The stretch-shortening cycle is a combination of eccentric-concentric contractions which functions by integration of the golgi tendon organ (GTO) and the muscle spindle. There are three phases in a plyometric sequence: the eccentric phase, or landing phase; the amortization phase, or transition phase; and the concentric phase, or take-off phase.
