|Static Stretching for Injury Prevention EBook $2.99
6,480 words, PDF
Flexibility training is possibly the least popular and the most underrated element of tennis fitness training. Even though you might have heard a lot of contradicting opinions about the importance of stretching in the injury prevention, it is obvious that the flexibility of the muscles and joints plays an important roll in any athletic movement. The muscles that are not tight can move more efficiently and in a bigger range of motion resulting in better performance and less injuries, because the limb can move further before an injury would occur. A flexible athlete is a supple athlete. With better flexibility your movement and agility on the court will improve. Another benefit of flexibility training is that the stretched muscles get more relaxed, and with relaxed muscles, it is easier to learn new skills. Your body awareness will increase and that itself will help with your movement and performance.
|Myofascial Release for Injury Prevention eBook $2.99
6,040 words, PDF
Myofascial release is a technique where you “massage” and stretch the fascia, so it will return to its original soft and subtle texture. As a result, the stress on the surrounding tissues will decrease and your injury will go away. You can seek a professional who specializes in myofascial release or you can use this technique on yourself with help of a foam ball (that you can purchase below). This myofascial release booklet will teach you how to help yourself, especially if you have issues with chronic injuries. Finding and massaging away the trigger points, and performing myofascial release regularly will prolong your athletic career, increase the functionality of your muscles and decrease the injuries that you suffer. Your performance and tennis game will improve dramatically.

|Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation EBook $2.99

Tennis is a hard sport on your wrists, elbows, shoulders, and knees. However, is it really a problem of the sport, or could it be something else? Most of the time, the athlete’s body is already dysfunctional from the lifestyle that we live, and the sporting activity pushes it over the edge, which we would eventually encounter anyway. If you feel that you are developing pain symptoms of repetitive motions, you need to think about the exercises to stabilize your joints, rather then to sedate yourself and your joints with medications that only mask the underlying problem. In this ebook you will find many helpful exercises that will re-balance your body and prevent future overuse injuries and pains. In case of an acute injury, you will find some useful rehabilitation exercises to get you back in training as soon as possible.
|Agility and Performance EBook $2.99
6,100 words, PDF
Footwork is the key to great tennis, and yet, so many players neglect this fact. If you have an excellent stroke technique, but you cannot get to the ball on time and be balanced, it is not going to be a consistently good shot. The time that you spend on the court moving is significantly more compared to the time that you spend hitting the ball. If you really want to improve your tennis game, start working on your footwork. This will improve your speed and fitness at the same time, and you will become a better player almost immediately. Improving your footwork will also develop your agility, coordination, and balance, which is extremely important for higher levels of play. Additionally, you will learn more about the importance of sleep, hydration, nutrition and eye and brain exercises.

The results are similar to getting a deep tissue massage. My second favorite is the Theracane that allows me to reach all the otherwise unreachable areas of my body, and push and dig deep to release those pesky trigger points. The Travel Roller is sweet too... and the Rumble Roller is rough, for hardcore athletes.
