VIDEO TRANSCRIPTION: Hi, I'm Brian Teacher and welcome back to Full Court Tennis. Today, on the second step of the Backhand Volley Challenge, I'm going to show you how to efficiently transfer the energy of your feet through the hit. Now, we're going to use your feet to transfer the energy through the hit in front of our legs to get a little added power. And every time, you got to just pivot and then punch down through the ball with the racquet head slightly open to make sure the ball clears the net. The right elbow straightens right there as you punch through. The wrist is laid back and the shoulder comes through and you move through the ball with your legs. Pressing from the left foot and then picking your right foot up and stretching it forward as the shoulder comes through and the wrist is laid back all the way through the hit you finish the shot in front of your left foot. We're going to work on this over and over again from the ready position. Set the wrist, do a little pivot out with the left foot and the torso just slightly turns right there and then punch and come through. Then again, set the wrist, little unit turn and then punch and transfer and come through from the back foot to the front foot. Keep working on this over and over until it's second nature. These are the keys to starting to have a good backhand volley practice, at least 15 minutes a day until you master each step. Post your progress to the Full Court feed and or hire a coach in app for a virtual lesson. Stay focused, enjoy the process, and always listen to your body.
