Volleyball is a very powerful sport demanding strength from the ground up. Having a strong core, good hip flexibility, strength to jump, a strong back and shoulders are critical to becoming a competitive player. The average volleyball rally lasts anywhere between 4 and 6 seconds with approximately 11 to 16 seconds rest until the next serve. Volleyball training should be attacked in the same manor with the athlete working for a prescribed time and followed by 3 or 4 times that length for a rest period, so the body can restore its primary energy system. Easier put, a 1:3 or 1:4 work: rest ratio.
Volleyball workouts should train the phosphagen and glycolytic energy systems. The phosphagen system will kick in almost immediately providing the body with energy; however, this system is only sustainable in full capacity for about 6 seconds and is fully depleted by 30 seconds. The glycolytic system starts to kick in around 15 seconds and is running on all cylinders by 30 seconds and last up to a minute.
