Volleyball Drills – Finger Strength Training Aid for Setting & Passing


Hi. My name is Dr. Terry Zachary and I am the developer of the Handmaster Plus This video today is for volleyball players and especially for training the fingers for setting and overhead passing i really feel strongly that all volleyball players should have this easy tool that we’ve developed Handmaster Plus in their training bag very simply in the old days we used to use either
a uh… rice box exercise for the for the
athletes the volleyball players to train their fingers or use elastic bands have them to
several different elastic moves with the fingers to isolate the muscles as well as squeezing the ball or
spring-loaded item or coiled item we developed Handmaster Plus and now it’s very
easy for every volleyball player to trained their fingers properly for the setting and the
passing in one exercise, one continuous exercise
and unlike a rice box we could put the Handmaster Plus in their training bag and uh… they can train any time so very simply I’m going to show you our main exercise for volleyball players is to
will show you just how it is instead of many exercise we have one simple
exercise it’s very easy to train we know that volleyball players have many other muscle
groups to train so we want to make it easier for them to train their fingers properly I’m going to put the Handmaster Plus on the thumb first and then on the fingers next very simply what I’m going to do is keep the wrist straight I’m going to squeeze against the ball for a count of one I’m going to open and spread for a count of one repeat that, squeeze for a count of one open and spread for a count of one I am going to continue that until I feel a comfortable fatigue when you start your probably going to notice that within oh half a minute to a minute and as you get using it you’ll be able to go a couple of minutes to properly train both the finger extensor muscles and the finger flexor muscles well as the
abductor muscles, the spreading muscles and the adductor muscles, the closing muscles so you can see how its a real advantage in the setting and the passing to have those strong finger extensor muscles
that’s right here especially we train against the resistance of the Handmaster cord and instead of two or three exercises, ONE continues exercises that you can do any time okay The other thing about the Handmaster Plus, this is a medium with the red ball and the black cords but the product also comes in a soft my hand is tired right now so I am just going to take it off and I’ll explain that it also comes in the
soft which has a blue colored ball and yellow colored cords and we see so much jammed so many jammed fingers in volleyball, fingers sprains, thumb sprains that it also gives a very easy resource to rehabilitate with… so i really highly
suggest that volleyball players have Handmaster Plus even a soft and a medium in their training bag and especially that the athletic trainers have
them either for each individual or the training room we do sell the product now in 12 packs team 12 packs based on a request from
volleyball teams and other teams, we do have this product with many
other uh… sporting pursuits, but volleyball really really
really applies strongly for Handmaster Plus if you’d like more information on the Handmaster Plus you can send us an email at [email protected] and if you’d like to purchase Handmaster Plus you can look for distributors at www.doczac.com www.doczac.com www.doczac.com www.doczac.com www.doczac.com you can also have the option of buying directly online a single or in 12 packs

  2. doczac- My daughter is 10 years old and has normal sized, 10 year old hands. Is she too small to use this effectively?

  3. Very sorry for the delay in reply. Our Q's had not been being forwarded to us. In response to your question, Handmaster Plus can be used by nearly all hand sizes. The smaller the hands, the greater will be the resistance of finger flexors emphasized and the less will be the ROM of the finger extensors. Ideally our literature says 13 yoa and older for best results, but it has tested well in smaller hands as in 9 olds. Hope that helps.

  4. Seeing as you are an expert in your area, is it easy for the fingers to get swollen when spiking the ball?

  5. I dont think anyone would considered this a regular problem unless there is a traumatic contact during the spike. Be sure to check technique with an expert. We do recommend Handmaster Plus for general maintenance of fingers, thumb, hand, wrist & elbows via balance hand muscles and maximized circulation to all soft tissue. This will help reduce casual swelling as your body gets more efficient

  6. thanks. When you mean traumatic contact, how bad does it have to be? Are injuries like capsular injuries and sprains examples?

  7. Yes, awkward contact affecting tendons, cartilage & joint capsules. There are of course many finger & thumb injuries in volleyball due even to normal play. To maintaing maximum healthy circulation is a must for prevention and repair.

  8. I was wondering if the medium or soft is better to continue strengthening your fingers over a long time period? thanks!

  9. medium is what most healthy, average strength volleyball players will use for performance and muscle health and balance. If you have any doubt, start with the soft and advance as needed. single units and full 3-packs (soft, medium, firm) are available our website (see link in video description).
