The main purpose of learning is to be able to predict what is coming. Eventually through learning, we become experts through changes in our brain to perform so well but also to predict what would be an outcome of the particular movement
Imbalance in the training to recovery ratio (high training and competitions loads and not enough recovery) is the most decisive factor of developing the overtraining state of the athlete. Recovery strategy, as the opposition to the high performance training load strategy should be equally understood and applied as the part of the training process, rather then considered just as a day off the practice
Unit turn, loading, unloading, stretch shortening momentum and finishing of the stroke
It’s amazing that we can have the real time feedback about the ratio of the proper to unproper muscles used during the stroke execution using Athos equipment.
Body segments must be coordinated and synchronized in such a way that a highest racquet speed is generated at the impact point.
As spin is more and more introduced into the game of tennis, there was a lot of confusion how to … More
Two crucial elements are analyzed in this blog:
1. Positioning to the ball (How to successfully position the body stepping away from the ball)
2. Efficient stroke and recovery (How to successfully create enough power so the trajectory of the ball is deep and controlling while keeping the balance and recovery potential)
There are many directions in which the player moves during his performance. By all tennis game analysis, lateral movement (side to side) is around 70% of the whole court coverage, therefore it’s a crucial for the optimal result to control the body (keep the dynamic balance) while moving laterally.
Loading consists of the engagement of the major muscle groups to create the most efficient kinetic chain movement while keeping the dynamic balance. What does this mean?
