Naturally I am always surprised and humbled because when I started Volleyball1on1 my goal was to just film the best players and coaches in the world and never did I think my videos would be some of the most popular.
Today I am going to share some of these video including some of my favorite that I think are really good but have not become popular. The videos cover some of the most popular points as it relates to hitting / spiking for beach and indoor volleyball plus it sets up a foundation for some of my new concepts that I am launching on volleyball coaching over the next few weeks that I think have the ability to change the way the game is taught.
Obviously, I know that is a big statement, but having spent 3 years developing my ideas and building on the concepts of the most successful coaches of our time plus experts in vision and how we as humans respond to stimuli which is the basis for all sports skill including volleyball I hope some of you may agree once you hear them.
The first video I want to highlight is a video from a private lesson for a youth player. The video was never meant as an instructional video but it became extremely popular with almost 100,000 views, 300 likes and 9 dislikes!
Coaching the Volleyball Skill of Spiking to Youth Players

Important points include how the Volleyball Spiking Armswing can be different based upon how high you jump as well as the importance of getting your arm back and ready so that it can move forward to spike! This is by far one of my favorite videos as it shows me in my element working with kids helping them with the sport that I love!
The next video I want to highlight is a video that shows from a young age my intense desire to learn from the best and seek out the best information on volleyball no matter how, not matter where. I remember first reading about the ideas as a kid in volleyball magazine in South Africa. For those of you that don’t know this was in 1992, 1993 when I would push trolley all week to save the 25 bucks (I was the only one in South Africa reading it so that had to ship 1 copy to me!) to buy it.
The video highlights Karch groundbreaking work on mobility and flexibility and how this can have a massive impact on injury prevention and shoulder spiking speed. This video features 3 of my favorite shoulder exercises plus a few I developed over the years while playing at UCLA and working with this Japanese coach on high contact when hitting! Video has almost 60,000 views, 127 Likes and 1 dislike!
Karch Kiraly Volleyball Spiking Flexibility Secrets for Power and Injury Prevention

The Next video is by far my most popular video on Volleyball Spiking Technique online. The video is on two YouTube Channels and has over 1 million views, 3000 likes and 100 dislikes. I am really proud of this video and the ideas I developed while coaching my own club of 10 teams while still attending UCLA University.
In looking and reviewing this video today I still feel this is the best way to teach Volleyball spiking technique. I think I could have added more in this video on using your trunk for power however I stand firm on the ideas in this video.
I think the technique in this video follows the Armswing of the Japanese players who I feel are the best to follow and copy. The reason is because of their physical limitations they often need to be more technically sound when hitting. Also when looking at the most successful player in Women’s Volleyball most follow this technique. My favorite examples: Logan Tom and Kim Yeon Koung.
Volleyball Spiking Technique and Form

This video later became controversial and as a result I made some videos to counter some of the new techniques I saw being taught.

Here is another video I filmed on the subject but this time bringing in a Shoulder Injury expert.

This videos goes over why the tennis and baseball Armswing may not be the best Armswing for volleyball.
Next Video is a spiking evaluation and the importance of using trunk rotation to generate power.

Although this video is not popular yet I think it is a great video that shows why many players have shoulder problems and just how easy it is to fix it by opening up your hips on your approach to allow trunk rotation for power. Also this video I feel teaches youth so much about correct volleyball spiking technique and form.
The next video is extremely popular as it teaches players how to spike a volleyball hard. This video was a result of my own research as a player and what I discovered was needed to spike a volleyball really really hard and with insane heat and a heavy ball.

Uni High Match Day – End of Match Review with the Team – Volleyball Coaching Nightmareshttp://www.volleyball1on1.com/uni-high-match-day-end-of-match-review-with-the-team-volleyball-coaching-nightmares/ http://www.volleyball1on1.com/uni-high-match-day-end-of-match-review-with-the-team-volleyball-coaching-nightmares/#comments Tue, 24 Feb 2015 12:43:18 +0000 http://www.volleyball1on1.com/?p=313384 This is the end match team review at Uni High. You will notice Kerri really trying hard to ask open probe questions in order to engage the players. In evaluating I think most viewers will agree she is soliciting more interaction and engagement from the team than she did in the past. There are some other interesting things to note in this video such as how Andor engages with the players verses Kerri.

This is another powerful video which reveals how Andor makes the most use of the limited time focusing on specific players and goals as well as changing the collective energy of the group. Again you will notice the Socratic method of coaching and how Andor takes the players down a path that he wants. This video shows how brilliant coaches interact with their team changing the collective energy during breaks. The results in set two speak to the success of this method as they crush their opponent!

Uni High Match Day – On the Bench Coaching – Volleyball Coaching Nightmareshttp://www.volleyball1on1.com/uni-high-match-day-on-the-bench-coaching-volleyball-coaching-nightmares/ http://www.volleyball1on1.com/uni-high-match-day-on-the-bench-coaching-volleyball-coaching-nightmares/#comments Tue, 24 Feb 2015 09:21:13 +0000 http://www.volleyball1on1.com/?p=313202 Uni High Match Day - On the Bench Coaching -  Volleyball Coaching NightmaresAndor is a big believer in “On the Bench Coaching”. In these videos viewers will see how Andor interacts and communicates with players on the bench and some of the topics he focuses on. If you are a coach looking to have a bigger impact in the lives of players beyond just playing volleyball this video shows how easily and effectively “On the Bench Coaching is”.
* Note this video is more sensitive than most and we are grateful that the players let us reveal their fears so openly online. Personally, this video is one of my favorite videos from the Volleyball Coaching Nightmares Series as it reveals the massive and immediate impact coaches can have on the development of their players as men! Andor in these two videos is helping one player become a better leader while helping the other change some major limiting beliefs / philosophies in his life.
More Notes: Andor is a big believer in the Socratic Method of Coaching. He uses open probe questions with: Who, What, Why, Where, O, So, Meaning, And, Tell Me to get the players to talk and then he leads them down a path when they have self discovery.

Y-T-W Exercise for Volleyball Shoulder Posterior Activation and Scapular Stabilizinghttp://www.volleyball1on1.com/y-t-w-exercise-for-volleyball-shoulder-posterior-activation-and-scapular-stabilizing/ http://www.volleyball1on1.com/y-t-w-exercise-for-volleyball-shoulder-posterior-activation-and-scapular-stabilizing/#comments Wed, 18 Feb 2015 11:18:46 +0000 http://www.volleyball1on1.com/?p=292708 So I have been training and playing hard now for months in South Africa with little to no shoulder pain or any of the common volleyball shoulder injuries. I attribute this to some minor changes I made in my arm swing as well as this great exercise I picked up from the volleyball trainers at Velocity Fitness.
Y-T-W is a great volleyball shoulder exercise for posterior activation and scapular stabilizing. I have built the exercise into the early part of every workout (2-4 Times Week) during my mobility and active warmup. I work the exercise in as a circuit with other mobility exercise doing 3 sets of 8 reps for each movement, so 8 – Y, 8 – T, 8 – W.
Additionally once you are comfortable with the exercise and the rigor of it I suggest you add TRX Inverted Rows at the end of each set so that you run it: Y-T-W-Inverted Rows. Again I suggest the same number of reps, so 8 – Y, 8 – T, 8 – W and 8 – Inverted Rows.
Please comment below and let me know your thoughts? Also we have filmed 3 incredible workouts with Velocity fitness that I highly encourage all serious volleyball players and coaches to see.
