It's also about the quality of your repetitions.
Quality has two key ingredients:
• Awareness of the movement.
• Accuracy of the movement.
Awareness means knowing the precise "feel" and look of what you want and ALSO what is on both sides of what you want.
You want to hit the ball reasonably straight. Learning to slice it and learning to hook it is the awareness that you need. When you know what it feels like to slice it and to hook it... You can learn to hit it straight much faster.
Accuracy means doing whatever you have to do to make sure at least 75% of your repetitions are correct otherwise you're just reinforcing old habits.
Go slower, go smaller or even do it without a ball... whatever you need to do to make sure a high percentage of your repetitions are accurate.
When you combine Awareness and Accuracy with a Zone Mindset:
You WILL supercharge your skills improvement process.
