Injury Prevention for Volleyball


It’s often said that injuries are a part of sports. This is true, but it’s also true that many injuries can be avoided – or lessened in severity – if athletes follow a well-thought-out prevention plan. This book offers just that!

Combining the expertise of volleyball coach and certified strength and conditioning coach Marie Zidek and certified athlete trainer Patrick Langit, Injury Prevention for Volleyball provides over 45 exercises and workout plans targeted at primary risk areas: shoulder, low back, knee and ankle. Each exercise includes a diagram highlighting affected muscles, still image examples of the exercise being performed and an online video showing the exercise being performed properly.

With guidance from the authors and a few minutes of extra training each day, players can increase their chances of staying healthy and playing their best volleyball all season long.
