Look at your form in the video above and then look at a pro. Compare the shoulder usage. Like djoko here. Look at his right shoulder. You can tell those muscles are being used. The shoulder provides power and leverage. Look how their hitting structure (racquet / arm / wrist / angles - relationship) stays intact after the hit.
