Abstract

The participants in this study were placed in a live volleyball attack approach with live sets given to best stimulate a volleyball match. This allowed us to look at live jump-landings and how they differ with various set locations. These set locations will include in front and behind hitter creating flexed and extended trunk positions and, on the inside, and outside of the dominant hitting arm creating lateral trunk movements. Then, look at how different trunk positions produced by different set locations affect landing biomechanics. Volleyball is a noncontact sport, and because of this, there is not a dramatic difference between practice and game intensities and injury rates. Therefore, the data found within this study will apply to both a practice and a game setting. This study is going to examine what happens when the body is forced not to land in an ideal trunk position and how that affects the stress given on the ACL
