Athlete Development

Mike Israetel (Ph.D. Candidate, Sport Science)

Ashley Kavanaugh (Ph.D. Candidate, Sport Science)


How to become a better athlete l.jpg

How to Become a better Athlete?

  • 3 basic components:

    • Sound technical practice (volleyball skill practice)

    • Good nutrition

    • Proper strength training


Technical practice skill l.jpg

Technical Practice (Skill)

  • Learn fundamentals well

    • (They form the foundation of high level play.)

  • Practice consistently

    • (Year-round in some capacity.)

  • Don’t overtrain!

    • (Practice smart, not always hard. Take light days and days off weekly.)


Nutrition l.jpg

Nutrition

  • Drink skim milk or chocolate milk after every hard training session and weights session.

  • Eat a diet of:

    • Many (5+) small meals evenly throughout the day

    • High in protein (meat, milk, fish, eggs, poultry)

    • Eat plenty of green veggies and fruits


Weight training l.jpg

Weight Training

  • Two components of movement performance:

    • 1.) Skill (trained in practice)

    • 2.) Strength/Power (trained in the weight room)

  • Training for volleyball must focus on lower-body strength… deep squatting and deadlifting are MUSTS.

  • Find a Powerlifting or Weightlifting gym or coach in your area… tell them you want to get stronger legs.


Recovery adaptation l.jpg

Recovery/Adaptation

  • You don’t get better in the gym.

    Stimulate in the gym…

    …Adapt during rest.

  • In order to accelerate the adaptation (improvement) process:

    • Get plenty of sleep

    • Eat well

    • Relax and have fun when not training or doing schoolwork!
