Kyle Yates - @Kyle_Yates
Detailed instructional outline by @PickleballPhil
1. What are we doing
Setting aside ANOTHER 19 minutes to complete ANOTHER awesome challenge! We do this in order to grow together as a community and build habits that are going to keep us moving forward towards our ultimate goals! Today Kyle Yates is going to take us through a brutal quad and calf workout, with a forearm trunk workout. As I’m writing this I am honestly nervous about this one because the competitive side of me wants to come out and do the same weight Kyle did…yeah…if I do that I won’t be able to walk so, less weight for me.
2. Why it works
Remember your brain is hardwired to function within routine and habits. Try to do your drills at the same time in your routine! How are you guys doing regarding finding a place to insert doing these drills on a consistent basis? Are you finding it easier or harder? I feel like a redundant individual, but so much of pickleball is the same types of hits, the same repetitions that are going to help us improve. Keep it up with the squats and leg strengthening in order to improve our ability in order to improve our agility and strength on the courts.
3. How it relates to pickleball
I’m not known for my soft touch and eye hand coordination I spent my years honing in on footwork and strategy. It’s all about finding the weakness in Soccer and making sure that I am patient enough to do that. When it comes to quickness I can tell you that it makes it so points that would normally be done, aren’t because of the increase in speed. Keep working on these drills and your speed and strength will improve, thus keeping the points alive.
