Recent Study Shows Short-Term Conditioning Program Improves Tennis Players’ Serve Velocity by Nearly 5 MPH, Announces Performance Health
Date:10/21/2013

Akron, OH (PRWEB) October 21, 2013

A research study published in the Journal of Sports Science and Medicine showed that a short-term tennis conditioning program is effective in enhancing serve velocity in junior developmental tennis players. In just six weeks of strength training, study participants significantly increased their serve velocities by nearly 5 mph.

“To the best of our knowledge this is the first study that has examined the effects of a strength-training program on serve velocity in youth tennis players. The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness of a six-week conditioning program comprising TheraBand™ elastic resistance exercises,” stated the authors, led by Jaime Fernandez-Fernandez, Researcher, Department of Training and Exercise Science, University Ruhr-Bochum, Germany. “One of the primary advantages of this training program is that only inexpensive resistance devices are needed so it can easily be implemented during the daily training routine.” According to another study (Reid & Scheiker, 2008), the use of elastic tubing is the most common strength training tool used by professional players. The authors supported the use of TheraBand elastic tubing “because of its portability and flexibility in allowing athletes to explore variable ranges of motion, resistances and limb positions.”

Thirty competitive, healthy and nationally ranked male junior tennis players (average age of 13 years) participated in the study. Because young athletes increase muscle strength through maturation, which can affect serve velocity, a control group was used. Participants were randomly and equally divided into control and training groups. All the athletes had a minimum of three years of prior tennis specific training and all were tested before and after the six-week program for shoulder range of motion (ROM), serve velocity and serve accuracy.

The strength-training program was approximately 60
