Dynamic Warm-Up and Flexibility

Dynamic warm-up and flexibility training is an essential element of any pre-practice or pre-competition routine and helps prepare the body for the demands of today’s tennis game. An effective warm-up does five very important things for tennis players:

 

  1. Increases body temperature allowing muscles to work more efficiently.

  2. Gets the heart and lungs ready for vigorous activity.

  3. Stretches muscles actively, preparing them for the force's experiences during tennis.

  4. Ingrains proper movement patterns and the coordination needed in tennis.

  5. Wakes up the nervous system and gets the brain talking with the muscles.
