suprination (or what ever it's called) is supposed to be natural movement of the arm once your arms cannot go anymore forward during a backhand drive. I don't think many pro players intentionally suprinate. If you stay in place , do a backhand swing, and try not to supriinate at the end, you'll feel your elbow trying to lock out and hyper extending (correct me on this term). Instead of that hyper extension of the elbow, your arm will naturally suprinate to take the excess forward momentum of the racquet. If I were you, focus on making the backhand more forward, with a little bit of low to high rather than low to high with a little forward.
