If you take the game seriously, a tennis strength training program should be high on your agenda.

A well-designed tennis strength training program can work wonders for your game.

Long gone are the days when coaches believed all forms of strength training were detrimental to sports demanding finely-tuned skills.

While the wrong type of weight training CAN be a hindrance to your game, follow simple guidelines and the benefits can be immense…

  • Increased power in serves, forehands, backhands, volleys… in fact every type of shot.
  • Greater speed and acceleration around the court allowing you to get into position for more shots.
  • Improved muscular endurance helping you to maintain a high level of performance during tough rallies… even those at the end of the match.
  • Reduced occurrence of injuries from over-use and muscular imbalances in the body.
