Weekly training intensity - what should players look for...?

Take home message: each week consists of 2 hard, 2 medium, 2 light and one day off training!

Now, this is drastically simplistic, but there's a grain of truth in it and, if I may say so myself... a rather useful notion. One of the great pitfalls players fall into is the notion of training hard, hard, hard, hard, exhausted. Not the best way forward by any means as it reduces quality, opens us up to all sorts of overuse injuries and generally "ain't that much fun".

The challenge each week is to plan... to make sure that we lighten a load so that our bodies can adapt. Also we need to embrace the idea that a quality session doesn't need to be gut wrenching. A skill session, a stretching session, even a core session can contribute to our long term success. We don't need to flog ourselves every day to be winners... trust me.

See you on court.
