I play singles and definitely warm up volleys & overheads since I S&V and get to the net as often as possible.
I can still practice overheads even on poorly fed lobs - prob more realistic anyway lol. What is even more common is that people can't hit the ball decently & consistently to warm up more then a few volleys in a row. It got better when I got to 4.0 but still hard to warm up volleys well. I have discovered, though, that the people who can't place the ball consistently to warm up volleys usually can't place passing shots that well either.
