Forehand Power | Why You SHOULDN'T Follow Through

Federer's 5 Forehand Secrets: Subscribe to this channel: Every coach tells you to follow through. But is that hurting your strokes? First, we have to define what a follow through is. A follow through is the natural motion of the body and racket that happens after a relaxed shot. And here lies the problem of trying to “following through”. If you’re focused on where your racket is finishing, you might be putting the racket in the right spot. But, did it add any power or spin to the shot? One thing you’ll hear a lot of coaches say is to finish high, or finish over your shoulder. But let’s look at this here. And I see this a lot at the club level. Players finishing over their shoulder… but the ball has almost no pace or spin on it, because the follow through isn't a natural result of the hitting action, and instead, the "finishing position" is reached after the ball has left the strings and the racket has stopped. If there’s an opponent standing on the other side he would absolutely crush this ball. But If you’re relaxed, and your contact point is correct meaning your arm is on a 45 degree angle into the court with some kind of extension, so you’re not t-rexing it… the follow through will happen automatically. It happens on it’s own. It’s a natural result of the shot you just hit. Sometimes it can be beneficial to practice getting your follow through into a certain position as a general guide… but for most 3.0-3.5 players I see which is for the majority of players watching this video, it’s much more important to be relaxed, get the contact point in front, and then just let the follow through happen on it’s own. So when some people say “do the buggy whip” like Nadal… That’s fine and all, and it’s a great technique for creating topspin. And there’s situations you want to use that. But don’t put the cart before the horse. The buggy whip, for example happens from actually creating a bunch of topspin by going low to high as you approach contact, that the racket runs out of room… so it just goes up and kind of helicopters around. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Roger Federer's Forehand Secrets | Osatennis360" -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Do Long Follow-Throughs On Tennis Forehands And Backhands Really Work? If you've been in tennis for a while you've surely heard tips like "stay long with the ball", "extend after the contact", "have a long follow-through" and so on. Is this a good advice or just another coaching gimmick? Yes, in fact, it's a good advice that all of us tennis coaches actually use in our strokes as we all need to play very accurately with our students. We have found that having a very long follow-through really does help with control and accuracy and it has become a natural part of our stroke technique. If you click over to my site you'll also see examples of Andre Agassi and Serena Williams giving the same type of advice in their online courses. So give the long follow-through - or extending through the contact zone idea - a try and share your experience in the comments below.

Swing A Tennis Racket Like A Weight Instead Using It Like A Tool One of the most common problems in the game of tennis is that players don't use their whole body to hit strokes and they don't swing their rackets. Instead they typically just use their arms to move their racket around and that is a very straining way of playing tennis that sometimes results in injuries. Instead of getting to technical with explanations of the kinetic chain and how you need to engage your body segments in the correct sequence, we can cut through all those technicalities with a more simple approach. Use your racket more like a weight and less like a tool. That's the topic of this week's article and I invite you to check it out and see where I am going with this idea. I'll show you how using your racket like a weight encourages you to use your body more and swing the racket more effortlessly. You'll also learn many reasons why you may be using your racket like a tool and not like a weight as this is a very common problem in tennis.
