Alternate Keep Ups - Teicnic White

We are continuing to provide you with the new Teicnic Badminton White videos. Today we're looking at an alternate keep-ups exercise...

This exercise involves the player making continuous keep-ups with a shuttle using a v-grip on the forehand side and thumb grip on the backhand side making changes as needed. The player should try to make small movements and keep in a lunge position with racket foot in front. The player will also use their non-racket arm for balance.

The full video is available on the embed video link below which will take you to our Youtube channel. Make sure you are subscribed to the Youtube channel so you don't miss out on any of the new content being uploaded each week!
