Training For Tennis Players Over 40

 


FIND OUT THE 5 MUST DO'S FOR PLAYERS "OVER 40"

Training for tennis over 40 can be challenging! For many players, the loss of energy and time makes it challenging. We need to also consider physically what happens as we age (Loss of muscle mass, aerobic capacity, and flexibility).

These factors alone will make it hard for even the seasoned player to deal with. So what can we do to combat these issues?

Read on for our “5 must do’s” for players over 40.

Before we get into our 5 must do’s, the first area we need to attack is the “Mindset” this is an area that I have found most players over 40 struggle with. Many people reside to the fact they are aging and “that's it”.

They keep doing the same things all the time, with no improvement (It is like watching a sinking ship). We cannot do much to stop the aging process but we can, by all means, do our best to slow it down and make the most of what we have.

Switching the mindset to a growth mindset is the first step to getting momentum, which will lead to physical gains. After 40 we should all still be aiming for improvement and growth (not living in the past) this is how we continue to enjoy what we do and train with purpose and passion.

Training appropriately should be the goal of anyone doing off-court tennis training. Training should always be age and experience specific. Remembering this is important to prevent tennis injuries and boost performance. Get your advice from the right sources and follow a plan suited for your specific needs.

What I have done is put together a list of “5 must do’s” for players over 40. These tennis exercises are specific for our needs and orientated around - Performance and Injury prevention. These tennis exercises for senior players have been inspired by our new program
“Over 40's - Strength, Movement & Mobility Program” check it out here.

We have had amazing results with players who have tested this out. I love the fact that players now have a specific program to follow that will give them motivation and guidance!

Check out the 5 must do’s. If you like what you see, jump on board with the new over 40s Tennis training program and be prepared to change how you feel, play and recover. I guarantee it will challenge you and help you out with your game.

1 - MOBILITY

Feel tight and restricted (shoulders, ankles, hips, and back) having a hard time stretching out for wide balls, cannot get down for those low volley’s or maybe you feel like you are always going to pull a muscle.

2 - ACTIVATION

Having reoccurring injuries, feel like you are not using the right muscles during play, slow to start, getting sore all the time.

THE EXERCISES BELOW IN THE VIDEO CAN HELP WITH THESE PROBLEMS  


3 - BRAKING OR DECELERATION

Finding it hard to slow down on-court, feel like you cannot get in the right position, joints (ankles, knees, back) are hurting when slowing down. 

4 - STRENGTH

Feel like you are always carrying injuries, lost power on your serve and groundstrokes, balance and coordination has diminished, the body is sore after training and find it hard to back up the next day.

5 - CHANGE OF DIRECTION

Feel slow around the court, find it hard pushing off to change direction, reacting slowly to the ball, feel that one step slower than your opponent.
