stupid draw. so any advice on what to do for the shoulder? this is the first time sometime like this has happened to me so i'm kind of clueless.
2) first time i met tfm, we hit for an hour indoors to get ready for the santa bowl. later that day, i hit for 2 hours with my doubles partner. i cramped up at the end of the second set. last week, i played 4 sets of doubles with the jjjoshes and started cramping up really bad at the end of the 4th set. i'm worried about cramping tomorrow cause i'll be playing against a 4.0 in my 8pm match. i remember jrs telling me to drink lots of gatorade and eat some bananas. any other suggestions on what i should do?
any help would be appreciated. i really really hope i don't get destroyed in both my matches tomorrow...
Sorry to hear that! If it makes you feel any better, your serves looked good in the video. Great knee bend!
Like everyone else has said... I would go with ice and anti-inflammatory meds for #1. Aleve is good.
