Tennis: Alternate shoulders on the side

Sportplan has been very helpful in guiding me through my first year...
Bill, Newly qualified coach

DESCRIPTION

  • Player keeps weights in hands on the sides of the body.
  • Using shoulder muscles player alternates lifting arms up and recovering to the starting position.
  • It is important to control the movement all the time.

COACHING POINTS

In this drill, player strengthens shoulder muscles that are crucial for tennis. Many injuries happen in this area so daily strengthening and prevention should be a routine for any serious tennis player. It is important to use the correct weight - too much will make the player work with poor technique and compensate with different body parts, making the exercise ineffective.
