Perform Anti-Rotation Exercises
It’s important to have a “go-to” tennis fitness exercise as part of your off court training.
A lot of players have some kind of training routine, but are probably doing the wrong kind exercises especially when it comes to strengthening the core.
A lot of people end up doing a lot of “rotation” type core exercises. They may help some, but I’m a big fan of performing doing “anti-rotation” core exercises that teaches the body to feel more stable.
One tennis fitness exercise that helps you stabilize your body in the most efficient manner is the Pallof Press.
Create Stability In Your Core Like Nadal
Use this tennis fitness exercise routine instead of rotation type exercises where you mimic swinging a racquet will give you much better results.
If you look at Rafa Nadal reaching out for wide balls, you’ll notice that he can flick a very powerful shot back without rotating his body. Instead he focuses on having tremendous stability through his core as he reaches out for the ball.
You can train the same way with your tennis fitness exercise adding the Paloff Press to your program.
