Ok, you can show them off, but thats about all gym muscles are good for. What is more important in tennis fitness is to be able to pack power into your shots throughout a match that may last for many hours. Thus, your focus should be on muscular endurance and reactive power. For increased muscular endurance, you should opt for exercises such as squats, lunges, biceps curls, triceps extensions and chest presses. For increased reactive power, you should try exercises such as skipping, shock jumps, ankle jumps and sprints. AnaerobicTrainingversusAerobic Training: You need both in your tennis fitness regime. Aerobic training focuses on moderate-intensity workouts over a long duration. Work on your aerobic training to increase your stamina to stay strong over the course of a long match. However, a point is normally characterized by quick, high-intensity movements. To become quicker around the court, focus on anaerobic training. Focus on Flexibility: Running, stopping, starting, hitting balls that are almost out of reach, and doing it all without hurting yourself requires integrating a flexibility module into your tennis fitness training. To increase your flexibility we recommend a combination of static and dynamic stretching. Focus onFootwork: Footwork drills are an essential part of fitness for tennis.
