Stretch


Triceps Stretch:

Attach Racquet Weight© to your racquet. With your left arm at your side, hold your tennis racquet in the right hand, and raise it over your head, dropping your wrist behind your head so the racquet head points toward the floor (as pictured). Feel the stretch in the triceps muscle, and hold for 20 seconds. Switch hands, and repeat two times for a total of three sets per side.

Triceps Stretch Enhanced:

Hold racquet in the right hand - behind the back - as in the first stretch, but bring left hand up and grab on to the racquet head (as pictured). Gently pull down to enhance the stretch in the triceps, holding for 20 seconds. Switch sides and repeat two times for a total of three sets per side.

Shoulder Stretch:

Hold racquet in the right hand, bringing it behind the back with the racquet head pointing upward. Grab onto the racquet head (as pictured) with the left hand, and gently pull up to stretch the shoulder muscle. Hold for 20 seconds and switch sides. Repeat two more times for a total of three sets per side.

Two-Sided Twist:

Put racquet behind neck (with Racquet Weight© as a cushion and racquet head parallel to the ground), and hold with both hands – the left on the end of the racquet head and the right holding the handle (as pictured). Slowly twist to one side, hold for five seconds, and twist to the other side, holding for five seconds. Do this eight times - then switch hands to reverse the direction of the racquet for eight more two-sided twists.
