Late September Updates (off-season plans)

Hey guys,

It’s been awhile since I’ve put together a blog post. Just wanted to update you all with whats going on. So currently after the 2015 season I ended up being ranked 83rd on USABEACHRANKING.org. This is the beginning for me. I was chosen as the athlete of the month for NuGo Nutrition bars. I also became an ambassador for Ultima Replenisher to keep me hydrated through my workouts and trainings. Within the next few weeks I will be releasing a Volleyball Vertical Training ebook to give away/sell so I can hopefully earn some cash for next season. Be on the lookout for that product 🙂

Today is the begginning of my official off season as I’m typing this I’m about to head to the gym for my workout. I have some plans in order to see more success in the 2016 season.

– Gain 6-10 inches on my vertical

– Work on my arm swing/approach

– Read some books on mental strength

– Look to find some sponsors so I can live somewhat more secure (it’s tough as a volleyball player)

I’m headed to the gym but will add more to this post I just wanted to give ya’ll an update. Let me know in the comments if there are any suggestions you have for me.

PS: I put together another YouTube video, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted on there but I’m planning on posting a little more this off season. Check out the video below:

 

Goals for 2014

Hi friends,

Goals are much more successful when they are written down or in my case blogged. I will continue to add and check off if I have attained these goals. My ultimate goal of 2014 is to get in better shape and to stabilize my joints (shoulders, knees) and keep myself from getting hurt in the future. Another goal I have is to get my AAA in CBVA. I’ve been so close with two thirds and one 5th. I have the confidence that I will get it done this year. My next goal is to make the HP top 4 in U21 so I can get the opportunity to train with some great coaches, learn the game and travel to another country to play beach volleyball. This will be an incredible experience that I really hope to get. Qualifying for a main draw in the AVP is another one of my goals. Check out this post to see my first experience in Huntington. As well as finishing a 9th or better in an NVL. Click here to see the post from my 17th in the Hermosa NVL. Check the list below.

Goals for 2014:

Stability in joints, better shape

  • AAA in CBVA – completed May 11th, 2014
  • Make Top 4 U21 HP USA Volleyball National Team
  • Move to California
  • Qualify for an AVP Event
  • Place 5th or better in a CBVA Open – completed May 11th, 2014 in Long Beach
  • Place 9th or better in an NVL Event
  • Some private beach lessons
  • Win every tournament in Arizona
  • Learn more mental parts about the game
  • Start eating better.
  • 40 inch vertical in the sand
  • Film in every tournament and most practices

I will continue to add more to these list as I think of them.

Stay in touch,

Christian Honer
