When doing tennis stabilization drills with a player as a coach, it’s important to start with a proper warm-up to prepare the body for the drills. As the coach, you should focus on proper form and technique to avoid injury and maximize the benefits of the exercise. Gradually progress the difficulty of the drills as the player becomes more proficient to continue challenging them and improve their stability and balance.
Since many tennis movements require a strong and stable core, it’s important to incorporate drills that target the core muscles. Additionally, stabilization drills should include movements that are specific to the demands of tennis, such as lateral and diagonal movements, quick changes of direction, and explosive starts and stops.
During the drills, it’s essential to monitor the player’s energy levels and modify the drills as needed to prevent exhaustion or injury. Finally, providing feedback on the player’s performance and offering guidance on how to improve their technique and form can help them get the most out of the stabilization drills and see improvements in their on-court performance.
