Miami, FL- My favorite day of the week is Sunday and one of my favorite past times is “dragging my feet” around town. This requires pure one-hundred percent laziness. In fact, I choose not to even tie my shoes on Sundays. One reason is they always come untied and since I’m lazy it really goes hand in hand, hold on, I mean step by step with dragging your feet.
Now if you have read this far you must be wondering where this story is going. I had a tennis student recently tell me after he missed one of his famous sizzling forehands: “Is it because I’m a lazy mover? I don’t move my feet”. I thought about it for a few seconds and I said: “It’s not that your feet are lazy. It’s that your footwork lacks discipline.”
Almost instantly, he had an “aha moment”. After all, he realized he was capable of moving his feet into the proper sequence, balance and spacing it was just at times he was lazy. Like me on Sundays where I’m not really putting much care into lifting my souls off the pavement on my way to the ice cream shop for a berry smoothie.
This is one reason we do a lot of agility work and footwork exercises in our classes. These workouts make students aware of their feet and how they move in coordination with the rest of the body as you strike a tennis ball. It can be frustrating to know you need to “move your feet” but they still don’t respond.
No worries. I have a solution and I know how you feel. Just don’t ask me to demonstrate on Sunday.
