Tennis Forehand Technique - Power Without "Swinging"

In this video, you'll learn the secret forehand technique that creates power without "swinging".

It's all based on the "stretch shortening cycle" which basically means your body acts like a rubber band.

The more you stretch it, the more potential energy is unleashed into the ball, when you release it.

The technique is, you keep your hands in front of your body, and you act like you're having a tug-of-war with the racket... as the racket stays in place, you rotate your hips away from the racket, creating a stretch in your core.

Then, as you release the tension... as you rotate your hips forward into the court, the racket head "lags" behind, and lays into the ball... creating massive power on your groundstrokes, without an actual "backswing".

This technique is fantastic to use when you don't have time to use a full take back of the racket... or if you're playing a heavy hitter that is pounding the ball deep near the baseline.

It's also great to develop confidence in your ideal contact point and never be late on your strokes!
