Stretches for Tennis

50 min - Class


Anthony Lett is back with a Stretch class designed for Tennis players. He uses the contract and release practice to get the most out of your stretch. By using the Refomer, Mat, and a Pilates Pole, Anthony shows inventive ways to open up your upper body.

You don't need to be a Tennis player to try this class. All of these stretches are useful for anyone. Anthony also teaches a Stretches for Golf class which adds more stretches you can add to your repertoire.
What You'll Need: Mat, Reformer, Pilates Pole

Thank you, Anthony, this was great. Can you do the second to last upper back stretch (the one on the box next to the reformer) on a spine corrector?

Lori, Im sorry Im away teaching for this week. When Im back I will have a look and answer your question. Glad you enjoyed it Denise :)
Using this for my squash player client! Thank you for sharing. Awesome.
delighted to hear it!
Thanks Anthony! My 13 yr. old son is rapidly on his way to becoming an elite pitcher. I worry about over-use and resulting asymmetry causing injury and long-lasting problems. I already work with him on the reformer and stretches at home. You've given me some great ideas and little tweeks I can use to improve the quality of our sessions. Looking forward to watching the next video for lower body that will address trunk rotation and flexibility in hips which will allow him more power in batting as well. Yeah!
Fantastic Kim,. Your son is very lucky that are are aware of the possibility of long terms damage. 30 years of tennis have taken their toll on my joints, so keep it up :)
