Bodyweight workouts are the perfect way to keep in shape – in tennis shape! – when you don't have access to a gym or to any kind of exercise gear or equipment. I've put together a super quick workout that will take you less than seven minutes to complete and consists of very simple bodyweight exercises. These will keep you in excellent shape and help you play even better tennis when you're able to hit the courts again.
This workout uses an interval timer to keep you on track and moving. If you don't already own an interval timer, you should be able to find one for free in your app store to download to your smart phone. This workout has 10 exercises done on a 40 second interval – 30 seconds of exercises followed by a 10 second rest period. The whole thing takes 400 seconds to do – that's 6.66 minutes!
The exercises you will do are very simple and, if you aren't sure how to do them, you can find plenty of videos on YouTube that will show you how by doing a quick search. Your ten exercises are:
- Jumping Jacks
- Lunges (alternate legs)
- Push-Ups (modified to your ability)
- Donkey Kicks
- Wall Sit
- Running in Place with High Knees
- Jumping Jacks
That's it! You can get a free download of this workout, with the interval timer instructions, by clicking on the big blue button below. That will also add you to my Tennis Fixation weekly update list so you'll get free tennis tips too! If you're already on the list, don't worry. You'll get the download but you won't get two emails each week.
