    Most tennis players tend to develop a shift toward their dominant side. I serve left handed and am starting to notice that I have more tension on my back on that side. While I am no Quasimodo, I can feel a difference in the thickness of the muscle.

    I am not weight training right now and am satisfied w/ overall strength. Reality is that tennis and aerobics are more important. However, I would like to excercise to maintain body balance. I want to play tennis many years; so I must invest some care here before it leads to overstrain. Does anyone have any experience w/ this?

    Good ol' tennis arm. I'm sure people have seen Federer/Roddick's right forearms compared to their left ones... yeek, they are like a baseball bat and tire iron!
