Efficient Workouts!

The Daily Minimum!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Students,

As I have told you many times, this is your daily minimum.
3 minute dynamic warmup routine prior to practice and a 10 minute fitness routine after practice. If you get these done, you can feel free to workout more. Each day, you can choose to do the core workout or the leg workout.
I would encourage you to pull out your phone or turn on your tablet and follow along to make sure that your workout stays timed and structured.

Thanks!
Coach Samson Dubina

The Details

Comparing Drills to Matches

One of the most frequently asked questions is..
“Samson, why do you do drills? Wouldn’t it be better to exclusively play matches each day?

Good Question. In preparing for the Olympic trials, there are many aspects of my game that I need to continually sharpen – strokes, footwork, serve, serve return, short game, offense, defense, etc… For isolating one or two aspects of the game, I can select unique drills to work that aspect over and over again during a 10 minute drill. So for performing drills, you can work on the specifics.

The Newgy Ohio Open concluded with California's Dan Liu taking top honors and $1400 by winning both the u2600 and Open events with 20 consecutive wins! With groups of 8 players in every event and 4 advancing from each group, most players were able to play 15-25 matches over the course of the weekend. I would like to personally congratulate all the winners.

Mastering the Professional Serve

Watch These Video Clips!

Most players want to improve their serves, but many of them don’t know where to start.  Here is what I would recommend…
 
#1 Decide what serves best match your game
 
#2 Find a top player who serves those exact serves
Here are some sample videos…
