Why tennis players should lift weights
Strength training is crucial for tennis player .
You should include exercises that
improve your agility and
increase your power.
Tennis places a lot of stress on your muscles and joints. The repetitive nature of tennis serves leads to shoulder pain, knee pain is a common injury due to the repetitive nature of jumping to initiate a serve . Injuries are common due to the highly REPETITIVE nature of the sport , you use the same muscles consistently over extended periods of time .
HOW WEIGHTLIFTING help prevent tennis injuries?
Well, stronger muscles around the joints ensure greater stability against the high impact that is involved with hitting the ball and the constant twisting , rotating, multi-directional stop and start motions on the court .
Players want immediate power results and don’t take the time to build a good strength foundation that will dramatically help with their power output. You cannot expect to generate a faster powerful serve, if you don’t have a solid strength foundation.
Because tennis is a unilateral sport it is very important that we train this area. If your program is only performing bilateral exercises, your dominant arm will tend to take more of the load , leading to muscle imbalances for the long terms .
