    I know a little bit about weight training but wouldn't be able to design an effective program specifically for tennis where by I can only use free weights once a week (this is all time allows). I was hoping that someone would have one that has been proven and could share it?

    Thank you!:)

    my only suggestion is to do bench presses on a stability ball. Make sure you keep your hips up as well. This creates a situation where the rotator cuff is helping stabilizes, and we all know you need to work on the rotator cuff to prevent injury.

    this is no good, it requires a workout pass. you have to pay for it.

    Is there anything you can do with maybe a free weight dumb bell that is 5 lbs while sitting on your couch watching TV ?

    look up a shoulder health workout. You can use the dumbbell to strengthen your rotator cuff and other shoulder stabilizers with a few exercises. just don't go play tennis right after finishing the workout.
