Core exercises are critical to increasing performance and avoiding injuries when playing volleyball. Chopping exercises improve core rotation strength which is critical to more effectively transfer force between your upper and lower body, and ultimately spike harder, jump higher and move faster.
Building core rotational strength in the critical core muscles also stabilizes your spine, allowing you to be more balanced as you move on the court.
Sets/Reps: 3×8-10 each side

Can this be used with theraband/resistance cords?
Also when you were told to do each chopping into two motions, was it down and stop and then back, or to your chest and down and stop and then back? And how do you time your breathing for it?
I’ll give it a try with my thermaband cord tomorrow 🙂
