    Firstly, get yourself a yoga mat and start off doing 20 reps of sit-ups and push-ups. Secondly, got a dumbbell or a barbell? Use those and do 10-15 reps of bicep curls. This will gain muscle and will improve your strength. It will also help you exert a great amount of power. Lastly, run around the block or on a nearby football field at least twice a day. When you run around the block, you should run for at least 30 minutes. When your on a football field, run 2-3 laps non-stop. Running is such an important exercise as it helps improve your footwork and keeps your body fit.

    To get a race horse ready, you slowly play with it’s tool. It excites the horse.

    if you have the wii play wii tennis, it really helps. Dont just stand there and flick the remote, really get into the game. It also helps to play best out of three with somone else so it gives you some motivation. Also you can try yoga. Just look up easy yoga on http://www.youtube.com and watch some instructional videos.

    Hope it helped and good luck on your tennis season.
    🙂

    run run run run and run

    matches are a couple hours, so even if the other person is better, it doesn’t make a difference if they can’t last cause they are too tired

    jump rope is also good alternative to running

    also try getting one of these : http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3066253

    use it while watching tv, or something. helps with forearm strength (which tennis players need) and does actually help

    endurance training is always great to do. such as running on the treadmill or swimming laps
    strengthen your arms by doing pushups
    agility training by running backwards, crossovers, cones, etc.
    flexibility training by doing lunges and stretching
    leg strength by doing squats

    actual practicing tennis skills, i’d go to a park where they have a wall you can hit balls off of, or go to an empty court and practice serving or dropping the ball and hitting it. better yet, a ball machine! xD
    or get a friend to go with you and play games :]

    good luck!!!

    a few things u can do… firstly

    sprinting is so important for tennis.. so practise running up and down the street
    endurance work on that.. go for some long distance jogs

    streching work on flexblity training

    your core strength… do plenty of situps and pushups.. especially situps.. the core is so important

    Leg strength.. u get all your power from the legs.. do squats and lunges…. as this determines how well u hit.. your legs..
