Diet for Tennis

October 10th, 2017

Is there such a thing?

There are so many sources out there, so many “healthy diets” it can easily confuse any one of us.  The key to any diet is to make it more of a life plan!  Once you have figured out what works for you whether it’s low carbs, high protein or low fat etc.. Everyone’s body is different.  You have to figure out what works for you!  At the end of the day a lot of diets are just common sense.  If you want to lose weight and fat, make sure you are in a calorie intake deficit.  If you want to put on weight and muscle make sure you are at a calories surplus.

Rest is trial and error!

Crossfit and Tennis

Does doing Crossfit help tennis players?

Actually doing cross-fit might be the best thing for tennis players for the following reasons:

  • It focuses on leg strength
  • It strengthens the stamina and endurance
  • It works on the long twitch muscle fibers and short ones
  • Hits the core in almost every crossfit move
  • Works on the agility which is very much needed for tennis players

Training Intervals

June 26th, 2014

Do you want to improve your agility and endurance on the tennis court?

Running intervals will help you achieve that endurance your looking for, try doing 30 seconds running as fast as you can and then walk for 30 seconds.  Do this 6 times.

Repeat every other day!  Good Luck

Crossfit

Does Crossfit help my tennis game?

 

Let’s ask ourselves what makes a good tennis player?  It’s the skills, talent, dedication and lots of practice.  The most overlooked factor is fitness,  being fit is the most crucial thing in tennis.  You can always outlast your opponent by being fit.  You can manage your shots more efficiently and you don’t lose your good form.  Crossfit is an intense workout that allows people to get in better shape quick.  The fact that you are training against time and taking less breaks between sets, allows you to get into much better cardiovascular shape.  No need to do cardio if you do crossfit.  It combines lifting weights with cardio simultaneously.

I would highly recommend trying crossfit if you want to improve on your stamina and be prepared to play 5 setters with no problem.
