P3 also employs explosive rotational movements that often involve heavier medicine ball throws.
