Introduction to the Forehand Progressions
Welcome to the forehand progressions section of the website. In this section we’re going to assume you don’t know how to hit a forehand. Through a series of steps –- progressions –- we’re going to build you up to a fundamentally sound forehand.
The way we’ve taught the forehand in this section differs from how we presented the forehand in the fundamentals section of the website. In that section we went chronologically through the forehand. We highlighted what every good player does when they hit that shot. However, knowing what a good player does when they hit a forehand doesn’t necessarily teach you how to hit the shot. The ordering of our lessons in this section is designed to build you up to a fundamentally sound shot. For example, we start with the contact point and follow through in this section, as opposed to the pivot and shoulder turn, because understanding your contact point is absolutely critical to hitting the forehand correctly.
If you’re able to follow these progressions and master the forehand we teach in this section, you’ll be well positioned to take that shot to the next level and turn it into a major weapon.
