Pilates is a perfect exercise for sports conditioning, particularly racket sports like tennis. Not only can it enhance performance on the court but it can also keep the body injury-free while playing.
Pilates for tennis can augment strength and stability. At the same time, it can develop agility, ground stroke, and speed. Since tennis is a sport that can cause disparity of strength and flexibility between the sides of the body, off court training like Pilates helps reestablish balance for better symmetry.
Additionally, Pilates can train the leg muscles to better stabilize the joints. In tennis it is important to achieve the right stance and foundation in order to more effectively swing the racket. Upper body and shoulder stability is important as well to produce the power as you hit the ball without spraining the muscles on contact. Consistent Pilates exercise can also improve footwork which is essential to the game.
