MAS­TER BEACH VOL­LEY­BALL

Men's Health (Malaysia) - - Cover Stories -

An Olympic medal­list’s three sim­ple steps to rule the sands.

Yeah, the game is just for fun. But feel free to dom­i­nate

DIG IT, BABY Go for the ball low, and keep your legs bent, says Olympic sil­ver medal­ist Jen­nifer Kessy. Dig it to­ward the cen­tre of your side of the court, where your team­mates are likely loi­ter­ing.

SET SMARTLY You’re not play­ing with Olympians, so keep your sets low and within reach of mere mor­tals. Re­mem­ber: face where you want the ball to go, not where your team­mate is.

SPIKE PRE­CISELY Jump us­ing both feet, swing­ing your arms for lift. Re­sist the urge to crush the ball; soft shots to empty spots on your op­po­nent’s side are killer, es­pe­cially if your ri­vals have been drink­ing.
