One of the best things you can do to improve your indoor volleyball game is to train in the sand. When you train in the sand something happens and the results you get are amazing.
First of all, when you have to learn to move in sand, you will learn to use all of your leg muscles. By recruiting more muscles in your legs you will develop more powerful legs and increase your vertical jump.
Jumping in sand is no easy thing, just ask any beach volleyball player. When you are able to jump high enough in sand to spike a volleyball you will find it extremely easy to spike a ball when you jump off of a hard surface such as in indoor volleyball.
The key is learning how to jump higher in the sand so that you can improve both your beach game and indoor game. It’s time to start jumping higher, you have no excuse for not dominating on the court. Everyone can gain a few inches on their vertical leap, it doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or professional, there is always room for improvement.
This workout will make you sore but it will also increase your vertical jump. Get a heavy weighted medicine ball of about 15 pounds and take it to the beach with you. You can do this workout with a partner. You will get the ball and go down into a squat and then jump up and throw the ball as high as you can over the net to your partner. Your partner will then catch the ball as they go into a squat and repeat the same exercise while throwing it back to you.
