Volleyball requires many skills in order to play a formal game, such as passing, hitting, serving, blocking, and setting. It uses all major muscles and requires a lot of flexibility, especially in the chest, back and groin muscles so be sure to include a proper warm-up and stretch before practice or games. View your warm up as a gradual transition into playing in order to prepare your body and put you in the right mind-set.
- Volleyball is a very active sport that is a great workout for the arms and legs. It involves a lot of vertical jumping and over-the-head arm movements to return the ball to the opposing team.
