Endurance for Volleyball Players

I don’t understand why so many volleyball players run. Maybe they just don’t know how to train for volleyball-specific muscle endurance or perhaps they were told that running was the fastest way to lose weight (it isn’t) and they don’t care how it affects their game. But if you’re looking to train to improve your game, here are a few things to think about, especially when training in the off-season.

Traditional cardio, running, biking, elliptical, etc., will not whip you into volleyball shape because it doesn’t engage the correct muscle system and heart rate needed in volleyball.

Beach Volleyball Training Tips

As we prepare for beach season here are a few things to think about that can help you jump higher and play better!

The a one of the best things you can do for beach volleyball is to train in deep sand. You can’t go to the gym and only train on a hard surface and then expect that to convert over to the sand when you play. You have to learn how to move in sand and more important the correct form for jumping in sand. You don’t use all of your forward moment and jump towards the net like you would in indoor volleyball.

Winter Wonder Land

It is officially time to start dusting off the shovels, gassing up the snow blower, buying pounds and pounds of salt, pulling out the skis, wishing you had four wheel drive (if you don’t already), snuggling up in a blanket drinking hot chocolate because it is finally here… SNOW!  The past couple of weeks marked the first string of snowfall of winter and man did it strike with a vengeance.  We were blessed with an Indian Summer, but theFarmers Almanacis calling for a very white and wet winter.

Returning from Injury, as illustrated through the NBA

Injuries aren’t what they used to be. An ACL tear for Bernard King was almost a death sentence for his career. Nowadays, Iman Shumpert is flying through the air like a falcon with a high top fade like nothing happened, all within a year of tearing his ACL. Granted, there was a difference in age as well, but suffice to say that medical practices have allowed for a much speedier and efficient recovery from these devastating injuries.

And yet, all athletes know there’s a general tentativeness in your game when returning.

Pre Season Gear Check

All right shredders, it’s here! There’s snow on some of North America’s mountains, and lucky folks have already enjoyed powder days at resorts across the western U.S. and Canada. It’s time to put all those training hours from the days there wasn’t snow to good use. There’s still time to get intoHordoN HEALTHto build that stable trunk and bomb proof quads, but you’d better hustle. Now is the time to do our preseason gear check.
We do not recommend these choices!

Like many of our mountain carving brethren, I am a bit of a gear freak when it comes to my winter sports.
