Tennis and stretching help?
Yeah so If you’re here to offer me some help on stretching here’s my problem. The problem is, every practice we jog a good ways, which is fine, then we run stairs, which starts to hurt, then we play a game or two. This is all fine, doesn’t leave me tooo sore but recently our coach has set us doing “duck walks” which I had never done and looked pretty simple.. In short, these “duck walks” are when you crouch down to the ground as if trying to take a poop, then you take extremely wide steps without touching the ground with your hands or anything. This… started hurting.. bad. Day 1 hurt, day 2 hurt a lot worse, and day 3 (today) we didn’t have practice and my thighs hurt like hell. I’ve heard people say to stretch to get the pain to go away.. But what kind of stretches should I be doing? I’ve never done many stretches..
What kind of stretches should I do for thighs?
About the tennis.. I need some tips of serving and backhands!
My serves are pitiful, when I tried out for the team 2 months ago I could serve some serious power shots that nobody could return, but I haven’t practiced since our tryouts and I’ve completely lost it, now all my serves are pus serves that barely make it over.
My backhands are getting better, they never were good, I would usually only slice, or lob, for my backhand because I never learned any other way and this was easy, but since my coach wants me playing doubles, that’s not gonna work with a man on the net..
Need tips of serve and backhand.
I’m about 190 lbs and about 5′11, I’m the biggest guy on our tennis team but I’m the best player on the (pretty pitiful) team. I can run further and longer than anyone on the tennis team EXCEPT our cross country guys.. (Their crazy good) I’m fat but pretty athletic if I do say so myself ;).
