Volleyball Resistance Training Program: Grades 11

advertisement
By: Scott Janczak
Intro….(Game intro & length)

My project is based on a 2 week resistance training program for
men’s high school volleyball at the varsity level. The two week
program is designed to be used during the pre-season to
prepare the athlete for the upcoming season. High School
volleyball is a fall sport and begins in early August and lasts
through the end of October. This program is designed to be
used during the early parts of August. Volleyball is a sport that
requires high amounts of muscular endurance as well as a
strong core and lower body strength due to the demands of the
sport. It is also very important for the athlete to be agile due to
the constant changing direction of the volleyball during a match.
Volleyball consists of a best of 5 format, the first team to win 3
sets, wins the match. Sets are played up to 25 points, the first
team to achieve 25 points wins the set, however, you must win
by 2 points, so the set could continue on past 25 points. A
match lasts roughly between 90 minutes and 180 minutes.
Teams may play more than 1 match in a day during tournament
play, thus playing into the muscular endurance needed to
compete at a high level in this sport.
Intro cont….(Norms)

Volleyball is generally considered a non contact sport, but that’s not to say
there is no occasional contact between players diving/lunging for the ball.
The program schedule will consist of one day, upper body, followed by a
lower body workout the next day. A rest day will follow consisting of a light
cardio workout (30-40 minutes). Rest periods will be key during the training
program as to not burn out the athlete before the season begins.
Remember, it is most important for the athlete to achieve their top
performance at the end of the year, not during the pre-season. For the
training program we are working with varsity aged males (17 and 18 year
olds) so we wont have many aged restrictions on what kind of exercises can
be performed. For this particular program we are not focusing on a specific
volleyball position, but instead it’s a general program designed for every
player on the team. At the beginning and end of the 2 week program, we
will test the athlete to ensure he is on the correct path towards achieving his
goal. The test will look for an increase in muscular strength and endurance
compared against the beginning numbers at the start of the program. For
the norms at the beginning of this program, 2-3 sets consisting of 8-12 reps
of each exercise. At the end of the 2 week program, the athlete is expected
to increase the sets to 3-4, and the reps to 12-15.
Intro cont….(Muscle Groups)

We will be focusing the program on the upper body,
core, and lower body muscle groups. The upper
body groups consist of the chest (pectorals major &
minor), shoulder (deltoid anterior & middle head),
and Biceps (brachialis, biceps brachii long & short
head). The Abdominal muscle groups include the
(exterior & internal abdominal oblique, rectus &
transverse abdominis). The lower body muscle
group consists of the Hamstrings (biceps femoris,
semitendinosus, & semimembranosus), The
Quadriceps (rectus femoris, vastus intermedius,
vastus medialis, and the vastus lateralis), and the
calf muscles (gastrocnemius and soleus). Our
workout will also focus on using the two energy
systems within out bodies (aerobic & anaerobic)
Safety Considerations:








Ensure enough room is available to the athletes
Weights & equipment should be inspected and
ensured for safety
First Aid Kit
Proper fluid intake (have water/Gatorade readily
available
Have athletes work in groups (2-3) so there will
always be a spotter available
Ensure the weights are safe for use
Check pre-existing medical conditions
Ensure all athletes know how to properly perform
each exercise as well as spot the exercise (coach
should demonstrate both)
Modifications:
Load – amount of weight will vary
depending on build of the athlete
 Outdoor track or stationary bike
depending on weather conditions

Summary:

This training program (unit) is designed to increase
muscle endurance and strength to achieve top
performance in indoor men’s varsity volleyball. This
program should be followed exactly each day and
set up. The athletes will be expected to follow this
program as well with the exception being an injury.
This program has been set up to challenge an
athlete who has been actively working out and has
played and competed at the high school level before.
The athletes safety should be of upmost importance
and the safety considerations should be followed.
The workouts should be performed in a gym setting
with weights and equipment readily available to the
athlete.
