1. Load and Lunge: This weight-transfer drill will help you hit with big power in instances when you’re forced to hit on the run.
 
CLICK HERE for a video demonstration of the drill.

2. Lower-Body Positioning: To prevent injury and load up more power for your ground strokes, keep your lower body facing toward the net.
 
CLICK HERE for a video demonstration of the drill.
 
3. Hover The Line: Keep your head still when changing direction to minimize extra steps, especially when forced out wide.
