This video looks at a training method/exercise you can use to improve consistency and control in your game in a pressured situation. In this exercise you work through several of the fundamental and key shots, so forehand and backhand drive, forehand and backhand topspin, pushes and open ups. The goal is to reach 25 in a row without a mistake in each of these shots, this means you have to work at a controlled pace and focus on consistency so mistakes are reduced. If you make a mistake in any of the shots, you start again from zero until you can reach 25, this adds a pressured element to the exercise as you now have the fear of missing exactly like the feeling some players get in match play.
In this video we include:
– Demonstration and explanation of the 25 rule exercise
– Tips to help
– Reasons why this is effective
– What to avoid
