In this video you will learn a warm up to do before playing tennis.
Tennis is a strenuous, physically-demanding sport
Always warm up before playing to prepare your body for the effort
Start off by jogging twice around the court
Do a final lap at a quicker speed
Then do 20 jumping jacks - hopping your feet out as you clap your hands overhead
Next do a high knee run up to the net
Run tall and light, bouncing off the ground
Run back to the baseline with heel flicks
Run back and forth with taking short strides and and flicking your hip with your heels
Follow up with the carioca
Step over across in front with the right leg, step to the side, step across behind with the left leg and step to the side
Remember to rotate the trunk twist the arms as you step across
Next run three steps and rotate one leg outward and the same with the other leg three steps later
Once you reach the net, turn back and rotate the leg inward and repeat the same with the other leg till you get back to the starting position
Next run and lift one knee and swing the opposite arm up
Alternate the legs and arms and run back and forth
Run forward and swing your arms forward one by one
On the way back you could swing the arms backward
Do a few knee to chest tuck jumps
Follow up with a few lunges on each side
Next rotate your arms forward and backward
Do the same with your wrists, clockwise and anti-clockwise
Finish by rotating your ankles one by one
You are now ready to hit the court
Enjoy your game!
