Perfect your preparation for your next match! Get your muscles ready quickly--and correctly--for tennis training and competition using a dynamic warm-up. Drawing from the latest research, training expert Mark Verstegen demonstrates how to prepare the body for forward and backward movements, side-to-side movements, and variable all-court movements in three dynamic warm-up routines you can use right out of the box. By regularly incorporating a dynamic warm-up into your tennis training, you will improve your movement efficiency and overall play. The three routines in this DVD serve as a great starting point for developing a challenging conditioning program.
Raise your on-court performance with the Dynamic Tennis Warm-Ups DVD, tested by the best players in the game at USTA training centers and Athletes’ Performance training facilities.
Human Kinetics DVDs are coded for universal playback and can be played in all regions of the world.
