Tennis Fitness: Increase Serve Speed with Medicine Ball Exercises

Want a more powerful serve? Learn from one of the best, Mardy Fish, and utilize the kinetic chain in order to add power to your serve. The kinetic chain is the concept of generating force from the ground up through your legs and trunk to your arm and racquet. Power and serve speed is lost if there is a missing link in this chain.

Here is a great exercise to help you develop the hip and trunk strength necessary to make the serve your next weapon on the tennis court.

Perform this exercise 2-3 times for 20-30 seconds at a time. Try this exercise after practice or during your off court tennis training session this week.
