Biomechanics of a Volleyball Spike Introduction One of the most exciting moves in volleyball to watch and to execute is the spike. The tall players with a high vertical jump ability execute the spike the best. To make this maneuver most difficult to return, the projectile (volleyball) is launched from an angle below the horizontal at high speeds.
The biomechanics of athletes playing volleyball, when an athlete goes to spike the ball their arms swing up. When you jump up for an increased vertical hit your body has to produce enough energy for you to be able to spike the ball over the net.
Volleyball Biomechanical Analysis 6 June 2017 Volleyball Serve Biomechanical factors influencing my Performance Contacting the ball at the top of arms reach If I did not contact the ball at the top of arms reach I would loose acceleration because the force is greater when the arm is at full reach.
The Volleyball spike is classified as a throw-like pushing force because the joints used in the kinetic chain extend in sequence one after another. As shown below. The ability to accelerate a mass depends on a change in velocity resulting from the application of external force.
A long, long time ago, in a website no longer working, resides a series of blogs about the biomechanics of volleyball. This is a long-awaited follow-up to the arm swing post from 2012. The original has disappeared and I cannot find the link to the most popular one (Update- I apparently looked for it the week that it did not exist.the link is here scroll down.Learn More
APPENDIX RECOMMENDATIONS It is believed that serving should not be underestimated as once perfected; it can either ace, or set up the point in a competitive rally. It is a controlled opportunity to dictate play, and should therefore be mastered. The only way to make my serve.Learn More
Biomechanics: Muscle and Jump Serve Essay Biomechanics is the study of the body in a mechanical sense. This field attempts to make sense of the complexity of human movement by looking at the parts involved, analogous to the manner in which a car mechanic may explain how a vehicle works.Learn More
Without the proper techniques, the serve can ultimately make a difference in a win and a loss. The detailed science of a volleyball serve can best be described using kinesiology, or the study of anatomical principles and physiological mechanics of movement, and biomechanics, the study of forces and there effects on living things.Learn More
Sport Biomechanics Lab University of Manitoba Sponsored by: Canadian Sport Center-Manitoba Kennedy Center University of Manitoba. 2 The Volleyball Jump Serve Introduction One of the most dramatic skills in modern volleyball is the spike serve, or the jump serve, which provides an exciting and dynamic skill that is captivating for players.Learn More
Introduction Biomechanics is the area of science involved with the analysis of human movement. The primary purpose of biomechanics is to evaluate the laws and principals of human kinetics and performance in order to gain a greater understanding of how and why the human body moves in the way it does (see figure one).Learn More
Sports biomechanics is a subfield within biomechanics and is its own branch of human and biological science. Essentially sport and exercise biomechanics is focused on analysing the physiological mechanics of human movement. This includes analysis of how forces interact and the effects these forces have on and within the body.Learn More

Through out this blog the biomechanics behind a volleyball dig will be explored. How these vary the accuracy of a volleyball dig will be looked at in detail. Focusing on what angle the ball is hit at when performing the dig affecting the accuracy. The other factor which will be looked into is how the dig is performed. Whether using the whole body or just the movement of the arms makes the shot.Learn More
Biomechanics in Volleyball. The movements of Volleyball are a complex combination of strength, power, agility, and finesse. Each of these components is comprised of intricate, small movements, the summation of which are coordinated acts of striking the volleyball in a desired fashion.Learn More
