Forehand Videos

I am documenting my tennis progress through a number ofย videos posted on my Instagram profile. I thought it would be interesting to group together the videos of each shot on a page on my blog, in order to easily view my progress. Below you can find videos related to my forehand training, in chronological order, with the most recent at the top.

โ€ข Warm Up โ€ข I recently tested out the @newbalanceuk top I got during my London shopping trip – it is great for warming up in and adds a bit of colour to my otherwise all-black outfit! There are a couple of things I still need to work on for my forehand, and it is really useful to take videos to see what I need to improve, e.g.: ๐ŸŽพ I have a strange bend in my left arm and I need to straighten it out as I take the racket back ๐ŸŽพ I tend to pause the racket low in the swing, whereas I should pause it higher up and then swing it fast, in one go (if that makes sense!) Anyway, onwards and upwards! ๐Ÿ”›๐Ÿ”œ๐Ÿ” #tennis #tennisgirl #tennislove #tennisrally #tennislife #tennistraining #tennispractice #tennisforlife #tenniseveryday #tennispassion #tennisaddict #tennisoutfit #lovetennis #instatennis #instatennisstar #forehand #forehandtraining

Practising my forehand top-spin with the TopSpinPro (click my affiliate link for more information)

โ€ข Indoor Tennis Training โ€ข The tennis court we usually go to on a Sunday is being refurbished, but it turned out to be a good excuse for me to dress up in my @sweatybetty tennis dress and practice indoors with our new @topspinpro ๐ŸŽพ๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ There are some great videos online with footwork drills you can do with the TopSpinPro, and I hope to try them out in the future and post about them on my blog. In the meantime, I have been researching adult tennis training camps for my blog – check out my latest post (link in bio) on a unique tennis academy in Spain -@equeliteferrero – that uses the @playsight system. #tennis #tennistraining #tennispractice #tennisplayer #tennispassion #tenniscamp #topspinpro #boomerang #tennislesson #tennisgirl #tennislife #tennislove #lovetennis #tennisdress #instatennis #tennismotivation #tennisaddict #blogger #blogpost

โ€ข Speed Goals โ€ข One day I plan to go this fast on the court! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Actually the reason for speeding up the video was because I wasn't doing very well with a lazy left arm and slow legs (partly due to the HIIT session we had just completed!) Anyway, even when my training hasn't gone very well and I don't feel like I have improved much, I nevertheless always feel better for the exercise and have loads of fun! ๐ŸŽพ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ I used a new app (VideoSplash) to produce this black and white video where only I would be in colour – I think it worked pretty well! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ #tennis #forehand #tennistraining #tennispractice #tennislesson #tennislessons #tennisaddict #tennisgirl #tennislife #tennislove #lovetennis #tennisfashion #wintertennis #tennispassion #tenniscourt #videosplash #blackandwhite #coloursplash #instatennis #tennismotivation #tennisfitness

โ€ข "Good, good, good" โ€ข Don't worry, I'm not praising myself! Those of you who saw my last post and/or read my latest blog post (link to blog in bio) will have heard that my partner is very supportive in helping me improve my tennis ๐ŸŽพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™Œ And here is an example of him practicing with me and being super encouraging (not sure you can hear well, you need audio on max, but he says good after each shot!) and I even hit the balls he sends me that are out! Well, most of the time… ๐Ÿ˜Š #tennis #tennispractice #tennistraining #tennislesson #tennislessons #forehand #tennisgirl #tennispartner #tennislife #tennisaddict #tennisobsessed #instatennis #instatennisstar #tennislove #lovetennis Wearing: #oyshofitness #adidastennis
