I have been training athletes for a long time now and the key to success of all athletes has to be attributed to a smart strength and conditioning program. Strength training exercises for tennis should focus in on power, speed, and quickness. All of these traits can be obtained with the initial implementation of one single hard hitting exercise known as the double arm kettlebell swing!
By now you may be familiar with the kettlebell. This ancient strength training device requires a knowledge of training that is dynamic in nature and will condition your body quicker than just about any other form of strength and conditioning training around. The double arm kettlebell swing is the base strength endurance lift that is performed with the kettlebell. This single lift incorporates hundreds of your muscles and is second to nothing when it comes down to strength training muscles for optimal performance in your tennis game! The swing is performed by you picking the kettlebell up with both arms and performing a technique known as the hip snap.
The hip snap is done by you constantly and fluently flexing and extending at both your hips and knees in order to create the necessary momentum to swing the kettlebell back and forth from between your legs up to chest level. This movement encompasses many muscles and strengthens areas ranging from your hips, glutes, hamstrings, shoulders, back, and core muscles which are all necessary for improving every area of your tennis game.
Take the time to get familiar with the kettlebell swing so you can move on to other more dynamic and challenging lifts with the kettlebell. Like I said, it is an art form. It is well worth the time and the double arm swing can be learned relatively quick. Remember that anyone can train hard, but only the champions train smart my friend!
