VertiMax provides one of the best volleyball training equipment for building vertical jump power, creating better landing control, and improving the ability to change direction with speed. Vertical jump, speed, agility and control are extremely important for all volleyball players. Being able to jump higher is a huge advantage on the court when on both the offensive and defensive side of the net. Besides vertical jump exercises on the VertiMax V8 platform, there are many volleyball speed and agility drills available as an extension off the platform that can take a volleyball player to the next level with quickness on the court and overall fitness. The VertiMax Raptor allows your volleyball training program to be portable. See the video Why VertiMax is the best Volleyball Training Equipment to increase jump and defense skills.
The off-season is the perfect time to build athleticism and work on jump training. Without a rigorous practice and competition schedule, an athlete can invest their time into developing power and strength that will translate to the season. The off-season is also a great time to address any lingering issues and help reduce the risk of injury.
Use the VertiMax platforms right on the volleyball court with movements that directly translate to the game. This allows players to continue developing their skills on the court while also maintaining the strength and power gained in the off-season program.
For parents, the VertiMax offers volleyball training equipment that is safe and effective for players of all ages and levels. There are various exercises and options appropriate for the young athlete. Over time, training intensity is adjusted as the athletes advance in age and development. This tool will not only offer some simple things you can do at home, but the workouts will grow in difficulty as the young athlete grows and matures.
The resistance of the VertiMax both on and off the platform offers a unique form of training for the injured athlete and volleyball injury prevention. As the player phases out of the treatment stage and into the rehabilitation stage, the resistance can help re-introduce sport specific movements at slow and controlled tempos, activating and engaging muscles that need development to reduce the risk of injury.
The VertiMax App has Volleyball specific programming with three seasons of training available. Each In-Season, Off-Season, and Pre-Season session has three different phases to it's workout program and 3 days worth of developed content to create a comprehensive Volleyball training program for any day and time of the year. This volleyball program has been developed by Chris Gorres, VertiMax Master Trainer and Director of Sports Performance at Onyx Elite and Professional Volleyball Player Taylor Pischke.

The middle blocking position demands quick footwork and lateral agility to get from one antenna to the other. Blockers also need to elevate off the floor quickly and display good upper body strength. Defensive volleyball drills using the VertiMax V8 platform or Raptor can improve blocking techniques and increase speed and agility. The various accessories and attachments allow athletes to resist both lower body and upper body movements, all while performing sport specific skills.
Check out these volleyball defense drills with VertiMax that allows you to jump while loading the legs, waist, feet, and arms in the swing motion. Volleyball drills improve vertical performance and speed with the biggest increases in a player’s hitting, bumping, blocking, spiking and digging percentages.
The left and right hitting positions are reserved for the best overall athletes on the court. These athletes need to have upper body strength, explosive jumping power, and agility and quickness. The VertiMax V8 platform and the Raptor provides some of the best volleyball training for developing overall athleticism needed to pass, hit, serve, block, and defend. VertiMax also becomes a great volleyball training aid to develop fitness and conditioning as these positions rarely sub out.
Setters are typically the shortest players on the volleyball roster so they need to make up for the size difference with great quickness and footwork around the court. Like hitters, setters are also on the court for most of the game so conditioning is very important. VertiMax offers a unique way of resisting horizontal speed on the court, helping setters to work on their quickness, conditioning, and decision-making during game-like situations.
