Plyometrics is an anaerobic type of exercise, which means that it is non-oxygen fueled. It uses adenosine triphosphate and creatine phosphate (ATP/CP) for its energy source, which is stored in muscle tissue. When this ATP/CP is depleted, muscles draw glucose, which is stored in liver. This glucose converts back into ATP/CP in muscle. Because of anaerobic nature of Plyometrics, you should include pre-workout and post-workout nutrition. Both should include complex and simple carbohydrates. Also a high-grade protein is needed for fueling and replenishing.
