It's a widely accepted fact amongst sports scientists that 80% of power for rotational sports movements is generated from hip & shoulder separation. If you're trying to improve arm speed, are your athletes spending 80% of your strength training time on increasing hip & shoulder separation? We find that almost 100% of strength and conditioning time for many volleyball athletes is spent on exercises which often don't address or improve hip & shoulder separation.
Most times, an athletes ability to hit with increasing power is dependent upon their rotational mobility and stability (control). If athletes aren't able to fully rotate their hips & shoulders, around their spine and in the proper movement sequence, their body will be limited to the forces from the use of their hitting arm & shoulder to hit with power. Other volleyball athletes may also arch their spine and then forcibly bend their spine to add additional power from the trunk, to the power of the hitting arm & shoulder. Both of these scenarios are not optimal as they can focus the hitting forces and stress on the smaller muscles of the shoulder and can create injury concerns to the shoulder and back.
Powercore 360 was developed to leverage the use of the entire body to spread forces over a larger area while increasing hip & shoulder separation, and ultimately increasing hitting power and arm speed.
Use PC360's Hip & Shoulder Program to:
1) increase mobility and stability in the thoracic spine & hips
2) improve power hitting mechanics
3) build explosive strength by teaching the hitter to use their entire body to hit with greater power & arm speed
4) reduce the stress on the hitting shoulder, arm, back and spine
Training with PC360's Advanced Training System:
Athletes train 3x/week using our patented Powercore 360s Advanced Training System. This system accelerates the learning process as athletes can feel correct and incorrect hitting movements to rapidly build the proper power serving & attack swing movement patterns. The system quickly & dramatically increases explosive power as athletes perform hitting movements against resistance bands connected to our hip or torso harness, or to our arm and leg cuffs. Finally, speed is developed as athletes use the assistance of resistance bands to perform over-speed drills to move the hips, spine & shoulders faster than they can move them on their own while safely performing hitting movements.
Our equipment and programs can be used for a single athlete or for an entire team in a group setting. It can be performed at home, at the gym, or on the court.
This video analyzes some of the most powerful throwers, hitters and strikers in various other sports. The point of this video is to show that these athleses all have one thing in common, they all have massive Hip & Shoulder Separation, which allows them to maximize power and reduce the risk of injury and use better mechanics than by using just arms and shoulders.

This video highlights a baseball pitcher, yes, but let's relate the motion to how it would be applied to volleyball athletes. Skip to 1:06 in the video and you will hear from one of the top pitching coaches in the world who states that 80% of throwing power comes from hip & shoulder separation. This is relevant because whether you're a pitcher, a quarteback, a hockey player or a volleyball player, having better hip & shoulder separation is one of the biggest keys, to increased power in overhead throwing or in hitting a volleyball overhead.
