Anthropometric measurements BH, BW, BMI and Astrand test were developed. Results; showed a positive value of progress from Pre-test to Post-test of volleyball players. There was a correlation between the maximum heart rate per minute and the maximum intake 021 / min, Maximum heart rate per minute and MaxV02 intake ml / kg / min in the post test, which showed a negative correlation, but the results are not significant at p?0.05. The comparison of the test before and after did not mark a significant. Conclusion: It was noted that the training of volleyball players was aimed at strength. Strength training has made the only positive contribution to this type of improvement. Our study shows that the correlation between strength training and performance improvement of maximum VO2max results of laboratory values compared to the good part of them were significant. The impact of strength training can not be said to be a primary indicator but a secondary indicator in VO2max performance.
