I don't know if I told you this but I had a pretty serious spine injury a few years ago. It healed alright but I've had to take ibuprofen like M&M's ever since. I'm in my 5th week of your program and for the first time in almost a decade I'm not hurting when I wake up and I haven't needed anti-inflammatories.
THIS ROUTINE HAS BEEN A GAME CHANGER!
I started playing beach this summer with some friends as a way to get out during quarantine.
Your courses have been super helpful on getting me started! We're all beginners but now we have some simple drills to do and it's totally helping.
Much love to the channel, the site and the courses dude.
I gotta say that I'm enjoying this training so much!
I have been so desperate for volleyball coaching since I started playing (at 28 year old and now 34). I never really progressed in all those years.
I found the Better at Beach YouTube channel THIS SUMMER and felt unlocked, if that makes sense.
Just wanted to express my gratitude.
Of all the coaching I have had, Mark is far and above the best.
He breaks down instructions in easy to follow directions and gives great feedback without being overwhelming.
The best part of having him as a coach is how fast my game has improved.
With game play scenarios at the end of each lesson I see my through process adjusting. Smarter playing and improved technique have changed my weekend games and allowed me to last longer in competitive games.
