This book is not a "work out" or fitness book. It is a stroke and game play improvement book, which incorporates specialized strength and flexibility exercises. When a stroke deficiency is determined (based on a biomechanical analysis of the stroke), a specific exercise or exercises that are based on the needs of the player are prescribed. They help to modify and improve the stroke so that technique, and as a result, total execution is improved. An example of how strength impacts technique can be seen in young children when they use two hands to hit the backhand (and sometimes forehand) groundstroke. The reason for using two hands is obvious, they lack the strength to hit the ball with only one arm. By introducing the second arm the stroke becomes much easier! The help that children receive by using two hands is related to specific strength and applies to anyone who plays tennis. If you do not have specific strength to execute the stroke, technique will be impeded and the chances of hitting a clean shot or even making contact greatly diminishes. Typically, tennis players try to correct their technique problems through lessons by seeking out the advice of a teaching pro. Unfortunately, most teaching pros do not have a keen understanding of specialized strength and its relationship to technique training. Consequently, stroke deficiencies that are related to the strength component are often ignored or corrected in reverse order (technique before strength). As a result, corrections are made through repetitive practice in the hope that strength will improve together with technique (an often slow and inefficient process). In most cases incorporating one or two specific strength exercises would substantially help correct the problem allowing the player to develop a better stroke in a shorter period of time. The application of the theories and practices presented in this book produce positive results and their impact can be enormous. Once you read this book you will learn that by incorporating specialized exercises to address problem areas your game will improve significantly. When coupled with guidance from a good teaching professional you will develop your true tennis ability to an even higher level.
