Tennis Warm-Up and Cool-Down to Prevent Injury

Tennis Warm-Up and Cool-Down to Prevent Injury

These dynamic stretches take only 10 minutes to warm up and 9 to cool down - worth the time to prevent tennis injury! Watch and do the exercises, with Pete Egoscue guiding as you go. Pete says, "If you can conceive of an activity, your body is designed to be able to implement the game or the activity. The idea is that sport doesn't hurt you. It's the body that comes to the sport."

From the video notes:

With all the back and fourth motions that are required in the game of tennis, it's easy for our bodies to get off balanced and worn down. Pete Egoscue, an alignment expert and founder of the Egoscue Method, designed this dynamic stretching sequence to help reset and rejuvenate the body for proper functioning. These warm-up and cool-down stretches were created specifically for tennis players in order to stop injury or discomfort before it begins.
