    • Description:

      -Complete a thorough warm-up/mobilisation routine before you begin
      -Alternate which leg you lunge in on for each set, to help balance out your strength

    • Minutes on exercise:2:00

    • Description:

      Focus on getting good height/distance with the jumps, but make it a 'bouncing' action so that you're minimising contact time with the floor. 

    • Exercise Notes:Complete 5 rep of corner to corner bounces, taking a slow jog back to the start in between each one. After you've complete all 5 reps of corner to corner, rest for 1min and then move onto the next exercise.

    • Minutes on exercise:2:00

    • Description:

      Work as fast as you can on the shuttles, reaching in to touch the floor with your racket hand on each rep, and alternating each set which leg you're leading with.

    • Exercise Notes:Work 3 times through the 3 point shuttle sequence (back of the service box > short line > front wall repeated x3). Upon completion rest for 1min, then repeat the circuit through for 4, 6, or 8 sets in total.
