Pitfalls of Training

Two Aspects to Consider

Pitfalls of Training
-By Samson Dubina
 
 
In this short article, I’m going to detail the primary two pitfalls that players fall trap to when training with a partner or a robot during footwork drills.
 
Pitfall #1

Looping Flips

Check out these 4 simple tips!

 
 
 
 
Looping flips is one of the most under-developed skills in America.  Nearly everyone trains looping pushes, looping long serves, looping blocks, and even looping loops.  However, the loop against the flip requires a slightly different technique.

Losing
 
I have received this particular question from over 50 of my followers.  I decided that it was time to answer it.  This week, Luis Sergio Chavez wrote, “It would be great if you could cover also the mental strength aspects or techniques to mentally recover from 0-4 where you are the one who made 4 mistakes in a row.  I would love to learn from your experience and knowledge on how to get back on track.”

Devastate the Underdog

Learn Proper Preparation

 
 
 
 
 
I estimate that over 50% of upsets could have been avoided!
Let me explain...
 
 
 
 
As soon as the upset happens, there is usually a whirlwind of excusing flying all across the gym.  Some of them are non-sense.  Some of them are legit.
I have often heard excuses like…
“I didn’t warm-up before the match.”
“I thought he was easy; I won 3-0 last time we played.”
“I was just so hungry, that I couldn’t concentrate.”
“I started off the first game just trying out some new fancy shots.”
