The leg warm up for advanced athletes consists of 5 dynamic stretching exercises to prepare neural pathways for explosive movements and decrease the risk for injury.

The selected exercises for the leg warm up for advanced athletes emulate movement patterns during tennis and target the major muscle groups.

Since the dynamic leg warm up consists of compound calisthenic exercise activating numerous muscle groups simultaneously you can also improve kinetic chain efficiency, body control and coordination.
