During the winter months, we might not receive adequate amounts of vitamin D because of limited exposure to the sun. For volleyballÂ players, this can be a serious problem as a vitamin D deficiencyÂ can cause health problems in the short- and long-term, as well as compromise their gameplay.
Hereâ€™s why you should consider becoming an outdoor volleyball playerÂ during the off-season.
1.Â Enhance Muscle Strength
Outdoor volleyball players are exposed to several variables which can be controlled or entirely removed in indoor settings, such as sunlight, wind, temperature, etc. All of these factors together make it physically more challenging to play the game, which in the long run, will help you build greater muscle strength.
2.Â Build Endurance
Have you found yourself breathing heavily after climbing a flight of stairs? That might indicate that your stamina needs a bit of work. Outdoor volleyball players,Â including those who play beach volleyballÂ have been found to have greater stamina than indoor players on average since outdoor players have to navigate and respond to environmental changes during their matches.
3.Â Increased Hand-Eye Coordination
Playing volleyballÂ outdoors also contributes to better focus and hand-eye coordination. Youâ€™ll find your reflexes getting sharper as youâ€™ll be required to focus and maintain your balance while other things are going on in the background. This is incredibly useful for professional volleyballÂ players who want to stay sharp all year round just in time for their season.
4.Â Improve Mental Health
Finally, outdoor volleyball players might enjoy better mental health, as being around nature can help release stress and tension in the body, leaving a calmer state of mind. Research has shown that engaging in physical activity helps combat feelings of stress and anxiety, so if you were to combine that with being outdoors, youâ€™ll surely increase your chances of feeling better.
