    I'm a 16 year old junior. 157 lbs 6'1'' 10-11% body fat.
    Problem is, my cardio is pretty weak (tennis cardio. I can run for a long period(Think 9.4-10.1 beep test) but tennis tires me out quickly in the high intensity drills.

    I'm thinking my legs need to have better explosiveness/endurance. What does talk tennis suggest.

    I squat 185lbs at 12 reps 3 sets(45 second break between sets). Havent tried for a max because I do it on my own. However that completely drains me for a few minutes.

    personally i would say squat heavier and for lower reps

    think 3-5

    alternatively if you really want to focus on "tennis cardio" then you could always try HIIT with sprints

    Plyometric drills will really help you

    Leg curls, reverse leg curls and lungs

    Forty yard walking lunges at 90% followed by a 40 yd jog back to the starting point. Forty yard jump squats at 90% followed by 40 yd jog back to start. 4-5 set of 5 each. 90% based on 90% of maximum heart rate. Use a stop watch and a pulse rate monitor.
