    Isner match

    throwing a pitch is a lot more damaging to your arm. its easier to throw out your arm with a small, relatively light ball than using a heavier racquet to hit it. If youve ever thrown a tennis ball hard you can tell its rougher on the shoulder.

    Muscles Needed for Rackethead Speed?

    id say core for every thing, and anything that helps you "snap" your forearm/wrist/hand through contact. Also do over head throws with a medicine ball (like a soccer throw-in) or swing a really big hammer for serves. Someone told me they know a javelin thrower who has a great serve so just...

    Need a good workout plan.

    unless you have a high blood pressure or something, the safest way and best way to lift the most weight is to take a breath before you begin the eccentric portion and HOLD the breath until you pass the "sticking" point of the concentric portion. not only will this let you produce more force...

    not really not that necessary and 3 is fine for any time.

    My pre season routine : /

    so.... how will high rep lifting train fast twitch mucles? how will this "pat down" big muscles? all "pat down" could be is either lose fat or lose muscle.

    What are some explosive exersises?

    even most people who think they know what they are doing are wrong, I would do something less technical. I would go with high pulls (clean minus the catch) or medicine ball throws (ball on the ground in front of you, heav it over your head and as far or high behind you as you can). I wouldnt...

    body fat problem

    just because it takes longer doesnt mean it is worse... low-intensity, steady-state cardio burns a higher percentage of fat per calorie burned (correct me if i am wrong) and not everyone wants to push him or herself as hard as is necessary for HIIT.

    Losing Weight, but not much body fat?

    War against those love handles

    you are pretty skinny as it is in my opinion. Im 6 foot and if i get down to 175 i look too skinny and whatnot. I wouldnt try to loose fat, id try to get some muscle first, then drop some fat. you are not 5.9% bodyfat, what ever test you took was wrong most likely

    Need Help Creating a 2 Day, Low Volume Weight Training Routine

    since its just 2 days id probably go full body for both. Also, to maintain strength, lower-ish reps is usually best i think, which you already want to do. maybe something like - a type of squat - a type of upper body push - a type of upper body pull - a type of lower body pull (for lower...
