Tennis Plyometric Training: Optimizing Neural Pathways

Tennis Plyometric Training: Optimizing Neural Pathways

Tennis plyometric training focuses on optimizing neural pathways for maximum power output by maximizing contact transition speed. During tennis plyometric training the emphasis is on optimizing neural pathways, where the athlete accelerates the speed of the movement so that it almost becomes reflexive in nature. To do this the resistance has to be lower than...
