    Hey, I'm back for my obligatory annual update. :rolleyes:

    Hit up the usual joint probably one last more time with my usual partner. Wasn't expecting anything, so didn't set up to film. It's been a...

    Go in that stance with your hand forward and feel your lower back. Now put your hand on your leg and support yourself.

    It's actually an ancient form, passed down from generation to generation,...

    Had a big revelation when doing shadow footwork a few days ago. Now when I think about it, it's obvious.

    I have a bad habit of straightening out my legs and pushing up after a stroke. So even if...

    Pretty sure you're gonna gain more speed and spin from the mechanics of the wrist and forearm than what you'd supposedly lose kinematically from being loose. Except if you mean momentarily tensing up...

    Yeah, the depth aspect is the hardest. I think I can do a pretty decent side-to-side drill, or get the occasional easy ball in random play. Any forward or backward, especially if it's subtle, and it...

    It's been a while, but I got the chance to hit again. Because I haven't posted in a hundred years or so, I'm in black.

    Nice stroke economy. Did you do pencils first for the last ones or just directly?

    Trained today. Took a lot of footage. 99% of the time it's picking up the ball, and nothing very remarkable happened so I'm not gonna weed through all the crap to edit it.

    Aerodynamics of the swing? I don't think we're moving our bodies enough for aerodynamics to realistically come into play with anything but the ball.

    The only thing I'm sure it is is spin avoidance. At least it really does feel so. Without it I don't have any time to do anything to the ball, it just flings off.

    I'm still not understanding what...

    Why do you need to do more drives, blocks and topspins? Do you lose in the pushing game and don't even get to play your game?

    Alright. I'll try to get my serve tighter, and tell my partner to push randomly next time. I posted some other videos as well from today, much of the same stuff. Serve's still not anywhere near where...

    Nice timing! I just got home. Yeah, that's about it. The drill worked enough to feel that I got something out of it. It could just be placebo but I feel that today was slightly better. ...

    Alright.

    We've done some drills before where I push fast and deep, he loops and I counterloop close to table. It's hard to get spin on it and not just smack it. I'll work on that more next time.

    @UpSideDownCarl

    What do you suggest for a random drill? Start out with my partner pushing deep off my serve anywhere on the table, then random placement blocks along that wing?
