🚨New Drill Alert 🚨 (That’s right, again!) • We love any drill that combines conditioning, positioning, and racquet speed. This drill once again employs all three of these categories. • Drill: 20 balls fed from near the net post alternating between a swinging forehand volley and a scissor kick overhead. • Focus: 1) Weight transfer is key for this drill. Make sure the legs are loaded to explode into the swinging volley. With the overhead, weight needs to be loaded on the back leg before driving into the scissor kick and landing on the front leg at the end of the motion. 2) Keep the ball in front of you for both shots in order to allow the racquet to come over the ball for control. 3) Don’t fall in love with one of your shots and stare at it! There are 20 balls being fed to you. Get prepared! • Feed Cred: @justinrose98 🎾 Cred: @wisehaventenniscenter Hitting Cred: @philmyerstennis • Follow @volleyllamatennis for fresh tips and instruction weekly!
Athlete Spotlight : Part 2/2 🔘 Youth Training 101 : Start with Bodyweight Movement Integrity 🔘 Here we have Michael who we started working with back in October of last year. 🔘 His primary sport is Tennis 🎾 plus he is part of a State Champion Robotics squad. Needless to say the kid is super intelligent and has a great understanding of biomechanics at a very early age. 🤖 Our task was to prepare Michael for his increasingly demanding tennis season while teaching him the proper techniques of a sport specific warmup and overall strength. He practiced these techniques and strategies, on his own btw, to consistently improve in his competitions. We are very proud of Michael and his amazing effort each time he came for his sessions. 🤝 Below you will find the 6 main Bodyweight movements that we focus on for each athlete: 1. Squat (Hip Up/Down), Level 5/10 2. Push Up (Horizontal Push), Level 2/10 3. Front Fold(Spinal Flexion), Level 1/10 4. Pull Up (Vertical Pull), Level 4/10 5. Bridge (Spinal Extension), Level 2/10 6. Crow (Overhead Press), Level 2/10 👊 #youthtraining#bodyweighttraining#pushup#pullup#squat#crow#handstand#corestrength#hipmobility#spine#tennis#robotics#privilege#athletespotlight#tennistraining • •• ••• Music cred to @remshotbeats who puts together customized mixes for us.

He’s the king of funk, a coach, a mentor, a family man, a brother and the worlds best dad! Thank you so much for all you do @ctk.25 and setting an example of what being a good person is all about! Happy Father’s Day!
Great practice this Sunday morning with current college player. ✔️#TennisTime 🎾💪⚡️It was pretty windy 💨(20mph+ as usual) and pretty hot 🔥(90 degrees+ in the morning), so most practice points were short. 📝 Nothing spectacular this time, just efficient🕹. In this kind of weather, I recommend keeping it simple. Keep your first serve percentage high. Stay away from the lines (how far, depends on your playing level)🎯. Generally, use topspin shots with the wind behind you; use slice, flat, and drop shots with the wind against you from the baseline. Come up to the net often with the wind behind you. Use your lobs well when your opponent comes up to the net; its pretty hard to hit an overhead smash in the middle of a tornado 🌪 and with the sun ☀️ in your eyes 😎. Also , make them volley low with the wind against you, and sometimes make them volley high(backhand) with the wind behind you; when your opponent comes up to the net (if you can't pass him with the first shot)💭. Remember, the wind affects both players the same💨. Whoever is able to adapt best, will usually end up winning the match. 🎥 Here are a few practice points. 💥 I hope you have/had a great workout/practice and a great day! ✌️ ---For more Tennis, Fitness, and Nutrition Posts 🚀🔝 Follow @coachrobertodeleon 💯🔥
Tennis elbow is typically caused by the repetitive and aggressive hitting of thousands of tennis balls. Fluendo Will reduce up to 85% of racket vibrations, therefore limiting the risks of forearm injury. Sounds incredible? Watch the video now!
TREINOS DE PERNAS PARTE 1 Para aqueles que curtem fazer um trabalho de pernas e buscam uma boa performance de pernas, segue mais uma dica do professor de Educação física @vanderlei.garrido nunca deixe de treinar pernas, pois são demorados os ganhos, mas com o tempo eles veem... Com Muito suor e dor eles são conquistados. Os músculos requisitados durante a cadeira extensora são basicamente os que compõem o quadríceps: reto femoral; vasto lateral; vasto medial; vasto intermédio. Mas eles não são trabalhados de maneira uniforme. O reto femoral é o músculo que recebe a maior atenção durante o exercício. E o quadríceps é composto de mais músculos. Mas não esqueçam se o objetivo for conquistar pernas grandes, precisamos incluir outros exercícios no treino (além da extensora). Isso também é importante para evitar desiquilíbrios musculares que poderão causar lesões no futuro. Muitas pessoas (que não querem treinar pernas) incluem apenas a extensora no treino pensando que estão ao menos evitando que as pernas não sejam completamente esquecidas. Além disso é essencial que o exercício esteja sendo executado da maneira correta para evitar problemas na articulação do joelho. Sempre lembrando que devemos pedir ajuda de um profissional capacitado da área... Bom agora que já viram um pedaço do meu treino de hoje, agora corra pra gym e faça um bom treino de pernas... Ah não esqueça de deixar um like ou um comentário se você gostou da dica. Ps:fique ligado em novos treinos e novas dicas aqui direto da Suíça 🇨🇭 pra vocês.

Do your ankles or knees cave inwards when exercising? Or how about your lower back rounding out or tightening up?? There tends to be a lot of emphasis on social media on keeping the knees out and strengthening the hips abductors and external rotators(too much emphasis). But one common weakness we find with a lot of people struggling with various hip/knee/ankle issues is that the adductors(groin muscles) get tight or weak. Most people would say the only function of the groin muscles is to close the legs. But these muscles play many other important roles besides just for morality purposes. (😆) This can’t only be fixed from stretching. The groin muscles are very tied into hamstring function and function very similar to the hammies. Most of the time being able to eccentrically load the groin muscles(wide stances) and the hammies(squated position) while keeping a neutral pelvis and spine is the stressful situation these guys need to get stronger at. The groin muscles also need to be able to work in conjunction with the lower abdominals. This is a 1 2 punch combo. The lower ab groin muscle combo is the link into our anterior oblique chains that we use in rotation and not having excess anterior pelvic tilt. Inefficient oblique chain=inefficient rotation. Try the exercises above to strengthen all those needy groins out there!!!
