On more than one occasion we have said that “padel is played with legs” because more than half of the shots that we fail are preceded by a bad placement of the legs, usually because we have not arrived in time to hit properly. Is for this reason that this time we are going to train track legs power.
Unfortunately, during a match of paddle can not choose that they shoot the ball to the place that interests us, is more, almost always our opponent will seek us weak points to attack us with repetition, we will move all the track and we have to be at all times with continuous accelerations, braking and small displacement. Is needed to support all those actions that are repeated during a match a specific training of leg power developed on the paddle tennis court.
The power of legs in the paddle
All those actions that we perform prior to beating tend to perform to maximum intensity and are carried out mainly by the legs. Is for this reason that we must pay importance to develop the power of legs and, thus, execute the actions in a manner coordinated and explosive hitting and comfortably reach all balls.
In previous articles we have developed the power of legs by different methods. We have made training outdoors, where we did a training of the power of legs with the method of trawling (speed sled). We have also carried out a training of leg power on slopes, where the explosive due to the slope of the terrain we worked.
Training the power of legs on the paddle tennis court
On this occasion, we are going to working specifically within the paddle tennis court, with displacement and own shares of our sport and with the resistance of an elastic belt that will force us to develop high power levels.
This material allows us to work the explosive force of the undercarriage. We engaged a fixed point the other end through a belt, is already fastened by a companion or anchor it to any support within the track, such as the side gate. Elastic gives us strength to be greater as we separate ourselves from the fixed point.
We can start our training with a exercises to work all braking and torn that occur during a match a party. For example, for lateral displacement can place a series of cones with a ball over each one of them having to catch the first ball, return to the starting point then pick up the second ball, and so with successively with the rest of the balls. Whenever we go for the ball elastic offers resistance hindering us having to duck to catch the ball.
In that case we would be working only braking and accelerations in lateral movements. If I want to perform different displacement simply place the cones in several directions, having to pick up the ball again, but this time with accelerations and braking forward, diagonally, backwards or lateral. If you look at a game of paddle tennis we see that these actions are repeated continuously.
We can follow our specific training with elastic belt working the coordination of legs with a staircase of coordination. Here we can train as many variants as happen to us. The goal, as always, try to work at maximum speed and intensity trying to overcome the resistance that offers us the elastic. We can start with a simple coordination forward and gradually increase the complexity.
Can also work very specific aspects such as the prior to the beating of approximation or lateral adjustment steps. The ladder of coordination is therefore an ideal material to make it since it marks us directly each of the supports.
Taking advantage of that we are training on the track can make the beatings that occur directly in the paddle and requiring a good leg power to run correctly. With this type of training can make special emphasis to that power of leg work but doing it integrated with the coup itself.
Starting from a point, with a companion located behind holding the other end of the elastic, we need to hit volleys We pull in the network. To do this, we have to make an explosive acceleration of legs, fighting against the resistance of the elastic, and just at the time of the beating endure traction that makes us the belt to hit with the best possible technology. It’s very important collapse all the stabilizing muscles of the trunk.
As we carry out volleys can also train the trays. In this case, the companion has to place attached to the network since the displacement is back. The dynamic is the same, released us the ball, we move explosively and we carry out the tray, always fighting against the resistance offered us elastic.
