Strength and Conditioning training methods involve enhancing athletic abilities within the specific demands of a particular sport. Strength training seeks to improve a person’s ability to exert forces required for speed, agility and power. On the other hand, ‘conditioning’ aims to prepare individuals for the metabolic demands within a particular sport. Conditioning training also incorporates strategies which aim to minimize the risk of injury. While professional tennis players often incorporate Strength & Conditioning (S&C) into their training, it is greatly underestimated by amateur and recreational tennis players.
