Reverse Wood Chop for tennis. what do u think?
 
As the exercise as almost the same with groundstrokes motion and involve core, legs and shoulder, do u think it is a good exercise for tennis? I rarely see any advice to include this ecercise in our routine. does it means that wood chop does not really help your tennis?

Thanks

The woodchop is definitely a part of my core workout regime. Anything that strengthens the external obliques is great. Begin standing then as you progress move to your knee(s).

i call that one "starting the lawn mower". i use it with the woodchopper all the time. i think they are great core exercises.

It's so good that three variants of the one handed variety are included in the thrower's ten: www.asmi.org/SportsMed/media/thrower10.swf
