But that's the thing... I'm not saying she should start by lifting 70 lbs, I'm saying now should not be a start. If it's starting now it means she hasn't been doing it. The injuries she has been having are a direct result of being weak.. and she is weak due to not doing the strength training before.
I think you are missing the point of my post completely. Of course if she is starting now she needs to start slow. She will have to do the weight training and build muscle if she is to ever recover power in her shots though. And the power in her shots are necessary for a real success of her game, to be able to beat more than scrubs. I'm not sure she will do it though... she hasn't been doing it for how long? If she was working her strength, it wasn't in an effective way, as she can't last in long matches, her shots are weak and lacking power and she has complained of lack of energy time and again.
And I'm sorry you don't like my posts.. can't do much about that.
Maybe I am hard on Ana, but the decisions she has been making have been SO obviously dumb, it's no wonder it's going from failure to more failure. That was actually the only posible result from it. Hard to believe they actually took those decisions. I mostly write in total disbelief of what I see it's happening, of the choices being made, of the thought process being shown. And it's not all that much what she says, though it does represent much of what she does, and that is the point.
I know you're not saying that. I was just using an example
And the point I was trying to make that you missed was, if she's not doing it, then it's for a reason. Muscle isnt the only thing that gives you power
Rafa has WAY more than Roger, but Roger consistanly produces more power than Rafa. It also has to do with technique and other variables. You can't just assume it was a terrible decision because we don't know what the factors behind it were. We sit behind our computers and judge. She's the one who has to put in the work and whos carreer is affected.
We are not tennis coaches, we are not physios, and we don't deal with Ana on a day to day basis. Therefore, we cannot judge what she does or doesn't need.
It's not just muscles and lifting weights
Of course there's nothing you can do about it. I'm just saying it would be a nicer place to post if you didn't come off so confrontational and stand off-ish
You guys are more than welcome to move the discussion. I, however, am done. Good night
