Synopsis:

Tennis is a dynamic, explosive sport that requires a wide range of skills and a high level of fitness. To play at ones peak, form and skill must work hand in hand with physical ability. This book offers exercises for building a rock-solid physical foundation from which a player can develop a winning game. Specific drills are provided to improve multidirectional speed, balance and agility, as well as strength and hand-eye coordination. The easy-to-follow, clearly illustrated drills will help players at all levels improve their game. Developed by top coaches and players, these exercises provide a complete conditioning program that incorporates aerobics, plyometrics and functional training. Each exercise is described in terms of how to do it, which part of the body it works and, most importantly, how it improves a players game: from faster serves and more powerful ground strokes to sharper volleys and perfectly placed passing shots.
