Training Programme - Tennis The sport I have chosen to focus on and create a training programme for is Tennis. I regularly attend training sessions twice a week. Each week we tend to focus on a particular aspect of the game such as the serve. I then carry out activities in order to improve my serve such serving into the corner of the box 4 times then I'd do the same aiming for an ace. Fitness plays a vital role in Tennis, and in this programme I will be working mainly on the endurance side. However I am pretty active as I d either run or cycle every night. I usually do high intensity cycling which I do for 45 minutes keeping the rate at which I am cycling at around 80 - 85 rpm.

Conclusion

These consist of lunges to reach the ball, usually for a drop shot or a drive. Also I will be practising serves to get the movement right and will do little activities such as tossing the ball up and aiming it to bounce on the racket head. I will also set up courses that involve changing direction in order to increase agility. Also I will train aerobically, to do this I will use the Fartlek method as when you change direction you are constantly changing speed to reach a fast or slow ball. Progression - I will steadily increase the amount of training after a period of time. Overload - I am going to increase the duration of my training session in order to get fitter and improve on my skills.

I would also not stretch as far on the lunges to prevent injury. ...read more.
