This week, a reader named Mike wants to reduce his risk of tennis elbow, writing:

Hi Anastasia,

What are some specific exercises that can reduce my tendency to get tennis elbow?

According to Anastasia & her fitness trainer Jason Stacy:

There are many factors that can contribute to tennis elbow. I'd be hesitant to give "medical" advise without knowing more info/history. I'd recommend seeing a Physio and if you don't get the results, see another for second opinion.

That being said, here are a few things to consider:

*Your techniques-get a qualified coach or Physio to observe how u hit

*Ensure your rotator cuff and scapula (shoulder blades) are strong&stable-M,T,Y,W's are a great exercise..they can be done with no equipment or with tubing, cables, or dumbbells.

*Grip strength-always very important

*Grip size-your grip could be too big or small

These are just a few things to consider. Hope it helps!!!!
