Work out the like the pros and your game will dramatically improve! That’s the promise from Half Hour Power – a new innovative resistance training program, designed by trainer and fitness expert Howard Waldstreicher, to give a competitive fitness edge to professional and recreational tennis players. Headlining the groundbreaking 30-minute workout program are ATP tennis number-one doubles team Bob & Mike Bryan and WTA tennis American teen sensation Melanie Oudin.

The Half Hour Power training program is a convenient, yet powerful, fitness program geared to tennis players who want to develop a more explosive first step, quicker recovery, and increased endurance. Demonstrated by The Bryans and Oudin through a 30-minute instructional DVD, the Half Hour Power session combines uniquely designed rubber “power bands” with special exercise routines to deliver multi-directional total body movements, high-intensity resistance training intervals, isometric core stabilization and core reactive training. The Half Hour Power workout requires no heavy or bulky equipment so therefore, is portable and can be used in the gym, at home or practically anywhere on the road.

“Tennis is a game played on our feet and therefore requires our upper and lower extremities to work together in an integrated fashion,” said Waldstreicher. “If you really want to train your core, you need to be standing and you need to challenge your upper and lower body by making both moves simultaneously. Half Hour Power satisfies both of those requirements.”

There isn't a single problem with these balls. They last very long, and are of superb quality.

Prince Tennis Balls last longer than any other brand I have ever played with. They cost a bit more, but you can play with them 3-4 times without even realizing they are not new. They do bounce higher than Penn or Wilson, so great for wet clay. Love them for all surfaces!

The picture which implies there are 2 cans, but I received only 1. I feel cheated! I re-read the description, nowhere does it say 1 can only.

Our ball-crazed Jack Russell gives these 4 paws up. He loves to shred their skin off - takes about 2 hours to make them bald. He then works like crazy to pop their seams. Then we take them away so he can't eat them. He even chases them like a normal dog sometimes. All in all a great success. The bucket of 48 lasted about 6 months for us.If you have a retriever they could last a lifetime.

I'm disabled and have to use a walker to get around. (Hurt in a car wreck. Life sucks sometimes.)
My walker has a little extension in the rear feet that lets you put tennis balls inside and they roll around freely. Regular tennis balls are expensive and wear out. These are comparatively cheap and because they are solid they last MUCH longer than the pressured tennis balls that come in a can. It's not the use the manufacturer had in mind when they made them, but for me they are perfect.

I have used Gamma, Tretorn and Penn pressureless balls and these are the best of the bunch - by a mile. Pressureless balls are firmer than regular balls on off-center and frame shots, but these are not at all objectionable to me and my kids. I have used Penn pressureless balls for instruction, ball machines, and in practice games, including at high altitude. They work great for all purposes. In fact, Penn has perfected pressureless balls to a level where they should price and market them as the primary ball for recreational (non-tournament) play. It pains me to see occassional players hit pressureized balls for an hour, putting very litte wear on the balls, playing them again in a deader form in the future, and ultimately discarding them when pressureless balls would still be perfectly playable. Such a waste of money, resources, and practice time. The fuzz on the Penn pressureless balls (and the other brands) holds up very well. My one gripe is that the lid on the Penn 48-ball bucket is a terrible design. Granted most people will put them in a hopper, but why go to the manufacturing expense of making a bucket and then not put a lid on it that: 1) opens without a crowbar; 2) stays open when you are using it; and, 3) secures down when you close it. So easy to improve, it seems like basic laziness on the part of the design team. In comparing Penn pressureless with Gamma and Tretorn, my experience is that Gamma balls bounce like they are "out-of-round" and get worse the longer they are stored on top of each other - great for improving your reflexes, but wierd to play (I ended up throwing them away while the fuzz was still good) - and Tretorns are like hitting bricks whether you hit on the sweet spot or off.

Lo compre para un regalo , y fue todo un exito.

You have to learn the string and how to avoid it, but it's a great tool for my whole family.
