This video contains two of our favorite exercises for volleyball, RDL’s (Romanian Dead lift) and anti rotation core stability training. What we like about RDL is that it is one of the best exercises to build hamstrings, one of the most critical muscles for jumping and volleyball. As for the core anti rotation stability exercise, we love this exercise as what we hear from many of our top athletes is that this is one of the most important factors for injury prevention when spiking.
This video contains two exercises, the hang power snatch and an ankle mobility exercise. This video is over 15 minutes long and as such will be a little slower to download. This video gets extremely detailed on teaching a hang power snatch to athletes and uses progressive steps to have success.
In this video, Velocity Sports Performance Coach – Chase Cameron explains our goals for the next portion of the workout, the strength and power portion. This video will give you not only an insight into how this workout is designed but also how Velocity designs their weekly workout plan which generally consist of 3 workouts a week. A linear day, a jump / landing day and a multi-directional day.
This video is a progression from the previous cone drill as now a ball is added to the exercise to make it more dynamic and volleyball game like. This forces the athletes to concentrate in new ways and use other skills to perform the exercise.
his video contains a cone drill for the multi- directional movement portion of the workout. what we like about this exercise is that it is volleyball specific and can easily be modified or adjusted to meet your players unique needs. Also it is added straight to the workout so your athletes are learning volleyball specific movements while training and improving athletic performance.
In this video Chase Cameron, Velocity Sports Perseverance Coach explains the difference between Static and dynamic stretching and when each type of stretching should be used and why. This video offers a good quick explanation and is a must see for any player, coach or trainer who does not fully understand the subject and the impact on volleyball athletic performance.
This video contains exercises for the movement portion of velocity workout 3 – multi directional workout. The ability for volleyball athletes to move successfully in all directions is critical for volleyball defense especially beach volleyball defense.
The pogo volleyball exercise drill is a great drill that accomplishes multiple task including, warming up athletes, increasing linear and multi-directional speed, and improving athletes vertical jump.
Volleyball thermogenic warm up’s are a good way to get ready for most volleyball related activity including lifting, training, sprinting, workouts and of course playing volleyball. Thermogenesis is a process in which the body generates heat. In exercise-induced thermogenesis, the body creates heat to warm up the muscles because warm muscles work better and more efficiently.
This video contains the Glut Med Activation exercises used by the athletes to get ready for workout 3. These exercises should be used before workouts as well as physical training / playing. Top players like Sean Rosenthal and Phil Dalhausser do glut med activation exercises before practice.

This is the 2nd series of exercises from the strength and power portion of workout 2. Again 2 exercises are done at the same time switching back and fourth during rest. Also try not to laugh to hard when you see Andor in his 3rd set of pull up’s really really struggle! 🙂
The next portion of workout 2 is the strength and power portion of the workout. Each day and all of Velocity’s workouts have a strength and power component to the workout. Usually this is some form of lifting often including a Olympics style lifting exercises. Today’s exercises include a back squat alternating with a 3 point row.
