Plyometric Volleyball Drills
This sample program consists of two volleyball plyometrics sessions per week.
This is perfectly adequate to convert strength in sport-specific power and reduces
the risk of over-training that can occur with more sessions each week.
Plyometrics are usually performed during the mid to late pre-season phase of
training. The closed season and early pre-season can be used to develop functional
and maximal strength, which is then converted to explosive power.
Because these volleyball plyometrics exercises require maximal effort and a high
quality of movement, don’t perform any other training immediately before – such as
endurance runs, resistance training or speed training. Of course it goes without
saying that a thorough warm-up should be completed first.
