Got It Covered

The interval training session focuses on exercises to enhance overhead play improving serves and smashes.

It begins with a pulse raising warm up followed by a shadowing section working up the gears. Moving on to warming up the serve then becoming explosive with tracking smashes and getting into the net to attack the volley.

Look out for the squat, press and bend combination!
