A high ball toss (or [gasp] even a slight hitch) may make a teaching pro cringe like dragging fingernails across a chalkboard.
But getting the chest up, and "forming a bow shape" so you can "cartwheel shoulder over shoulder", is undoubtedly better for your shoulder than rushing it from too low a toss with form that causes impingement.


But I hear you.

I struggle with the same thing, sometimes worse than others, but most often if I am not serving/practicing serve for even a relatively short period of time.

I wish I could do the following, even if I haven't served in a couple of weeks:
