I got into a situation where a Lady trains me in fitness while I train her at the table in exchange.
She is a good hitter,but she struggles with brushing the ball.
While I am of course knowledgeable about the off-table exercises we struggle on the table.
I wonder how could I get her to brush the ball more while at the table.
I have already showed her all no-partner exercises I know but when she does them I am for no use.
I have tried to feed her with multiball but if I feed no-spin she hits - and if I feed backspin she either hits through or fails.
When I am normally passively blocking to her,she either throws the ball over my head or hits flat.
I have also tried blocking using my longpips so that it reflects her own spin level.
But still she misses or hits.
I am not a trainer - but I am the only person around willing to teach her.
I wonder what could I do better or if my approaches are at least a bit correct.
I would start slowly on the table and feed her the ball with a throw feed and see if she can get the contact of the ball. Then if she gets comfortable with that, start to hit the ball back very slowly, perhaps just once or twice in a row. Build her confidence in brushing the ball initially.
