Welcome to the second season of The byrizz Rehab & Performance podcast. In the first episode of 2022, I'm speaking to Ali Glehem and Martin Stern Taipale, tennis performance coaches at AIM-X Performance Sports Club. This episode will touch on how both coaches test, train, and develop Tennis players at different ages and levels.
Let's find out more about the man behind this episode;
Ali has over 20 years of experience in elite training and has worked with some of Sweden's biggest names - such as Robin Söderling, Robert Lindstedt, and Rebecca Peterson. With solid knowledge and a great driving force, he works based on your conditions and goals for you to reach the next level.
Martin has both background as a tennis player and over 10 years of experience in training within ATP, WTA, and Junior Circuit. With extensive knowledge of exercise, anatomy, functionality, and diet, he sees the big picture and tailors programs for each person he works with.
This episode is the first one of the byrizz series of visual podcasts, meaning that we will be sharing more visual content aiming to educate our audience by presenting our podcast with video examples of exercises, tests, presentations, and other procedures to enhance the way of learning from our guests and episodes.
Here's the video that both Ali and Martin reviewed and commented on. Thanks to Erick Hong for participating in the video shoot. Even though it seems I won most points, Erick did beat me.
Video-study case: The AIM-X coaches have reviewed recreational tennis players and have with the video screening come up with findings that are shared below the video. The exercise that AIM-X provides as the ones that can be done for improving performance, in this case, Split-Stance are also shown under the Video analysis.
Primar findings of the analysis:
Although the player in question only plays once a week, the coaches said that he has the potential to develop his game by training on Split Stance (working with the feet) and not least playing more frequently.

Split stance exercise should be done both outside the Tennis court. If you struggle with the Split Stance as I do, the continuous and repetitive performance of the shown exercises is key.
