Warm up before and stretch after

Before engaging in any physical activity, it is important to prepare your muscles for wear and tear. We should never start playing padel intensively without having done a previous warm-up. They should dedicate at least 10 minutes of warm-up, doing aerobic exercises to put the muscles in the correct tone. The main goal of muscle warm-up is to avoid injury. When we do cold physical activity, muscles and ligaments are more prone to injury, and this is even more likely when we have not trained for a long time.

First you must do a general warm-up, for example jogging inside the track for 5 minutes. Later, you can move on to a specific warm-up, such as jumps, sprints, swing movements with the dominant arm and exercises that involve the knees such as squatting. The final moment of the warm-up is a light rally, to warm up and prepare our racket for a more intense padel. Stretching should only be done at the end of physical activity.

Resume strength and endurance training

Before starting to play padel at the same level of intensity prior to the vacation break, it is important to gradually resume physical condition, strength and endurance. These three elements are of vital importance to avoid injuries and to regain good performance. A muscle that lacks strength is a muscle that is more prone to injury. That is why it is always recommended to dedicate time to physical training, doing strength exercises such as push-ups, squats and weight lifting. In fact, many players complement their preparation with workouts in the gym, to strengthen all the muscles of the body.

Spend time on technique

Once you have regained muscle strength and physical condition, it is time to look for the best padel rackets and get back on the slopes. After a long rest, physical form is not the only thing that is lost, it also decreases the ability and technique to play padel. The most advisable thing is to go back to the basics and attend padel classes, even if you are an experienced player. With the help of a monitor, you will be able to put into practice all the strokes, movements and advantages that are needed to play a game. With this type of training, you can once again have the correct technique to perform shots, volleys and trays, as well as positioning and all the keys to a game, both defensively and offensively.
