Watch Roger Federer’s training video before he was famous

Busted Racquet

There are plenty of ways to get in shape, or train for a sport, and we see a new method roll out on DVD, at our local gym or on the Internet at least once a week.

The training that Roger Federer used before he became famous? I'm not sure if it will ever catch on, but it is sure entertaining to watch.

This is a video of Federer training before he was a household name, and if you're a tennis fan, or a fan of watching athletes do what they do behind the scenes, then you should sit back and enjoy this nearly four minute video.

Federer works on his core, his reaction speed and even battles with a partner to see who is the quickest on their feet, and while all of it looks a little strange, I'm not sure we could last 60 seconds going as hard as Federer was at a few of these drills.
