Once the basic techniques are mastered, it's time to make the workout more "game specific."
1) The partner with the ball tosses to their team mate, who moves into position to take the ball at forehead level, legs about should width apart.
2) The player who is returning the ball catches the ball with fingertips and takes the movement out of the ball, but instead of starting over, they return the ball back to their partner.
3) 15 reps is a good workout, with 2 minute rests for multiple sets.
Although it's not a true set, this drill helps get the setters to move into position and strengthen their setting muscles, throughout the body. Pushing the ball back up also helps add realism to the workout.
