Volleyball is characterized by frequent short bouts of high-intensity exercise, followed by periods of low-intensity exercise and brief rest periods. Therefore, volleyball players possess considerable speed and muscular power and the ability to perform these repeated maximal efforts with limited recovery for the duration of the match. Readers of this chapter will learn how to programme to enable athletes to meet these demands, while reducing the likelihood of common injuries associated with this sport. Finally a fitness testing battery is provided, enabling coaches to evaluate the efficacy of their programme, ensuring athletes are physically ready to compete at the highest level.
