How to Load Hips to Improve Blocking in Volleyball

Loading the Hips

Learning how to load the hip muscles will help improve jumping mechanics and volleyball blocking performance.

Connect two bands to the PC360 Power Hip Trainer and practice loading the hips and jumping.

Loading the Hands

To train the hands and arms independent of the hips, connect bands to the wrists to coordinate the blocking movements, increase arm and hand speed and condition specific muscles at the same time.

Advanced Training

For advanced training, an athlete could connect bands to the hips and wrists at the same time. This would teach loading the hips and the arm at the same time, and will help coordinate jumping and blocking motion and condition the muscles of the legs, hips core and shoulders while practicing blocking.
