Gwgtrunks saidDoes anyone have tips on proper bumping technique? My forearms always end up getting really beat up whenever I play, which isn't often...
Could that be it? Is it just something that develops with time?
Any advice would be great .
It could be that the ball is too hard, and not your bumping technique. Last year there were a few nights when the volleyball was too hard and any bump would make me cringe.
Generally when you bump, you should have your knees bent, your arms extended and straight, and the ball should preferably hit the flat bottom of your wrist (not the side or the top). You know you have made a good bump when the ball goes towards the guy who is setting with good height and low velocity.
You can now volley when receiving serves, you don't have to always bump. That may take away some of the strain on your wrists.
