    Hi Nik, thanks for the comment.
    I've always been a believer that bad posture is something better addressed in the gym, focusing on strengthening and balancing out the links of the body through targeted exercises with help from a trainer/therapist. By trying to get people thinking about posture via general cues just during their usual playing/training sessions it can become a little forced and unnatural, and often just addresses symptoms of poor posture without doing much to affect the cause. By prioritising making mechanical corrections through devoted physical training off-court first however, this can be more easily transferred into on-court performance.

    Hi Gary. Great thoughts. Perhaps a session on proper posture when playing/training? Am thinking particularly head position (staying forward, chin over toes), could be a valuable lesson.
