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:

Funny my teaching pro growing up was so anti-hitch. He did not care about the ball toss though. These windy days where fronts are coming through make me long for a lower toss.
