Tennis Conditioning: Ballistics – Heavy Bomb Throw

The Heavy Bomb Throw may be implemented to improve power; the focus is on explosiveness, rather than the total amount of resistance being used. Emphasis is on the speed of the action and control of the body. The Heavy Bomb Throw is a ballistic exercise, which focuses on developing neural pathways for sagittal movement, explosive...
Tennis Conditioning: Optimizing Explosiveness via Ballistics

Tennis Conditioning: Optimizing Explosiveness via Ballistics

The ballistic exercises presented focus on improving the athlete’s explosiveness. During a ballistic exercise the athlete accelerates an object faster than necessary, moving its center of mass quickly from point A to point B; the velocity of the required movement needs to be high. More precisely, ballistics consists of a concentric acceleration phase and an...
Tennis Conditioning: Plyometrics – Jump Lunge

Tennis Conditioning: Plyometrics – Jump Lunge

The Jump Lunges may be implemented to improve power and the ability to move, react, and change direction in a more efficient manner; it also aids in the development of balance. The exercise has been introduced to promote development of sagittal plane quickness. The Jump Lunge is a plyometric exercise, which focuses on improving hip...
