You are probably reading about volleyball workout because you are hoping to improve your skills and strength during volleyball matches. You've came to the right place.
I was in love with this sport since I was eleven, when my dad took me to watch a local volleyball match. I did not have a chance to actually try the sport until I was 17, when I joined a volleyball interest group.
The workout that I will be discussing today will help you improve your strength and muscular endurance, which in turn will better your performance in volleyball.
Volleyball can either be played in a court or on the beach, also known as beach volleyball. To start the game, players use overhand or underhand serves to launch the volleyball across the net, into the opposing team's court.
Following which, they use various strokes like the dig, to tackle low balls, spike, to smack the ball into an open area of the opponent's court. On top of that, there is also the block, where two or three players jump at the net and attempt to block the incoming ball from the opponent.
You'll notice from my description that there is a lot of emphasis on arm and leg power for volleyball players to execute the various moves. Therefore, the volleyball workout that I have planned will focus on strengthening your muscles and improving your muscular endurance.
Strive to complete 8-10 cycles of the abovementioned workouts to improve your arm power. Trust me, you will be spiking volleyballs a lot harder in time to come!
Yes, this volleyball workout is demanding. Try to complete 7-9 cycles of the entire workout suggested above.
What I will suggest to you is to complete interval training. Interval training basically means to run fast for a short period of time, then jog for a period of time. Rinse and repeat until you have covered your desired distance of run.
After two weeks, or when you are comfortable with one mile, up the distance by one mile. It is okay if you take more than two weeks.
Alternatively, if you are bored with timing yourself, choose landmarks.
Keep things varied and you will be able to stay motivated to exercise. Lack of variety kills your drive to exercise, so do not make the same mistake.
The pride you have from creating your own training workout will subconsciously instil a sense of commitment to carrying out the exercise regime. Therefore, don't procrastinate and start working on your own plan soon!
If you find a plan you love, you can always tell me about it and I might even share it here for other volleyball enthusiasts!
