Dammit! How hard can it be to just turn and drop the racquet!? Still not doing the pat the dog, even while chanting it in my head! In my mind I was going 'hey this pat the dog thing really works'! Then I looked at the video and wtf, it looks the same as before! Having said that, there is some subtle change somewhere-- the forearm seemed more relaxed, and power was coming easier.
I see the little loop you were talking about Limp. Row 1 column 2 is ok but the hand goes up again making the little loop. I think I should eliminate row 2 completely.
Will keep on working it. Maybe without the ball first.
