The slight cushioning of the plyometric rubber flooring provides just the right mix of cushion and solid footing to allow for the sudden movements that occur in various types of exercising, including plyometrics.
The idea of using plyometric exercise has grown in popularity quite a bit in recent years. Plyometrics primarily aim to give athletes more explosive power in their muscles. Because of the tough jumps and sudden movements involved in plyometrics, injuries are a possibility. The cushioned surface in the plyometric mat works well to reduce the chances of these injuries. Some common types of movements that you'll find with plyometrics include the following.
Box Jumping: Front and lateral box jumping, where the athlete repeatedly jumps from the ground onto an elevated surface, such as the top of a box, and back down to the ground, benefits greatly from 1/2 rubber flooring, where the cushioning makes the landing softer and easier on the knee joints and ankles.
Lateral Jumping: Plyometrics athletes repeatedly will jump back and forth over an object a few inches off the ground or over a line on the floor. These jumps may not involve jumping far off the ground, but the repeated landings in a short amount of time can be especially tough on ankles without the padding in rubber gym flooring rolls like Greatmats offers.
Squat and Skater Jumping: Side-to-side jumping and lunging represent a key component of plyometric exercises. By making use of the Plyometric Rubber Roll with 1/2 inch thickness from Greatmats, you'll still have a steady footing for pushing off with these types of jumps, along with the cushioning to make landings feel better.
Other Exercising Ideas for Plyometric Flooring
Consider rubber gym flooring rolls for use in a school or athletic gym setting too. The cushioning available with these mats is amazing for keeping students and athletes healthy and able to perform at the top level, both during practices and games. Additionally, by offering a slightly cushioned rubber flooring rolls for gyms, athletes will be able to practice longer without pain and fatigue.
Cheerleading Workouts: If your cheerleading team at school or at the team gym must hold practice on a hard floor, such as a wood gym floor, the rubber gym flooring rolls from Greatmats will give you a much more appropriate flooring material. Cheerleaders are constantly performing jumps, rolls, hand springs and sudden dance moves where a cushioned flooring will yield a less stressful workout and help to avoid injuries.
Heavy Workouts: The 1/2 rubber flooring works great for intense aerobics and advanced plyometrics. By making use of cushioning in the floor during heavy aerobics routines, you'll have a greater ability to work out for longer periods without wearing down.
Picking an Installation Type
The 1/2 rubber flooring mats from Greatmats are easy to install. Depending on the use case you have in mind, we recommend taping or gluing down the mats to avoid having the flooring slide around on you during use. Gluing the rubber gym flooring rolls works best for permanent areas that have a high level of activity that could cause the mats to slide. Taping works best when the activity will be at an intermediate level, rather than at a high level, or if your workout space is more temporary.
However, when used as an underlayment for dance floors and other athletic floors, you can perform a dry lay installation with no adhesives if you choose. Of course, the advantage to a dry lay installation is that you can roll up the rubber gym flooring rolls when you've completed your activity and return the floor back to the original sub-floor.
Installation works best when placing the mats over a hard and flat surface. Dried concrete and wood offer the most successful sub-flooring options for these mats. If the sub-floor has slight indentations or raised areas, those imperfections will be visible through the plyometric mat material. You may want to try to repair any imperfections before you lay down the mats.
Plyometric Rubber Installation Tips
Before installation, you'll want to clean the flooring completely, removing dirt, grease, or any other foreign materials. We also recommend allowing the sub-floor to dry completely before attempting to install the 1/2 rubber flooring. Moisture on the sub-floor may cause the adhesive to fail prematurely or to not work at all.
We recommend starting rolling all of the mats from one wall of the room and going in the same direction every time. Additionally, make sure the same side of the roll is facing upward as you roll them out, just to minimize the chance of having significant variations in the shading of the mat's black color.
To avoid having to make many cuts, begin by rolling out the 1/2 rubber flooring rolls from the corner of the room that is most square. Then, if other walls aren't quite square, you can make trims and cuts as needed. The rubber material used in our rubber gym flooring rolls is relatively easy to cut with a utility knife and a straight edge.
If the walls in the room are not as square as you'd like them to be, you also have the option of creating an island installation, where you don't butt the material up against the walls. The combined plyometric mat area just floats in the middle of the room.
We do not recommend using duct tape or other strong types of tape to tape down the seams on the top section of the floor. Use of tape on the surface of the rubber flooring may cause a sticky residue to be left on floor that's extremely difficult to clean.
Plyometric Flooring Maintenance Tips
Our plyometric flooring rubber roll is economical and easy to maintain. To take care of the surface, you'll just vacuum the flooring as needed, usually a few times per week, depending on the amount of use the floor receives.
