Hello Alois and Jeff, just from yesterday I have started to study your tutorials. Plenty of good information and exercise. Thank you.

If I am not wrong I haven't found anything related to Preparatory gymnastics/Warm up exercise/streching. I mean all that sort of exercises that are made before playing and and that are used especially to avoid tendinitis, cramps, muscle pains, knee problems...

I ask this because I am getting old (56) and would like to have still fun without hurting myself! Especially this year after one hour of playing in my club I start to have wrist and knee pain. Other fellows of my age have the same problems.

It could be very useful to have a video or a pdf chart where you teach all these specific stuff.

Eventually a specific link where to find this answer.

Thank you for helping me.

Hi Alois, thank you for your answer. Of course I have studied the lesson you pointed out: "Physical warm up", and yes it is quite good, but it does not include the proper exercise with the gym tools.

I mean, often my I feel pains in my arm and in my wrist. Probably some exercise with handgrips, weights, elastics could be very useful to improve resistance and strength.

There are many other tools such as: ab wheel, bands, dumbbells, grip plate, multigym machine. How to use all this stuff in the right way, good progression?

It could be very useful for many of your customers to give examples (how, how often), in a specific video and/or in a pdf sheet in the: "Training Secrets" session.

Hi Riccardo,

I don't feel qualified enough to comment on physical programs for people.  I think the best thing is to go to a gym and get something tailored for a player. Does anyone else have any thoughts on this.

I think a weights program 3 times a week for example is something that can help.  Also an endurance program during certain parts of the season will be useful.
