Serena Williams' core training

Serena Williams workout training routine is what propels her to the top of the women’s tennis world.

In addition to hot yoga, Serena does Pilates for added core strength, correcting alignment issues, and providing balance to the body. When it comes to serving and hitting the ball, tennis players use one side of the body more than the other. This creates more imbalances than other sports so Pilates greatly helps with that issue by strengthening the weaker side and providing more flexibility and greater range of motion. She told Harpers Bazaar, “I wanted to get really fit. I wanted to lose some weight. So I’ve been doing Pilates and yoga, trying to lean out my body so I won’t be bulky.”
