Tennis Tune Up !

Tennis Tune Up !

So tell me Victoria, What’s so different about tennis that I need a tennis-specific conditioning program? The answer is that tennis involves an amazing number of muscle groups, each of which makes a specific contribution to performance of the required skills.

In tennis you know the first thing you have to do is get to the ball. By reducing foot contact time, you’ll cover the court more quickly and efficiently and get to balls you never dreamed possible. The following [applying speed to strength] exercises will make you a little stronger and a lot faster:

Tennis Specific Exercises
Foot Speed – Jump Rope, Knee Ups, Stairs

Legs – Squat, Lunges, Bench Step Ups

Abs – Crunches, Hanging Leg Raises, V-ups, Oblique (twisting side to side with light bar)

Upper Body – Follow the total body workouts I have listed in previous weeks focusing on the shoulders to keep them strong and injury free.

Conditioning – To really get your game going, don’t forget to hit the treadmill, bike or your favorite cardio machine 3 times a week. Good Cardiovascular conditioning will make your game a lot easier on your body.
