Tennis is sport that requires a player to have a unique mix of speed, power, accuracy and control. The faster player doesn't win every game. The hardest hitter doesn't win every set. The player with the most accurate serve doesn't win every match.

It's the player with the best all-around game and the ability to control where to place the ball that usually comes out on top.

And most of the time you're swinging with one arm - not two as in golf, or baseball, or hockey – so the ability to control the racquet head becomes a top priority. A tremendous amount of stress is put on the arm with every serve and every groundstroke. And when you're playing a tie-breaker late in the 5th set, that control is everything. Any loss of connection with your racquet, and you're at an immediate disadvantage and potentially run the risk of injury.

In fact, tennis puts so much strain on the arm that it holds the rare distinction of having its own injury – tennis elbow. Sports medicine researchers believe this results from “repetitive impacts between the ball and racket coupled with poor wrist stability, especially during the backhand swing. The backhand stroke seems to be the culprit because it results in overexertion and micro-tearing within two primary muscles inside the forearm.” 1

Wrist instability and muscle tearing in the forearm due to over exertion is painful and debilitating, and can hinder not only your game but also many of your everyday activities.

Developing the muscles that support the wrist and elbow are a key factor in reducing the risk of tennis elbow, and provide the necessary strength to control the racquet. But there is already so much strain on these joints when playing, that adding weight to your arm or racquet can cause greater injury. And just working out in the gym doesn't target all of the necessary muscle groups that are engaged in tennis. So how do you effectively target the right muscles in your forearm?

The FP360 easily attaches to the grip of your racquet and provides a simple “resistance” workout for your forearm muscles while you practice and play. It is designed specifically for use while you're on the court, to develop the exact forearm muscles needed to support the racquet and reduce the risk of injury.

Will it improve your game? Absolutely.

Power in your serve and groundstrokes is based on how fast you swing the racket. Control and accuracy are directly related to the muscles that grip, flex, extend and rotate your hand and wrist. By strengthening your forearm muscles, both of these areas are addressed. By using the MaxXcel FP360, you can do all of that without ever leaving the court.

And that increased forearm strength will translate into more speed on your serve, more accuracy on your ground-strokes, better control of your volleys, and better service returns, forehand, backhand or cross-court, for professionals, juniors, and recreational players alike.

Game, Set, Match.
