When a coach references hitting out in front, he/she generally means that the contact is between the plane of the body and the net, as opposed to a late contact which would be behind the plane of the body.
Sounds good. I was taking more into account the leverage you get from a proper hitting structure with arm position and grip and angular momentum more than the leverage you also get from behind physically behind the ball which is why I brought up the running forehand on the dead one situation.
