Building strength for tennis

Medicine Ball/Jumping Tennis Exercises

On this page you will find a series of medicine ball and jump exercises. Select the exercise and enjoy the instructional video clip

Common teaching points for all of the exercises found in the dynamic and static stretching menus include:

1. Always maintain good posture

2. Work within the range of movement that you can manage

3. Increase the range of movement gradually

4. If you are at all unsure of your health, or if you have any injuries, it is recommended that you consult a doctor before embarking on a new fitness-training regime.

Warming Up: Always precede stretching with a good warm up. You should wear a tracksuit to aid raising your body temperature and you should try to get to the level where you start sweating. Depending on the temperature that you are working out in this will probably take at least 5 minutes.
