We've got a little bit of a challenge for you.
Well, maybe not like a challenge, but more of an opportunity.
That's right folks — we want you to train like Andy Murray. Trust us, you'll be saying you never knew this much work went into tennis!
Here's what you do:
Run a mile at an easy pace, then perform a mixture of straight-line lunges, side-lunges, and reverse lunges. (10 on each leg).
Follow with 4×400m easy-paced runs.
Mark out 400m, and set a stopwatch with an alarm to repeat intervals of 85 seconds. Aim to run 400m before the bleep.
Rest for 85 seconds. Repeat 10 times.
Run another slow mile around the grass by the track and then do some light static stretching.
Stretch again, more rigorously, two hours later when your muscles are relaxed.
Aim for 200g of carbs and 50g of protein (2 baked potatoes and a tin of tuna) for optimum recovery.
Give it a shot and then report back to us!
Now you'll know what it's like to train like a champion tennis player (and a handsome one)! Good luck!!
