🎾Join in on our Forehand Volley Challenge! Challenge yourself and grow your skills. Part 8 of 11.

VIDEO TRANSCRIPTION: Hi, I'm Brian Teacher, welcome to Full Court Tennis, today on the 8th step of the Forehand Volley Challenge, I'm going to show you how to release your wrist, get more power and still keep control. Get that right foot out, rotate the torso, push through that right foot and uncoil the torso. See how the shoulder then comes through and the left arm releases as the left foot and leg stretches forward to make contact way out in front with the  wrist laid back at contact. Then press through the hot and snap through releasing the wrist with feel for more power. Here we go, right there.The hit is in front and then you're snapping through the hit to pop the ball a little bit more.  Now this Challenge is is a very advanced level so you have to learn how to first do all the other previous sequences to learn how to press through the shot completely before you learn how to snap through it. So everything happens quick, setting the wrist, moving the feet right there the right foot is already turned out to the right.The wrist is going to lay back and Nick is  going to use his legs, load the torso right there and then he's going to step out and everything's going to come through and press through the hit onto the left foot. Look at that contact point way In front. Nick is going to press and then snap through it right there and here it is again. Snap, there we go and  see the shoulders right through to the hit with the wrist aid back at and through contact and then he feels the release and snap through. Everything's got to uncoil and  come through the hit first in a proper kinetic chain. The snap is at the end of the whole sequence so you got to learn the timing of this shot to be able to master it and get a little bit more punch through the hit. Try practicing 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.
