Pauline Roussin Bouchard’s Speed Workout

The day before the tournament starts is always a speed workout for Pauline Roussin Bouchard.

Monday is about strength.

Tuesday is for heavy work.

Wednesday, or the day before the tournament, will be a full-body speed workout, to get ready and feel dynamic. This focuses more on her core.

She will also run 5K at some point before the tournament because she already has a high fitness level and, she says, this feels easy for her!

Warm up:

Run on the treadmill 

Kettlebell swings 


Circuit 3 or 4 times 

3 minutes with a weight bar. Beep every 15 seconds which is when you do the exercise, 12 reps with weightlifting exercise, 2 mins of core, 2 mins of cardio (11-12km per hour on the treadmill).

  • Lifting weight bar – explosive power exercise, fast push with each arm and change leg position. 
  • One leg squat with weights in each hand. Leg elevated on bench. 12 reps and swap to the other side.
