Performance Factors on Forehand Strokes - Cyril Genevois


It’s no secret that the forehand is the dominant wing on the majority of players, and is the single biggest advantage a player can create at the baseline.
In “Performance Factors of Forehand Strokes” at The World Tennis Conference, GPTCA certified coach Cyril Genevois reveals:
  • How racket speed is REALLY produced on the forehand and how to create more of it.
  • YES, the kinetic chain is key.  But there are two links that have a greater impact on forehand velocity than the others.
  • Why your non-dominant arm has such a massive impact on POWER, and exactly what it should be doing at every phase of the stroke.
If that weren’t enough, Cyril shows live video footage working with several high-level players.
The forehand fundamentals are universal and can be taught by any player.  Along with a blueprint for perfect forehand technique, you’ll also learn:
  • The RIGHT way to use a medicine ball to improve forehand power (most trainers get this wrong).
  • The right timing in the upper limbs to produce maximum velocity
  • How “Lag and Snap” REALLY works… and why you should never “try” to do this.
The forehand is the most dominant (and preferred) groundstroke weapon across most levels, and most players.
“Performance Factors of Forehand Strokes” not only breaks down the science of a biomechanically efficient forehand, but it also gives you real, actionable, and practical ways to start creating more pace on your forehand.
