Bond Shymansky is the former Marquette University Volleyball Head Coach and he provides clear instruction on the performance, strategy and purpose behind this drill. Coach Shymansky explains why traditional pepper creates several problems and how this drill addresses these issues.
In this drill involving three players, players have to work together against the hitter and the warm up evolves into a much more random, game-like fashion than traditional pepper, which tends to be more linear.

With University of Virginia Head Coach Steve Garland you will learn about the intangibles of drilling and how to drill properly. The ‘Underhook Drill’ shown by Coach Garland is a creative way to get wrestlers warmed up and ready to go without the mindless slogging (slow + jogging) so common in practice rooms of today.
Wrestlers will become much more comfortable with the underhook position and have more fun as the warm up becomes more of a game. Preventing staleness is a key for being successful in wrestling and Coach Garland has shown a great drill to get the room fired up and excited to practice.
