I know most tough guys are not going to get past the front cover. There is no picture of Verdasco on the cover, and the author is not Arnold Bonecrusher. There is not even one chapter on "How to squat your pickup truck".
Get it anyway.
Playing tennis all too commonly results in overuse injuries. Instead of feeling better from playing, many are injured and sore.
And getting you in better shape for tennis is only the beginning. It will get you in great shape to really enjoy life - no more sore back, aching shoulders and lack of energy.
So this book could be the salvation for many a weekend warrior or league layer not yet in shape.
More, it has the information to contribute to all those who think they are already reasonably fit, but are looking for a book for more great tips and how to put it all together.
It is incredibly well organized to check on sensible advice on how to treat sore knees, elbows, shoulders, etc., clear direct instructions and pics on how and why to do add specific exercises/stretches into your routine, and great advice on such diverse topics as nutrition and hydration to even a great dynamic warm-up drill before play.
What a great read.
So sensible. So refreshingly uncomplicated.
It reads like People magazine but with the huge difference that here wisdom oozes throughout.
Just the right pic to illustrate the point.
This is THE primer for tennis players looking to start getting really fit.
The author is a champion body builder who could crush most of us, but doesn't include weight work in the book. For that you you'll have to turn to Mark Rippetoe's Starting Stength.
And there aren't High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)and Agility drills - but these are easily obtainable elsewhere.
But guys, until she comes out with that Arnold Bonecrusher edition, get this book now as it is and profit from it.
