As winter thaws and spring is upon us, tennis players are ready to hit the courts!
Over 5 years ago, physical therapist and tennis professional Todd Ellenbecker provided a great post for us on special exercises for tennis players, Upper Extremity Plyometrics for Tennis Players.
“Plyometric” exercises are commonly used in lower body work-outs, but are also valuable for upper body training as well.
These exercises are still commonly used today both in rehabilitation and sports training, and utilize the TheraBand Soft Weight. Dr. Ellenbecker’s research has shown moderate-to-high levels of muscle activation in the rotator cuff and scapular stabilizers with these exercises.
