INCORPORATING STRETCHING WITH TENNIS

Extract from Page 48 of “Complete conditioning for Tennis” by E. Paul Roetert and Todd S. Ellenbecker with the USTA.

  1. Perform a general body warm-up (3 to 5 minutes) to increase tissue temperature, possibly including a slow jog, Jumping Jacks, and so on.
  2. Perform a dynamic stretching sequence, progressively increasing the range of motion and velocity of movement.
  3. Play tennis or perform a vigorous workout.
  4. During the cool-down, perform static stretching of the areas that are particularly tight to prevent muscle soreness and gain more flexibility.
