Breathe Man, Breathe!

This applies to YOU!!!!!!!!!!

 
 
 
 
Breathe Man, Breathe!
 
Breathing both BETWEEN points and DURING the point is a very important, and often neglected, aspect of the game!  Players who have learned to properly exhale at contact improve their timing, power, mental focus, and endurance.
 
So how do you test it?
 
Just warmup forehand to forehand.  Is it natural for you to exhale with each hit?  If it feels unnatural, you probably haven’t been doing it!  Now play some points, ask a spectator to stand close and listen for the exhale and watch your chest. 

Optimist vs Pessimist

Which are you???????

Weak Points
 
In matches, should you use specific patterns or should you just hit anywhere?  Well, you always want to keep your opponent off-balance while realizing that there are specific shots and locations that commonly cause errors from your opponent.  Today, I’m going to outline a six basic patterns.
(Note:  There are actually hundreds of these patterns.  I’m just listing six as a starting point)
