How to Hit a Volleyball: Slow Motion Guide

Published on March 24, 2010 by   ·   No Comments

Last week I posted a 4 Step Guide to the 3 Step Approach, and I wanted to follow that up with this video I found on YouTube:

I like this video because it’s in slow motion. It can really show you all the components of a successful attack if you watch it a few times.

Things to take note of:

  • Watch the hitters’ arms and how they use them to propel themselves upwards.
  • See how they pike their bodies at the waist to increase the power behind their hits.
  • Because it’s in slow motion the speed of the movements isn’t obvious, but watch how quickly they’re snapping their wrists downwards after they hit.

Some of the comments on YouTube are saying the guys are hitting on a women’s net, but even if that’s true the form is still good to observe :)

If you have specific questions about anything from last week’s post or this video, feel free to post them in the comments and I’ll be happy to answer!
