It's exciting to see a player go up and smash the ball from the back row, and many players can't wait to try it themselves. But remember, it's important that the ball go over! Hitting from the back row does no good if you powder the ball into the net.
So, at least when you begin, consider getting under the ball, squaring your shoulders, arching your back and hitting the ball without leaving the floor. You can still put a surprising amount of heat on your hit, and there's less chance of hitting it into the net.
Once you're more proficient, you can take on the task of adding a killer leap to your spiking routine.
