8 BlockingArms at 90: This is about the distance away from the net you should be to help prevent touching or stepping under the net.Knees flexed: Keeping the knees flexed will allow you to elevate much quicker when the opportunity presents itself. Less time spent on the ground means more blocks for you.Hands high: Make sure to keep your hands high and elbows at chest-level to minimize the amount of time it takes to get your hands above the net.Footwork: (click here for instructional video!)1.) Shuffle Step-Take one step with the foot closest to the hitter and then bring your other foot over so they are once again about shoulder-width apart.As you move, keep your hips and shoulders square to the net.It may take you more than one side step to get yourself in front of the hitter, but if it takes more than two, think about using a crossover step instead.2.) Cross-Over Step-Take one big side step with the leg closest to the hitter.Cross your other leg in front of your body while still keeping your shoulders as square to the net as possible. Your hips will momentarily be angled toward the hitter.Take one more step with the first leg, squaring your hips with the net once again.Plant your feet in front of the hitter and jump straight up (no drifting.)
