Train For The Warm Up

It's clear that the quality of the balls that you hit in a practice session don't reflect the amount of actual learning that takes place from that practice. To see if you are actually learning, here's a simple, but very effective, strategy that I have used with students to monitor their progress. The goal is to have the first few balls improve over time. If you are working on the same drills for a month and not seeing direct progress to how quickly it takes you to feel ready or "warmed up", then I would suggest that either the drill you are trying isn't right for your game right now, or you are missing a key detail to the drill. If you are actually learning some new movements, the quality of your first few balls will tend to reflect the ingrained pattern. On the other hand, when you start off poorly, but then gain quality throughout the practice session, it is typically just timing that has improved, not the actual pattern of the movement.
