Beach Volleyball Stuff

Beach is my game  :D

I'm the kind of guy who reads widely about things I enjoy so I'll post up interesting stuff here as I find it. Most training discussions etc center on hard court games (b'ball, v;ball, athletics). Playing on sand is very different.

1st addition is this. How to jump in sand! Very important!

I play both indoor and beach. I haven't really done a lot of beach though, and I tell you what. Jumping on the sand is incredibly hard at first. Basically, the one thing I like to keep in mind is jump upwards not forwards, and swing your arms hard (important to get your non-hitting arm up nice and high to spot the ball).

Beach is great for your vertical though. Immediately, your vertical will go down, but after a while it'll skyrocket. Your calves will develop a lot also.
