With Wimbledon now in full ‘swing’, so far we’ve seen little rain and promising signs that this is shaping up to be an exciting tournament.
Fresh from his Grand Slam victory in the French open, tennis superstar and currently the world’s number two player, Rafael Nadal will want to continue his success by securing a third Wimbledon title. But with a demanding and intense, year-round tour schedule, elite athletes like Nadal need to ensure they maximise their training time to maintain peak physical fitness and performance. So it’s no surprise to learn that like many top athletes, Nadal turns to the Power Plate machine off court to give him that extra edge.
What are the benefits of Power Plate training for tennis athletes like Nadal? Research suggests it has the potential to accelerate his off court training by improving muscle strength and power as well as increasing endurance levels – which can help to optimise his performance on the court.
