About Beach Volleyball . . .
Whether you're a rookie, a convert from the court game, an experienced beach player looking to improve, or a fan of the greatest player ever, Karch Kiraly's Beach Volleyball is the only book you need. The three-time Olympian and six-time MVP on the pro beach tour has called upon his many lessons, years of experience, and championship seasons to create the only book devoted exclusively to this growing sport.
Beach Volleyball offers instruction and insight into what it takes both physically and mentally to be a success in the outdoor game. Each of the basic skills-serving, passing, setting, spiking, blocking, and digging-are fully explained, and 23 practice drills will help you refine and improve your technique.
The training section covers all the key components to proper training for beach volleyball: flexibility, strength, plyometrics, speed and agility, and endurance. And a high-level conditioning program includes 41 exercises and drills targeted specifically for the beach game. To help demonstrate the skills and drills, Beach Volleyball includes more than 60 instructional photographs of Kiraly and his trademark pink hat.
Beach Volleyball traces the game's early development and growing popularity to its Olympic involvement to give you a better understanding of the game. Kiraly covers game strategies and discusses partners and competition, throwing in a number of anecdotes from his matches to give the book a flavor no other author could provide. In Beach Volleyball, he shares many of his insights into what it takes to be a champion and gives you a rare opportunity to learn from the best ever.
