but I know nothing about them
Do I do them in addition to my regular work out or should I start a bulk/cut/plyometric cycle?
If I do them in addition to my regular work out will it hurt my recovery time?
I already work out for an hour a day 3 days a week (full body, I know most people don't do that but it's what works for me). I always thought an hour a day is the most a person should do without juicing so does this mean I will have spend less time lifting in order to add this?
I know this makes me sound like such a newbie but I've been working out for almost 4 years on and off. Please help
Check out Blitzforce's Journal or send him a PM. He does more plyos than anyone else on this site.

what are your goals with plyometrics? what are you hoping to achieve?
like, is this for sports or something?
no, not for a sport really. I just am interested in improving my leap.

Unless you want to do them for sports to specifically improve your performance it's pointless in my opinion. Plyo's are really demanding on the body of you do them hardcore to get an insane vert. So why let all that cut into your gains with the iron? What's more important to you? Jumping high or gaining muscle?
It's like I'm a juicer... but I'm not.
Well, the thing is I'm 21 and, as you can tell by my name, seriously interested in wrestling. I'm 200 pounds but only about 5'9" and if I ever make it to 230 or so I was hoping to go to a wrestling school. Since I'd be lacking in size compared to some of the guys (who get up to over 7 feet) a nice leap would help me a lot.
So yeah, it's not really for a sport....
