Building a strong core is crucial in helping you maintain stamina, have good form, and prevent injury while playing tennis. Here's how you can train for it.
Arm & Leg Extensions
Equipment: Yoga mat and recommend being in front of a mirror.
Instructions: Get on all fours with your knees on the mat and palms on the mat. Make sure you have a bit of a rounded back. Take the opposit arm and leg out and extend and bring both back in using your abs. Do 15 reps on each side (30 reps in total) and 3 reps to get full benefits.
Stability Ball Tuck
Instructions: Start in a high plank, with wrists under shoulders, core engaged, and top of feet resting on the ball. Keep hips level and use core to pull knees toward chest, rolling the ball toward you. Straighten legs to return to start. We recommend 30 reps and 3 sets.
Equipment: Yoga mat
Instructions: Start in a high plank, with wrists under shoulders, core engaged on the mat. Keep hips level and use core to pull one knee in towards your chest, side twist with one arm in and bring out and flyaway. We recommended closing out with this as it not only engages your core but also is a great stretch! We recommend 10 reps on each side and 2 sets.
