Supine Hip Lifts

Supine Hip Lifts

The Supine Hip Lifts is a calisthenic training exercise to strengthen the core. Aside from strengthening the trunk flexor musculature, the supine hip lifts improve neuromuscular system efficiency, body control and flexibility. Due to the fact that the core is essential for enhanced kinetic chain efficiency and its importance during stroke production you should regularly...
Toe Touches

Toe Touches

Toe touches is a calisthenic core training exercise to strengthen the distal (lower) end of the trunk flexor musculature used during shots. Aside from strengthening the core, you can use the toe touches to improve neuromuscular system efficiency, body control and flexibility. A strong core is essential for efficient neuromuscular system function, which impacts how...

Russian Twist | Tennis Conditioning

The Russian Twist is a resistance training exercise to strengthen the core, particularly the musculature used during powerful shots. The Russian Twist engages the trunk lateral flexor and trunk rotator musculature. While you can strengthen the core, the Russian Twist also improves your body control and flexibility. Often times, the Russian Twist is part of...
Hip Flexor Stretch

Hip Flexor Stretch

The Hip Flexor Stretch can be used to correct tightness of the hip flexors; the stretching video demonstrates proper execution. The hip flexor stretch helps in reducing the risk of injury and aids in the muscle recovery process after long matches or practice session. Since most tennis players have tight hip flexors this stretch should...
Abductor Stretch & Oblique Stretch

Abductor Stretch & Oblique Stretch

The Abductor Stretch & Oblique Stretch focuses on improving flexibility of the hip abductors and trunk rotators; it is a two in one static stretching exercise. The focus is on improving flexibility of the hip abductors and obliques, thereby improving range of motion and minimizing the risk for injury. You should implement this oblique stretch...
Dynamic Cross Over Lunge Stretch with Heel Reach

Dynamic Cross Over Lunge Stretch with Heel Reach

The Dynamic Cross Over Lunge Stretch with Heel Reach warms up the leg and trunk musculature that you use during stroke production in tennis. The dynamic cross over lunge stretch with heel reach optimizes the respective musculature for explosive muscle action such as seen when hitting groundstrokes. In addition this lunge stretch reduces the risk...
Dynamic Lunge and Ankle Reach Stretch

Dynamic Lunge and Ankle Reach Stretch

The Dynamic Lunge and Ankle Reach Stretch warms up the musculature used when hitting groundstrokes in closed stance. The dynamic lunge and ankle reach stretch is a total body stretching exercise that you should include into your pre-match warm up routine because it prepares various muscle groups simultaneously. Its purpose is to prepare the musculature...
Lunge And Twist Core Stretch

Lunge And Twist Core Stretch

The Lunge and Twist Core Stretch warms up the musculature of the legs and core used during stroke production. The lunge and twist core stretch is a total body dynamic stretch that reduces the risk for injury by increasing muscle tissue temperature and improves flexibility and stability. If you want the full benefits associated with...
