Lateral Quickness Drills

Posted in Z.S. Tennis, Z.S. Training with tags , , , , , , on August 18, 2011 by zenithstrength

Lateral quickness and the ability to change direction and cut is a necessary skill in order to perform at a high level on the playing field. Unfortunately many strength training programs don’t address lateral stability and strength.

Below is a list of a  few of the exercises we use at Zenith Strength to improve lateral movement and quickness

Band Resisted Turn and Go


Cut stop change of direction.


Cross over sprint with change of direction.

Give these a try and let me know if you notice improvement with lateral quickness and cutting.

I’ll post some videos of some of our favorite  strength exercises for lateral movement that we use to supplement our speed training next week.
