Anybody have experience here? Should I change my workouts? Are there things that have high priority that I should always do? Tennis-specific workouts are something that have always confused me, in that I don't know what to do.
Do both. Go a month with heavy low rep weights, then the next month high rep lighter weight.
You hit both quick and slow twitch muscles, don't see how that can hurt.
PS: Don't listen to those who say "Oh you'll get musclebound", that's nonsense. Do remember that bigger muscles equal more fatigue.
