Tennis Training...Quick Tennis Workout for Strength/Stability

Hey everybody,

I hope you are having a wonderful day wherever you are...once again in LA it is about 75 and sunny...hard to beat! I just through together another tennis training video for you. This is a quick 12 minute 4 exercise total body circuit. 

It is another example of a sequence that uses compound tennis exercises in a functional way that will enhance tennis performance. We want to train the way we play...multiple muscles and joints working together in a synergistic manner being held together by your core.

Here is the tennis workout for today:

*Do exercises 1-4 in a rest between. After all 4 are completed, rest 30-60 seconds and repeat 3x.
**Do 8-12 reps of each

1. Medicine Ball Lunge w/Torso Twist

2. Dumbbell Chest Fly on Stability Ball

3. Dumbbell Rotational Shoulder Press

4. Medicine Ball Figure 8s

In all the above exercises, make sure to activate/engage your core. That is try to simulate trying to stop the flow of urine before you begin. I know it sounds weird but this is a cueing technique to get people to begin to connect to the deep internal abdominal muscles.

For standing exercises, make sure to bend your knees slightly to protect your low back and train your body to engage you legs for more strength and support...just as if you were in the middle of a point on the court.

Until next time, train on purpose and play with passion!

Quick Tennis Workout For The Weekend Warrior

So you want to improve your tennis play.  You've been hearing about the importance of the off-court tennis workout for on-court improvement.  You know what the inside of the gym looks like but you haven't been there in years.  

You pick up the latest book on tennis conditioning and low and behold, it reads like a high school text book on trigonometry.  No joke, the reality is that most books and videos are put together for the highly competitive junior/collegiate athlete/or professional player.  They outline wonderfully effective periodized programs that most certainly will get results...if only you didn't have a full time job and a family of 4 or 5 to be concerned about.

There is an alternative.  The reality is you can still greatly improve your on-court fitness and performance by doing 2 to 3 full body workouts per week that might last you 20-30 minutes tops.  Listen, to my mind this is something anyone who is serious about there game and their health can find time to do.

Here is an example:

A.  Warm-Up...2-3 minutes on the treadmill or bike.

B. Full Body Circuit: Do 2-3 x, rest 60 sec between circuits

1. 8-12 Dumbbell Squat with a Shoulder Press 
(Targets: Legs, Shoulders, Triceps)
2. 8-12 Dumbbell Chest Fly on Stability Ball  
(Targets: Chest, Core, Shoulders)
3. 8-12 One Leg Cable Row with an Anterior Reach 
(Targets: Legs, Back and Biceps)
4. 20-30 Russian Twist with Medicine Ball 
(Targets: Abdominals in Rotational Plane)
5. 20-30 Mountain Climbers 
(Targets: Core)
6. 15-20 Supermans
(Targets: Low Back)

C.. Cool Down Stretch...5-10 minutes
*Target the hamstrings, quads, low back, shoulders

There you have of gazillions of fast but effective full body tennis training sessions in the gym.  I hope you get in there and give it a try.

Until next time, train with passion and play with purpose,

Andy Roddick's RUN to the Aussie Open Semis

So the Australian Open is almost over and to me on of the best stories of the tournament was Andy Roddick's run to the semis. The key word being RUN. I say this because noticeably improved was his movement around the court and that translated to better results for him.

Why the improvement?

Quite simply in my estimation it had to do with the fact that he lost 15 pounds in the "off-season". Under the watchful eyes of his new coach, Larry Stefanki, Roddick busted his butt with an intense training regimen, ultimately designed with tennis exercises to make him quicker around the court.

15 pounds and greatly improved endurance later, the guy reaches the Semis of the Aussie Open (only to run into arguably the greatest player ever- FEDERER) with 2009 looking brighter than ever for him. Admittedly, I have never been a huge Roddick fan but I really admire him for making this type of change.

Yeah, about a year or so ago he was on the cover of Men's Fitness with biceps bulging but his play on-court was suffering. While Nadal can get away with a more muscular physique, it is not the ideal for fluid shot making and graceful, effortless court coverage.

Moral of the story, if you want to move like a cat around the court and you find yourself carrying a number of extra lbs, whether it comes in the form of hulking muscles or unwanted fat, hire a trainer or connect with me to create a tennis training program that will lean you out and tone you up!
