MAXIMUM SPORTS CONDITIONING
VOLLEYBALL TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
Maximum’s philosophy on training volleyball players stems from the sport-specific actions they need to build, and the tools that college coaches use to judge their ability and potential.
Based on these skills, volleyball players must develop joint stability and connective tissue strength (to support landing, hitting, and changing directions quickly), core strength and trunk stability (to support postural stability, dropping center of gravity, and ability to create torque and rotary speed), posterior chain strength and power (to develop jumping ability, postural stability, and frontal and sagittal quickness), reactive speed and quickness, and power endurance (to maintain jumping ability and quickness through the 5th game).
Although each position has its unique demands, all volleyball players must improve these essential basic motor abilities.
