Take a look at these incredible health benefits of this fast-paced game.
1) It’s good for your heart
Tennis demands a series of quick sprints and movement over a small period of time. This in return increases your heart rate, pumping oxygen and nutrients to your muscles more efficiently. Over time, playing tennis lowers your resting heart rate and blood pressure.
2) Improve your balance and flexibility
Tennis engages your legs, arms, hands, and torso. This coordination of the full body requires flexibility and balance. Over time flexibility and balance will improve and help lower your risk of injury and stretching your range of motion outside of playing tennis.
3) Tone your muscles
Tennis is a workout for your entire body as you run, swing, pivot, and stretch. A lot of people find they can burn more calories when they play tennis than with many other physical activities. Engaging different movements at various speeds helps tone multiple muscle groups allows for an entire body workout during play. Playing tennis regularly is an optimal rigorous strength training routine for your whole body.
