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 we get to have Eddie and Webby giving us our pickleball challenge. I have never seen them play pickleball like most of our Pickleball pros, but they are pros on the mike! I have loved listening to them and love their humor. Like in true Eddie and Webby fashion we get an awesome challenge that will surely get us sweating!

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! Eddie and Webby did such a good job of giving us a bunch of workouts that we haven’t seen yet. Core and leg strengthening are so valuable regarding our game. Increase our control and power in order to increase our ability to do what we want on the court.

3. How it relates to pickleball

Hitting against the wall is important to focus on technique and not just hitting against the wall. make sure you keep your weight on the lead foot and not the back foot when hitting the ball against the wall. Increase difficulty by hitting forehand to back hand and making sure you switch lead foot depending on if its backhand or forehand.

That was in keeping with true Eddie and Webby style! If you need a modification for the squat or want to make the knee plank more challenging this will help.

@Webby and Eddie, this was both entertaining and a good workout! Love the trick shots and associated exercises. Made the workout fun. I was reminded of how incredibly weak my core is, thanks for that. :smirk:

I completed my workout today around 11:30. No action shots today. We had limited time and my photographers were outside for “recess” before the rain moved in. Thank you to both @Webby and @eddienotwebby for a core burning workout.

Lots of modifications were used for this workout, including the ball. Used CJ’s modifications to save my knees and modified the ball (foam) to save the plaster in my old house walls. Really cold and rainy here today… Thanks Eddie and Webby!

You guys are hilarious! Way to make this workout fun, even though it was a killer ab workout and my legs about died ending with a 90 second wall squat!

@eddienotwebby and @Webby thank you guys for this workout. it took me all day to do it but I did it. Lots of core and those wall sits at the end were killer. I think this was sneaky tough for sure! Time for an Epsom salt bath and bed.

I’ve been crossing my fingers that someone would successfully attempt the Twirly Bird Special, or DMD @eddienotwebby and @Webby! I can tell it must really take a lot of training to pull off those moves!
