    Plyos are good for start speed, not for strength as such. They are also potentially very dangerous, so be careful.

      Plyos

      Plyometrics are dangerous if not done properly and if you didnt warm-up and stretch...

      also you can get ankle injuries if you do it on a hard surface...

        A good exercise is 'Pistols', it's like a one legged squat using your body weight and weights if you’re strong enough. Requires considerable flexibility and needs the practitioner to use a lot of muscles, postural and not, thus developing not isolated strength confined to your thy or what have you, but power that comes from various muscles and muscle groups working together, giving you good endurance and strength for explosive and controlled force. Though if you do it wrong, you can easily injure your knees.

          I read an article in a very "hard-core" muscle/lifting mag extolling the virtues, of all things, the inner thigh machine! A device that women, not men, tend to use.
          I used that machine for a long time, to develop power for triangle chokes and leg scissors chokes. It was interesting to see an old-tyme free weight guy recommend what many call a "broads' machine."

            Try to do box jump. Or weighted box jump!

                Yeah, besides leg strength isn't that important anyways, at least not for self defense.

                  I love the squat jump, box jump and lunges exercises. These exercises helps me to develop my lower body muscles and helps me improve the muscle fiber I have. It helped me to jump higher, develop my vertical leap, as well as improves my agility and balance.
