By activating key muscle groups, large and small, prior to more ballistic movements.

Like all dynamic warm-ups this drill will:

The “Over / Unders” dynamic volleyball warm-up drill is a great drill to warm up and stretch multiple muscles before playing or training! What I like about this volleyball drill is it is very volleyball specific and fire many key muscles used in passing, defense, agility and movement on the court.Details
Shin Holds – This is a great dynamic volleyball warmup drill that will stretch your muscles and get you ready for your workout or practice.
A dynamic warm-up for Volleyball is one that challenges every part of your body that you use while playing the game. A dynamic warm-up coordinates all of your moving parts—muscles, ligaments.
