With all the back and fourth motions that are required in the game of tennis, it’s easy for our bodies to get off balanced and worn down. Pete Egoscue, an alignment expert and founder of the Egoscue Method, designed this stretching sequence to help reset and rejuvinate the body for proper functioning. These warm-up and cool-down stretches were created specifically for tennis players in order to stop injury or discomfort before it begins. Further, these moves will help you feel more agile, relieve any joint or muscle tightness, and ensure that you are ready for any shot that comes your way.
