Rafael Nadal Training Exercises [Video]
by Tom Gainey | December 16th, 2010, 3:15 pm

If you want to sculpt your body to look like Rafael Nadal’s, you’ll want to watch these videos and take plenty of notes.

You’ll see Nadal going through a workout regime which includes stretching, yoga, jump rope, resistance bands, balance ball, core training and much more.

I’ve done a couple of Nadal’s training exercises he does in the video, but a few I’ll have a try. Although I don’t think that will be the difference in me becoming a tennis star a year from now!

I don’t know how old these videos are or when they were first released but they do show what kind of work Nadal must put in to keep his level.

These videos are part of an 8 DVD set “Learn to Play Tennis With Toni & Rafa Nadal” (Forehand, Backhand, Serve, Volley, Special Shots, Tactics, Training, Match Analysis), filmed in 2009 and released in Spain only in February 2010.

These 2 clips here are filmed on the terrace and in the small gym atop the Nadals’ apartment building in Manacor.

The guy in red polo is Rafa’s fitness coach Joan Forcades.

The second clip shows some Power-Plate drills, all the rage in top gyms recently.

i acquired a vibration tech machine about a year ago. i am glad, but not surprised, to see Rafa using this vibration technology, invented originally for astronauts to maintain fitness during space travel. i had chronic hip pain due to car accidents for over 15 years. now i am able to work out again & have lost 16 pounds & increased my muscle mass. this unit looks Italian, which is well built & more pricey. but even the low end units are incredibly effective. this piece of equipment is the best investment i have ever made in the pursuit of fitness, besides my tred mill. as Rafa’s work out & therapy shows, it takes many aspects, from massage to cross training, as well as positive attitude, to keep a fitness level. Rafa inspires me to go on, as he has healed & progressed to new levels. it is possible to get better & stronger! thx!
