IMO you can use kick serve routine but with different grip. When we hit kick serve with continental grip at contact the wrist (flexion/extension) is neutral and racquet string bed is vertical. If we use eastern continental grip the racquet string bed will be closed 45. This would be too much, it should be around 15 - 30.
So, turn the racquet handle 15 - 30 from continental grip in direction of eastern BH grip.
