Are plyometrics good or bad for your joints?

Just wanted to ask if anyone knows what kind of long term effects plyometric exercises can have on your joints? Will they become damaged over time, or will they be ok? Does anyone know?

I’d say as long as you leave enough time for your body to recover between sessions, and you warm up / cool down well, your joints should be fine. A good diet with enough protein, carbs, etc is of course also essential.

Where you might want to be careful is if you are using special plyometrics soles or shoes. For some training with these can be too intensive. Definitely a piece of equipment that only experts should use.
