Venice Volleyball – Leg Circuit Test

5

Friday we tested on the Leg Circuit

  • Bodyweight Squat x 20 (Break Parallel)
  • Bodyweight Lunge x 20 (Lunge as long as leg length)
  • Bodyweight step-up x 20 (Touch head at full extension)
  • Jump Squat x 10

The test was one time through the circuit for time. The whole squad was under 1 minute 10 seconds which is outstanding. One girl broke the one minute barrier, even though she had to do five extra lunges. In my system this indicates they are right on course in terms of the whole program. They have been training since January 11. This week they play two pre-season games, next week the regular season starts. The challenge now will be to continue to build during the first third of the season.
