Being a teenager Victoria Azarenka could eat whatever she wanted: she thought if she was training for five hours a day, she should have spent more than enough calories. But being a grown-up she realized that even with high energy consumption, she should watch out for calories in foods. Otherwise, agility on the court will be impossible.
Now, instead of meat for lunch and dinner, the girl orders lean fish or chicken and for garnish she has fresh vegetables and lettuce. And very rarely she touches the pastry and sweets. Even her favourite chocolate ice-cream, Victoria substitutes with frozen berry yogurt.
She still trains for five hours a day, mastering the techniques. And before the most difficult matches, a fitness trainer Mike Guevara arrives from LA to prepare her to the game.
Together they work on coordination, balance and speed in order to not to do any extra movements on a court. They hung a rope to the ceiling and do push-ups with feet balancing in the air – exercise is complicated, but effective.
Mike even makes Victoria run around the court and catch tennis balls. At the same time, the girl has a special belt attached to her waist, like a baby walker’s. In such a way Mike controls every her movement.
Sometimes, right on the court they spread a rope ladder and Victoria is running from one gap to the other lifting knees as high as possible.
The main thing in any game that is important to Victoria Azarenka is her good mood. Therefore, it is important to warm up properly. It lasts 45 minutes and it is usually composed of different exercises. Sometimes she turns on music out loud and starts dancing, then jumps on the site, and then runs. And sometimes, she goes straight to the room, stands on the platform and exercises for almost half an hour.
The main thing is not to do anything that is against your own nature, and then the effect of the training will be excellent.
