Best Exercise To Improve Your Tennis Backhand


Blasting a backhand like Djokovic isn’t about arm power—it’s about core strength and good posture, says Brad Minns, a certified tennis coach based in Orlando. “You must twist your body so your nondominant hand can lead when you strike the ball,” he says. That means your hips, shoulders, arms, and core muscles should all work together. So build balanced strength with perpendicular medicine ball throws, which mimic the shot, says Minns. Practising with a partner is also a good way to simulate the complexity of a real game.
