How can I stay relax when I'm on the move? When doing footwork, my strokes become very tense, that's why I'm very inconsistent when doing footwork drills. It's very hard for me to relax when moving. Any tips?
This is a difficult part of the game and the reason it is important to do a lot of footwork training. It is natural that when you legs are working hard, you tend to tighten your arm as well. When doing your footwork training, try to focus on hit, move, stop and hit. While you are moving your legs are working hard, but when you are hitting you need to relax especially your arm and upper body. Do a lot of repetitive drills and you will start to get the feel of this.
This is a difficult concept for a lot of players. Start off by doing the footwork training really slowly so that you have time to focus on these aspects.
