The Tennis Functional Training Program by world renowned performance manager, Mackie Shilstone, is a four-part training protocol.
The protocols include Shilstone’s serve accelerator, a program he built while working with world-class champion Serena Williams for 13 years to help increase the speed of her serve.
Also included is the 4-way lunge protocol, which is a resistant/assistant program built around increasing the muscular endurance of the lower body.
Followed by trunk rotation, a program built to increase the body’s core stability and speed of rotation. And finally, we have scapular stabilization, which is the protocol to bullet proof the back and shoulders of the body.
These protocols are used for skill enhancement as well as increasing muscular endurance.
