INCORPORATING STRETCHING WITH TENNIS
Extract from Page 48 of “Complete conditioning for Tennis” by E. Paul Roetert and Todd S. Ellenbecker with the USTA.
- Perform a general body warm-up (3 to 5 minutes) to increase tissue temperature, possibly including a slow jog, Jumping Jacks, and so on.
- Perform a dynamic stretching sequence, progressively increasing the range of motion and velocity of movement.
- Play tennis or perform a vigorous workout.
- During the cool-down, perform static stretching of the areas that are particularly tight to prevent muscle soreness and gain more flexibility.
