Training - Prioritisation of Supplementary Training
 
Just wondering, how many players here supplement the amount of time they spend on court with tennis-specific training programmes at the gym?

And if you do, what is most effective?

I used to do lots of sprints and running in general, but it just never translated because I never ran that much in matches.
Core work with medicine balls and exercises that build arm strength seem most useful.

I do strength training mostly for injury prevention. Consist of various free weight exercises targeting my shoulders, forearms, biceps and triceps. I also do lunges and squats with weights to strengthen my quads/hamstrings (helps protect the knees).

I do a bit of medicine ball work for my core but not much. I alternate weight training and cardio which is basically treadmill for 30 mins, nothing major.

This might help. A bit of info overload sorry.
