Tennis: Injury-free dominant hand

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

DESCRIPTION

The player kneels down and and blocks resistance band using left hand. The player takes straight dominant arm up to the shoulder level and comes back. The player also should maintain a straight back.

COACHING POINTS

In this drill, the player works on strengthening shoulder muscles. Many injuries in tennis are related to dominant shoulder because faster pace of the game and many serves put a lot of stress on this area. Young players tend to hit backhand volley using 2 hands because they don't have enough strength to perform this stroke with one. This exercise prevents shoulder injuries as it also prepares players to be able to hit backhand volley/slice in the near future.
