What would it feel like to have all the volleyball training information at your finger tips to enable you to coach your players more effectively on how to:
Coaches need to design volleyball drills and conditioning that's not only unique to their team, but to each individual player on the team.
Important things to consider...
What about the approach to spike? Does all your teams attackers approach to hit correctly?
How about setting? How is your setters footwork? Often just by developing consistent footwork, a setter increases quickness.
Can all your players on the team set cleanly? Is there anyone on the team that needs to improve their setting skills?
Does everyone on the team serve tough or do you have players that just try to serve the ball in the court?
I believe serving well is very important to winning.
Serving is the one skill you have complete control over how well you execute it.
These are just some of the questions you should be asking yourself both as a player or coach.
Along with conditioning volleyball drills, a players level of strength training is an important factor to being
a successful player.
Design workouts that are specific to your sport. Even better, perform assessment tests to discover your individual strengths and weaknesses.
Develop powerful movement with functional training. Increase your strength and power by developing your core muscles.
By understanding weight training variables such as exercise order and training load you will be able to design workouts that are specific to your own strength development.
Every sport uses biological energy systems in different ways.
Learn about the concept of sport-specificity and how valuable it is to develop sport specific strength and power.
By learning about how to develop the right kind of fitness, you will know how to develop the energy needed to continue to approach faster, jump higher, and hit harder throughout a match or tournament.
If you want the same results that you've always been getting, then continue to do what you've always done. To take your game to the next level, you're going to have to start thinking differently and thinking more.
