Next, the most popular attack that we would like to do and it's the most fun, is our Hard Cross spike. Whenever we're thinking about hitting hard cross, we're not trying to trick a defender into thinking we're doing something else. So when you are approaching the net using your four-step approach, after you have jumped and you've gone through that arm swing and you've drawn that bow and arrow, the next step is to follow through and swing at the volleyball. One of the most important things about hitting hard cross in beach volleyball s making sure that you are still trying to hit deep. If you notice that you are taping balls or if you're hitting balls into the net, then most likely what you're doing is you are trying to swing too hard at that ball, which we talked about in the arm swing video as well. Make sure that when you are going up to swing, you have your left shoulder pointing to the deep left corner of the volleyball court, which will allow you to throw your arm just like you're throwing a baseball to that opposite corner. If you concentrate on hitting this ball quick and fast and deep, then you're going to set yourself up for the best attack possible. We hope you enjoyed this free bach volleyball training video.
