INCREASED SPINAL FLEXIBILITY EQUALS MORE POWERFUL STROKES

According to Stephanie Harmazy, elite4tennis “With increased thoracic mobility, the range of rotation through this section increases which profoundly increases power production in the strokes...therefore it is critical to focus on the mobility of the thoracic spine to aid in adequate rotational range of motion that plays a significant role in power production of the forehand and backhand strokes.

Focusing on a regime to continuously improve the range of motion in the thoracic spine should be incorporated into every tennis players off court training program. Thoracic mobility is often overlooked in many programs, however when these exercises are frequently repeated the tennis player will notice tremendous results on court".

ENOUGH SAID.

As an athlete, your body needs to be balanced front to back, top to bottom, side to side. What this means is you must have equally responsive and strong muscles in the back as you do on the front. Having ripped abs but weak glutes is not balanced. Neither are strong biceps and weaker triceps. Or, the right side of your body stronger than the left side.

Without good muscle balance you will never make it to the next level.


THE VERY FIRST THING TO DO WHEN TRYING TO ATTAIN BALANCE IS TO HAVE AN ALIGNED SPINE

It does not make sense to build muscle on a crooked frame. Crookedness includes a rounded upper back, too far forward head, a flat, or over-arched back. It also means tilting off to one side.

Align the spine first, then add muscle mass.
