Ballistic training is a form of exercise used to promote dynamic movement; it is usually conditioning through explosive exercises such as Olympic lifts, weighted jumps, plyometrics, resisted sprints and ball throws.

If you are serious about mantaining your health and fitness, lockdowns are an inconvenience not an excuse to give up!
