So what did you decide to do? Seems you could have a HUGE breakthrough if you have been achieving a great time so far without interval training. Good luck.

comment Sport Specific Lifts - Tennis
With any sport, core strength is going to be key. Even with weight exercises be sure to focus on core. I like a Full 360 Degree Plank Routine for all athletes done every other day. Good luck.

Can you tell us more about your training? Besides distance of each workout, are you doing intervals? What effort are your training runs?

ha ha! No worries on my end either. That makes a lot of sense as accepting does sometime stunt the conversation.

comment Bench Pressing vs. Push-ups
Both can be used aerobically or anaerobically depending on variables such as load, sets and rest intervals. One nice thing is that you can do push ups anywhere!
