Destinee Hooker, USA Volleyball’s best spiker is one of the world’s best volleyball athletes today. She attributes her success on the court to her efforts in the weight room.

 

One exercise that caught us all by surprise during filming was the Single Leg Squat on Bosu with Tennis Ball Pass. This exercise falls into the “unstable surface training” segment because of the pressure it puts on every muscle in your body to stay alert and react accordingly based on the delivery of each and every tennis ball. Destinee focuses on balance first and reaction second. This exercise, when done correctly improves your ability to adjust to change in direction faster and with a more fluid motion.
