How can I learn to read the hitters when I´m in the back row?

Reading Hitters, Part 3

As you see the pass go into the air, you should now turn your attention to the setter as they move to the ball. Do they have a long way to go? Is the set far off the net, will they have to back set, how many options do they have?

All these factors will have an effect on what the setter will do next.

You can also pick up clues from the setter's body language. If they move their shoulders back, chances are, a back set will follow, for instance.

Any body clues you can pick up as the game goes on will help you gain the advantage when it comes to reading where a set will go.
