    You don't say your level of play or how long you have been playing so my generic response would be . .

    1) Seek out a coach and learn proper technique.

    1a) With the coach create your specific training plan

    2) Learn, practice and execute a split step, this is an essential step in explosive movement

    Hi,

    I do that split step and I do a lot of exercises that improve footwork and so on ... but what i really want to know is specific exercises to boost my quickness and to give explosiveness to my game!

    Get a coach, you can get a coaching session for about the price of restringing a racquet.

    Did you trying searching previous posts? This is a post I made a while ago that would apply to your question.

    WoOZY, I am a similar build and these are a few of the things I do. Not only does it improve stamina it will make your court movements more efficient so it is a double gain.

    Black Knight Shadow Trainer:

    The Shadow Trainer has 4 different speed settings, and each speed as a normal or turbo setting. You can adjust the length of the rally and target court areas, front, back, right side, left side or full court. It is also nice because you can do it alone, before or after your partners are there.

    Shuttle Pickup Drills:

    Shuttle pick up drill can be done a few ways. We usually start with the 2 birds in the back forehand corner, pick one up return to centre then place it in backhand corner, repeat this until the birds have been in all corners and are returned to where they started. You can add side rails and front and back centre too if you want. With this drill we sometimes race against an opponent on the other side of the net doing the same drill. (people work a little harder when they're competing)

    All of them more fun than running to improve stamina, in my opinion.

    Steve
