I'm thinking about getting this, Spinfire Pro 2 ball machine:

go talk to andre agassi. his dad invented a machine that would spit a ludicrous number of balls at his kids, at high speed. little andre, at like 6 years old, would have to hit the balls as soon as they bounced off the ground or they'd go over his reach. and that is why he was the greatest off-the-rise returner ever.

if you're looking for a book to read, his autobiography is great.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: extensive tempo (7 km) OR fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
wednesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

dope.. any footage of that? just searched, couldn't find any. probably a good chance that there's no footage, would be cool to see though.
