Strength training for tennis involves strengthening the upper and lower body for maximum performance on the tennis court. This helps protect against injuries to the joints as well as build strength in your muscles. As the game of tennis becomes more intense so does the training needed off the court. Rock a tank and short or legging to feel your best during this workout!
Utilizing gym equipment and a jumprope is great for tennis cross training! Simply set up an interval circuit. Like you would have in a real match situation, this allows you to do quick intervals of different movements and keeps your body guessing. As long as your heart-rate is up high you are also getting the cardio aspect. We recommend a legging and tank top layered with a zip hoodie for this work out.
Swimming provides amazing aerobic conditioning as a switch up to court play. As a sport it is much easier on your joints not to mention therapeutic to be in the water. Don't let the calm water fool you, a few sets of laps and you will definitely be feeling it the next day!
Hot Yoga helps to improve flexibility, plain and simple. Not only does it mentally relax you while balancing your body, it lengthens your muscles and releases your joints. Many pros including Andy Murry swear by it - so it gets our vote! For this we recommend wearing a sports bra and short or legging to feel you best during this sweat induced hour.
