Published May 16, 2014 12:11
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"
