10 Fitness Tips From Laura Robson
Laura Robson

Laura Robson may be off the court with an injury, but she is hard at work in the gym rehabbing.

See Robson's 10 fitness tips below:

1. MIX IT UP
"My workout changes every day. Every second day is weights and the rest is on the track or recovery."

2. BUILDING FAST-TWITCH MUSCLE DOESN'T JUST MEAN SPRINTS
"In the gym I'm working on fast twitch fibres so a lot of deadlifts, non weight-bearing lunges and pull-ups"

3. HAVE A KILLER EXERCISE
"A lunge with a bar on my shoulders which has helped me a lot. I push off as fast as I can"

4. GET COMPETITIVE WITH YOUR TRAINING BUDDY OR PT
"We get super competitive - he [my coach] is better at short and I'm better at long sprints so it's game on. I'm starting to think he chooses exercises on purpose because he's better at them"

5. EAT A PROPER BREAKFAST WITH SOME CARBS
"I have porridge no matter the weather, and add fruits and seeds"
