Work Hard, Play Harder!

Do you want to hit harder, run faster, jump higher?  Well it's just as important to put in the work off the court as it is on the court.  Work and determination, that's what it takes to be a successful volleyball player.  If you want to earn the respect from other players and your coach it's important to work and train for great success.

As you continue to work on your game during beach season or indoor season, it's important to build into your routine a strength and conditioning regimen.

Your workout routine should contain at least 2-3 days of Weights and/or Plyometrics.  Create a workout split that focuses on certain muscle groups and not trying to do every body part in every workout.  A good routine would look something like:

M - Back, Biceps, Shoulders, Cardio
W - Chest, Triceps, Abs, Cardio
F - Legs and Abs

(Note: for a 2 day workout, just simply add Legs to Wednesday and Abs to Monday)

Now this is only a suggested routine, and there are many ways to mix/match this to challenge the body.  What's more important is to keep up a good diet, keep hydrated and be consistent to see the results.
