In this video, Jim Stone breaks down how outside hitters can create a quality transition approach after a dig.
In order to set up for the attack, the outsider hitter must first get OFF the net, then worry about getting OUTSIDE to ready for the approach. That means a quick few backwards steps or shuffle past the ten-foot line, then quickly transitioning out to the pin. This same sequence of priorities applies to when the outside hitter is covering the tip. Instead of meandering to their approach position, outside hitters should be powerful and quick in getting to their position.
