Do the thrower's ten to help prevent overuse injuries to your shoulder, elbow an wrist from all your serve practice:

You can use a theraband flexbar at your desk: Thera-Band FlexBar Video Demonstration

The serve is powered by the whole body in a kinetic chain fashion, with the power rippling up from your leg push off, through a dynamic uncoiling/reversal of the bow shape of your core, and finally up into the arm.

Like any chain, it is only as strong as it's weakest link.
