I'm finally getting back into shape. Does anyone have any plyometrics workouts, or a site that has them. Thanks in advance

Jumping rope is a good plyo exercise. Check the Sticky thread (Great fitness sites) at the top of this forum. There are probably a dozen of more plyo/power sites.

I think plyometrics are OK for simply building more strength and explosiveness , but I would spend time on the more demanding tennis specific drills that include hitting the ball, "like windshield wipers". Between play and training, there is only so much time in the week and IMO combining more than one element is more efficient.
