Tackle These Tennis Tips This Spring!
If you haven’t been practicing on indoor courts, it’s time to dust off your racket and get outdoors this spring. Before you even consider taking on a match, you’ll want to take these tennis tips to heart so you don’t wind up with an injury that will have you sitting with the spectators rather than swinging your heart out on the court.
– Tune up your technique
Those repetitive movements and swings need your attention now. Practice, practice, and practice some more.
– Don’t forget to warm up
And naturally, it’s important you warm up before all that practice too. This will help your muscles adapt to the movements again, and keep you from injuries.
– Inspect that equipment
Even when you’re just practicing ahead of a tennis season, you can’t do your best if your equipment isn’t up to par. Maybe it’s time for a new racket. Maybe your racket needs new strings. Or perhaps your tennis sneakers have seen better days and are in need of replacement. Now is the time to do a little spring cleaning for your tennis equipment and get it ready!
– Think about your tennis goals
Where do you envision yourself by the end of the season? If you’re a beginner, it might be helpful to take lessons. If you’re finding you’re feeling less enthusiastic about the sport, maybe you need to challenge yourself with more tournaments. This is the time to evaluate so you can elevate your game.
– Make fitness your priority
Don’t drop the ball this tennis season. As you know, it uses muscles that you don’t always use in everyday life. You’ll want to engage all those muscles and have them at their peak of performance so you can dominate on the court. Start now with a fitness routine that targets your tennis game.
You’ll need endurance exercises like running for at least 2 miles. You’ll also need to work on your flexibility and your core. Building these things up can help you thrive in the sport of tennis. Drills are a fun way to do things too that will incorporate basic exercises with the sport of tennis so you’ll find it more engaging.
Need help getting ready for tennis season? A personal trainer can help you tailor a fitness routine that will make it easier to achieve your goals in this sport. You may also want to think about a physiotherapist if you’ve had any previous injuries to keep everything harmonious. And of course, wouldn’t a massage be great to help prevent injuries and promote muscle recovery?
