    Watched a few minutes of your game. It seems your shot choices have problems. When you're out of position, while your opponent is centralized (due to your previous shot), you play a cross-court drop. This presents a footwork/speed challenge immediately. And you smash when you're behind first doubles line. A simple block to front court immediately causes you problem. Also, repeated play of X-court nets may not be the best.

    Thanks for taking the time to give these valuable advices. I was trying too hard to attack at some point as I was mainly recording and using that opportunity to record my progresses on the attacking side so I definitely smashed when unnecessary sometimes in that video, I usually play a bit safer than that with longer rallies but yes even when I focus better on my game and shot choices I still don’t manage to choose the right shots most of the time I agree with you. Something else I have to work harder on :eek::)

    Let's get back to topic...

    Since the footwork interval training video seems to be rather popular, I took the effort to pay attention to some more detail resulting in two videos (both with the almighty Don, thanks a lot), one with more complex exercises made for intervals of 30 seconds (exercise time==rest time). You can add this to a throughout warmup, especially when you're not used to the motions or add it at the end of your training session to work on your stamina.

    ... and one workout with rather simple exercises that should be done at full speed for an interval of 7 to 10 seconds (exercise time<=rest time) and a break of fixed 10 seconds. This workout only takes around five minutes and should be done at the beginning of your training session (but after warming up properly, of course) to train speed endurance...

    As always, In happy about every hit of the like button, every subscription, and every comment, especially on YouTube.

    I really love these videos. No 10 minutes monologs of a narcistic guy, just the exercise and good music. I got really angry when I find a 20 minutes video of a special mobility, stretch or whatever and you see 19 minutes a guy who reports about his day and so on and you can't even skip to the exercise because it's sneaky hidden inside. Keep on going. I love this "kurz und knackig".:)
