How can you improve your jumb to jumb higher?
Th3 Freek (8 days ago)
Hey McKibbin’s and/or Taylor Crabb! Quick question on how you would train for these mechanics, especially if you’ve already been playing a while and may have developed some bad habits. Would you want to train them all-together or in parts so you’re not overwhelmed? And secondly, would you do it by swinging against a wall or actually getting on a court so it’s more apt to the situation you’re actually training for? Thanks!
Killian Tinsley (9 days ago)
fantastic video, thanks for breaking down all the different parts, but are these mechanics only for beach volley or can I apply them to volleyball as well??
The McKibbin Brothers (8 days ago)
Works for both my friend!

Worlds best vid no doubt but would have been super cool if at end of the video you guys showed us practice hitting alone using this swing like by yourself in front of a mirror at the gym with no ball and no dumbbell weights maybe 25 50 reps 4 sets or so..

Rachel Blair (22 days ago)
Thanks for the breakdown, not enough teaching videos on this topic from experienced coaches and players. I do have a question... I coach girls indoor and have always coached a similar arm swing to what you showed until I watched a video a few years ago with Jim Stone that emphasized the importance of drawing loose wrist below their chin and drawing hitting elbow down and back. The reasoning that made sense to me was that it allows for bigger core stretch, keeping chest high and reach with non-hitting arm and upper body rotation as opposed to drawing hitting hand and elbow high. This is the video at around 15:00 is where he talks about it. https://youtu.be/qxdSwHXY0aY Long story longer, I’ve seen great arguments for both techniques but was wondering if you see a higher payoff with high hand and elbow?

This was helpful thanks guy's. I have another problem though sometimes I'm in the air eye's on the ball and right at the swing most times i took my eye's away and it results in me missing the ball how can i fix this?

Is there specific volleyball workouts you guys do? I’m 5’09” and I’m athletic but a bit overweight for volleyball. My vertical isn’t that great as well as me using my core I cannot whatsoever remember to use my core when I swing

Is their anything I can do besides actually playing to strengthen my arms?
The McKibbin Brothers (1 month ago)
yes of course! almost everything you have to do to strengthen your arms happens in the weight room, not on the court/sand (playing)

Hey guys. Good video. But can you show us the front (or behind) picture of him hitting the ball and not only the profile...im curious about the position of his spiking hand towards his body...Or you can answer here. Thanks a lot. Because i assume its not completely in one straight line? Okay, nvm i can see it now in 0:17

Stumbled upon you guys searching for vids of Taylor (went to school together), but got intrigued by your guys’ content and the fact that you both are pros and still dish out all these vids in your spare time. Really awesome to see. Def got a new long term sub! 🤙🏽

Can I have a video about the tutorial to jump higher ??
Awesome video!
Monkey 03 (2 months ago)
I think people confuse power with speed!! If you try to snap using power, it makes your arms heavy and you will get slower results... now compare that with an relax back stretch following a quick snap finish.... You get a fast ball drop!!

Odiskis1 (2 months ago)
Is it possible to put up those slow mo shots by themselves? Just to be able to see the whole action from se the set, going to the batters box, and hitting. If you have more different angles that would be great too. I think you can learn a lot from watching the pros, but I feel like theres a few videos like that in volleyball. Where you see athletes doing one hit in slow motion. It is a big thing in tennis
The McKibbin Brothers (2 months ago)
This is a great idea, I actually just copied and pasted that into our video ideas list
Ranjoy Choudhuri (3 months ago)
Hey guys, I’m a pretty short dude.. about 5’7”. Recently I’ve been working on my jumping and spiking, but I have noticed that I have to take quite a bit of power off the swing in order to keep the ball within bounds, after hitting.. as far as my vertical goes, I can brush the top of a men’s net with my wrist, in sand.. any tips on how I could hit the ball harder and keep it within the lines at the same time. Also, any tips on how to increase my vertical, in sand, given that I am so short?? Thanks a bunch

Ethan Larsen (3 months ago)
Love the video. Weird question, but would you also apply this type of arm swing to indoor volleyball or would a "bow and arrow style" be more preferred? I have attempted to use it in indoor and have enjoyed it (although I am inductively still changing up my form). Just wanted to check in with you guys.
hurricane katrina (2 months ago)
Ethan Larsen i hit like that indoors and it’s killer. even using the nike swoosh arm swing when down balling makes a crazy difference
Kurt Kraus (3 months ago)
I'm 53 years old and have been playing volleyball for over 30 years. The last 5 years or so my spike velocity has dropped off significantly. After watching this video, I thought I would try the "nike swoosh" technique. OMG, what a difference! I don't think I've ever hit this hard in my life. Thanks McKibbin brothers for doing this video!

Jeff Lostica (4 months ago)
You guys are cool. And the "Bug" can Hit. I coach 7th grade girls. And the porblem with them is timing. I asked them why do you choose to Hit at a game when it has been set perfectly and you choose to freestanding hit. The answered " Cause we don't want to miss and look stupid at a game in front of the spectators, family or friends. WOW! So you rather take the chance for the other tem to score and look better? That was my reply. So, I tried multiple ways when to start your approach as the ball touches the hands of the setter. But they still stutter step and that's is one of the reasons the timing is off. After I see this video I liked how you both explained the steps and it's purpose ( which I have to do coaching the level of youth volleyball. I know its not me. And I know that most of my girls (if they try much more harder) can execute this main feature of volleyball. You might have already Ade a video of this cause I have not had a chance to scroll thrill of the yet. But if you have time , ideas and or suggestions that can help me explain it to them much better. I would appreciate it and will run the drill at our practices. Keep up the good work and thank you. Coach Jeff
Jeff Lostica (4 months ago)
Disregard, I found the proper video. Pretty close to what I have been training them to do. But, your 4 step hitting work is better. Lol P.S. I totally missed your explanation on the begining of this video that directs me to that link. Thanks guys. I will update you on the results....Coach Jeff.

What should be the general distance between the body and the ball while attacking. Because while I attack the ball is too far away or too close while I hit. I cannot syncronize my jump and ball contact. Any tips will be appreciated. Or make a video for this issue it will help a lot.

A good arm swing in my opinion depends on one’s shoulder structure. How the bones and joints are put together. I’ve seen plenty of people who will never have a good arm swing.
The McKibbin Brothers (4 months ago)
while this maybe could be true, you can always do something to improve mechanics no matter what you were born with in my opinion.

The McKibbin Brothers (4 months ago)
that's all on your partner, the setter. Communicate where you want the set to be always
You should make subtitles in Spanish for at least this video, the Spanish content is so poor, and my regular English was enough for know what you're talk about , but i'd love that more people (Spanish and latins) understand this video <3 good job and you got an Colombian subscriber

Great videos. M an outside spiker but 50% of my shots are going wide. It does not pitch inside the court. Are there any drills that I can do to snap my wrist during spiking to make the ball pitch down inside court more ? I have been looking for tips.
spearfishing_life (5 months ago)
CLEMENT CU people always talk about snapping your wrist but 90% of the people I see that hit the ball too high, don’t contact the ball on the top, they hit the bottom and it goes flying
