See your tennis training in a brand new light. Tennis Anatomy, Second Edition, will show you how to dominate the competition by increasing strength, speed, and agility for more powerful serves and more accurate shots.
Emphasizing a movement-based approach to conditioning, Tennis Anatomy offers over 75 exercises designed to mimic the unique physical demands of the game and train the body as an integrated unit to maximize explosive power.
Each exercise offers step-by-step descriptions and full-color anatomical illustrations highlighting the muscles in action.

Illustrations of the active muscles for forehands, backhands, volleys, and serves show you how each exercise is fundamentally linked to tennis performance.
You’ll also find exercises aimed to protect the body from common tennis injuries and tips for proper recovery so you are always ready to ace the competition.
