One Tweak A Week: Quick Adjustment To Help You Strike The Tennis Ball With More Focus


– Hey, welcome to Unleash Your Tennis. My name’s Joel and my mission is to share
my tennis knowledge with you so that you can improve your tennis game and play your best tennis. In this week’s Tweak of the Week lesson, I want to share a very simple tweak that can help you to
improve your concentration and relieve some tension from your shots. Now, this small little tweak is about paying more
attention to your breathing. So, let me explain further. When we are hitting with a friend, or let’s say, hitting with an opponent, where we’re executing a back swing, we tend to breath in naturally, but some players tend to hold their breath as they strike the ball. They become very tense. So, what I want you to do is to exhale deliberately
when you strike the ball. So, let me demonstrate. As you execute the back swing, right, we will breathe in naturally. As we swing, we want to breathe out. So, you can do this. (deep breaths) Just blow out. (deep breaths) In live situation, when you
are really hitting the ball, do this. You will that you can
improve your concentration and also relieve the tension. All right. So, if I’m to strike the ball here, I breathe in, (deep breaths) again, (deep breaths) and one more. (deep breaths) Okay? So, focus on your exhale, exhale deliberately,
when you strike the ball. I hope you find today’s
lesson useful and applicable to your tennis game. If you like these bite-sized lessons, be sure to hit the red button below and subscribe to Unleash

  1. After playing tennis for decades I still hold my breath when striking the ball – which mutes the balls pace. I need to take an hour each day, shadow swing in my back yard & exhale loudly each time until it becomes an unconscious habit. An important topic that I have not seen brought up before. Thanks
