5.0 out of 5 stars Every tennis player and trainer must read this book and watch the DVD, 30 Dec. 2007

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Complete Conditioning for Tennis (Book & DVD) (Complete Conditioning for Sports Series) (Paperback)
This book comes with a DVD. I have read the book and watched the DVD carefully several times and liked them very much. I have been playing tennis for many years somewhere between intermediate and advanced level. I thought I was doing everything necessary to keep in shape for tennis until I watched this DVD. Then I realized what I was lacking and doing wrong and revised my conditioning program accordingly. It immediately reflected favorably into my tennis performance.

The conditioning exercises are categorized in the DVD as static, dynamic, stretching, strength, endurance stamina etc. types. Exercises done without any instruments, others done with medicine balls, weights, tennis drills with tennis balls and racket etc. Of course they overlap. They are very clearly explained and demonstrated in a high quality picture and sound DVD.

I believe anybody who would perform these conditionings regularly 3 times a week in addition to playing tennis could become a top player. And top players of course regularly do them, otherwise they would not be top players.

So I highly recommend this book and its DVD to everybody interested in playing tennis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Safe & Scientific Conditioning, 10 May 1999
By A Customer
Most conditioning methods recommended by even some of the leading lights in tennis have been a regurgitation of methods which was non-progressive and relied heavily on `past, successful experiences'. Afterall, he won with those exercises and practices, so I don't see why .... This book stays closely to the latest research so that the exercises thus recommended are safe, time-saving, objective and practical - the last a criteria for adaptation into actual court strategy w/o too much of a hindrance. Language is simple. Coaches worth their salt should have a serious look at it before dismissing it as another scientific hoodwink by a bunch of scientists who'd never played the real game, except after work.

This review is from: Complete Conditioning for Tennis (Book & DVD) (Complete Conditioning for Sports Series) (Paperback)
All tennis books give the overall knowledge on how to play tennis but this concept gives the insight and power to make it at the appropriate level. Making this book more diverse with the easy usable DVD that can be left playing when people come around the club and see what possibilities tennis can have on them regardless of age.
