Tip of the Week (Coach Sam): Off-Court Fitness Training June 02 2015, 12 Comments
If you are looking to take your tennis game to the next level or just want to enjoy playing for longer, then what you do off the court in terms of fitness can make a huge difference to your game.
At Anyone For Tennis, we believe that tennis is a whole body sport with a major focus on leg and core strength, along with speed agility and stamina. We recommend circuit training that involves exercises that fire up the muscles used in tennis.
Here is a beginner body weight circuit to get the ball rolling:
- Squats - 20
- Lunges - 20
- Planks - 30 secs to 1min
- Skipping - 1 min
- Wall Sit - 1 to 2mins
- Mountain Climbers - 50
- Burpees - 10 to15
- Court Sprints
By adding in fitness training 1-2 times a week, you will notice a huge difference in your game and get more satisfaction and enjoyment from being able to play your shots with correct technique when it comes down to crunch time.
Professional tennis players are some of the fittest athletes on the planet. So put the hard work in and the results will happen.
