Hello Alois and Jeff,
Gotta question for you guys. Now that I bought my ball collection net I have been practicing my serves as much as possible. The first day I received it I must have served 1000 balls, but today I noticed that my left shoulder is sore. Yes I'm a lefty, but I'm I doing something wrong or should I expect this for my first time using the collection net?
I think after my shoulder starts feeling better I am going to take a video of myself while serving. That way I will be able to see if I am doing something wrong. But just from the amount of time I have used the collection net I can see a lot of improvement in my FH backspin serve and my BH reverse pendulum serve. Which the BH reverse pendulum serve has always been kind of natural to me and very easy to executive. But my FH backspin serves are not as easy to executive for some reason and that might be the reason I am experiencing my shoulder pain.
Any thoughts would be appreciated,
Firstly well done on taking the initiative and practicing you serves so diligently.
The soreness is probably just due to the repetitive serving and is of the shoulder muscles. If the pain remains you may want to see a professional.
Try to keep the shoulder relaxed more. This may help you not on;y with the soreness but also to make the serve more effective.
