Want to make your forehand faster, more powerful, and fluid? Want to have all that and still maintain balance and control? Then sit on a bucket!
Sit on a 5 gallon bucket or an exercise ball(advanced) inside the baseline, facing the net post..in a semi-open forehand stance. Have a partner feed balls slowly to your forehand and hit them back deep and with topspin. What will this do, besides get you some funny looks at the park?
- you’ll see how important it is for your shoulders to stay level at all times
- you’ll see the importance of hitting through the ball and following through with a good shoulder turn
- you’ll see how good posture helps you maintain balance, essential for racket-head speed (an exercise ball REALLY works on your balance)
Improve your forehand sitting down…sit on a bucket for power and control.