If you would like to have a more thorough cleaning of the 1/2 rubber flooring, you can use a damp mop as needed with a neutral pH cleaner such as Taski Profi. The slightly porous structure of rubber gym flooring rolls requires more drying time after mopping than standard rubber flooring. (This porous design also gives the plyometric mat flooring its bounce back capability with a bit of cushioning.)
Should you ever have some sort of damage or discoloration on the surface of the 1/2 rubber flooring, you have the option of reversing an individual mat.
Plyometric Mat Ordering Options
This highly-shock absorbent plyometric flooring roll measures 1/2 inch in thickness, but we at Greatmats also offer it in a 1/2 inch thickness measurement. If you're unsure which thickness will work best for your particular use cases, just contact our knowledgeable and friendly customer service team to gain the advice you need.
Our five-year manufacturer's limited warranty tells you how confident we are in the unmatched durability of the Plyometric Rubber Roll with 1/2 inch thickness. This floor will stand up to the explosive repetitions performed in rigorous athletic workouts, including plyometrics.
You can count on the quality of our rubber gym flooring rolls too, as they are a Made-in-the-USA product. Each plyometric mat has a thickness tolerance measurement of plus or minus 0.02 inches. By adhering to such strict manufacturing tolerances, our mats will work great for years. Cheaper mats that aren't as well constructed may have multiple areas of thin spots. This can cause the mats to buckle in those areas, leading to a premature failure of the rolls with cracking and tearing.
We also use tight tolerances in the size of the plyometric mat pieces. As a standard measurement, each mat is 4 feet wide, and the widths are created in tolerances of plus or minus 1/4 of an inch. As far as lengths, you can make a custom order of the length measurement of the roll. Contact customer service at Greatmats to learn more about your ordering options.
All of our Plyometric Rubber Roll are of a great quality and will deliver the cushioning and long life you're seeking at a great price.
Please Note: Cut lengths for rolled rubber products are provided as a courtesy at no additional cost to customers. In come cases, the manufacturer may provide a cut length within two pieces of material. In other cases, the manufacturer may send material that is over or under the specified linear footage. In all cases, the manufacturer is required to supply the overall amount of material per order. It is common for rolled rubber jobs to have butt seams or cut end seams within one roll or run.

Q & A⌃ Back to top
Will this product be durable enough for regular aerobic classes and kickboxing classes? Secondly, what's the best method to clean this product?
Could this product be used outdoors beneath a playset?
Is this durable enough to work with dumbells and other weights. Will it decompress after a heavy dumbell is moved?
Great quality mat. Little hard to cut, expect to go through razor blades quickly, replacing every 10-15 linear feet or so to maintain good quality cuts.
Product was exactly what I was looking for and came as advertised. The only complaint would be the not-so precise length-wise seams. It took additional trimming to butt the seams nicely. Otherwise installation was easy. The product was easy to manipulate with a utility knife, tin snips and a drywall square.
Fond du Lac, WI
Fantastic product! Exactly what we needed to protect our knees during our workouts. Cutting the mat to size was more difficult than we expected, but is a testament to the high quality of the rubber.
Purchasing from GreatMats was easy and left us very satisfied.
Very easy to install. Two passes with a utility knife and a T-square make close to perfect cuts. I did not use any adhesive (glue or tape) during installation - The weight of the mats alone keep them in place. I have a 15' x 15' room, so I got 2-30' rolls. They didn't expand or shrink with temperature, so there are no adjustments. The mats do smell pretty strong once rolled out and installed. I just kept the door to the gym closed for one week with the windows open. After 7days the smell was hardly noticeable; everyday it gets less and less. The mats perform exactly as advertised. It holds up well to weights (I have a weight cage) as well as plyometrics. It has enough firmness that it doesn't move, but enough flexibility to absorb impact. Would definitely buy again. Also, including shipping, I couldn't find a better deal.

That's not to much to say. This is a heavy pad that stands up well to weights and machines, yet it provides excellent cushioning for aerobics. It is easy to install and heavy enough not to need tape or adhesives to stay place. It is very heavy, and ships on a pallet.
Stone Mountain, GA
Product arrived within a couple weeks.... And dropped off in a large roll on a pallet. It was easy to transfer to a hand cart and move to the lower floor... This weighed about 200 lbs! Installation was straightforward and used a utility knife and drywall square. Did not use any adhesive as the weight of the mat was sufficient to keep it in place. The mat is excellent quality and perfect for my home exercise room.
As advertised. I am please with the purchase.
Excellent product. Extremely durable, provides great cushioning for plyometric exercises.
Mendham , NJ
Wonderful mat for a workout room/gym. We use the mat mostly for exercise programs like Insanity, but I'm confident it would work great under machine weight systems or with free weights.
The mat does not wear out like the small yoga mats do (even with a lot of movement while wearing cross training shoes).
