Full body strength
Marie Zidek leads us through an intense total body strength workout that can be done with very limited space. Having a strong lower body including the glutes, hamstrings and quads is imperative to keeping a volleyball player healthy. In this workout, you'll be taught proper muscle mechanics during the various exercises.
Today's workout begins by activating the glutes, core, quads and hamstrings with glute bridges, side planks and light core work.
Next, we'll transition into our lower body strength exercises including overhead squats, lunges, kettlebell swings (but with a backpack filled with books!)and single arm squat presses.
Lastly, we'll work the upper body and core using a backpack filled with books as our weight. We'll perform v-ups, weighted push-ups, bent over rows and mountain climbers. This workout will get you sweaty, focused and fatigued.
