The Importance of Cardio Training for Optimal Tennis Performance

  1. 1. THE IMPORTANCE OF CARDIO TRAINING FOR OPTIMAL TENNIS PERFORMANCE By Douglas Ebenstein
  2. 2. Introduction  Douglas Ebenstein is a talented real estate developer and the president of Eden Center, Inc., a successful corporation owning and operating the famous Eden Center, a Vietnamese-American shopping center in Northern Virginia. For recreation, Douglas Ebenstein enjoys playing tennis competitively. Actively involved with his local tennis community, Doug Ebenstein serves as a member of the St. Andrews Country Club Tennis Committee.
  3. 3. Tennis and Performance  Serious tennis competitors understand that performance on the court depends not just on practicing essential tennis skills, but also on serious training in the gym. The best tennis players dedicate significant time to cardiovascular training, which has a tremendous impact on several aspects of performance, from speed to endurance.
  4. 4. Conclusion  When it comes time for cardio workouts, tennis players should focus on certain crucial elements. To build reaction time, players should invest in fast-action drills that challenge them to move quickly for extended periods of time. Sprints and interval running can quickly increase a player’s base speed. Activities like biking and swimming help build endurance. Whenever possible, tennis players should undertake cardio training outdoors to mimic the conditions experienced on the court.
