The Little Monkey Drum

The little monkey drum is a great illustration of the Lock and Roll movement: visualize the drum as your core (chest and abdominals), the handle as your legs, and the two strings and attached balls as your arms.

  1. When the handle rotates, the strings start to move.
  2. The balls attached to the strings hit the drum effortlessly.
  3. Your body should imitate this exact movement.

Tennis tip: this movement is how a professional tennis player moves their body to hit the ball powerfully, yet with very little effort. Want to learn more about how to apply this simple yet effective movement to all your strokes and enhance your tennis training?
