The success rate for Bump Ups and Bump Downs depends on the child. Some children find it easier to accomplish one as opposed to the other. Because of this, I often introduce Bump Ups and Bump Downs at the same time. Obviously this follows balancing the ball on the strings, rolling the ball around without dropping it and often after introducing “Bounce – Hit.”
In the early stages of learning to control bump ups, the child will be more interested in how many bounces they are able to obtain in total. This allows the child to count further than 1 or 2 and shows early success if even simply counting attemptsat success. As the child develops the ability to bounce the ball successively on the racquet, begin to set goals for the number of times ‘in a row’ the child can continue their control of “Bump Ups.”
For the adult or advanced junior, assume a continental grip and be sure to make contact while keeping the racquet horizontal to the ground. This will improve backspin, continental grip comfort and eventually should improve volleys. Remember to add the arc on your “shot” like shooting a basketball so the ball has a chance to stay inside the hopper!

I have never felt better than after a good Yoga session. How can we help you get more comfortable doing Yoga or with general fitness or “wellness” (as Coach Geo says)? SjB
In the Duluth reGeovinate studio, Coach Geo walks us through a nice Active Warm Up which only takes about 10 minutes. This is from a private Zoom session where the next 50 minutes are not shown here but she works out her clients who have said that they are consistently losing weight and feeling better and better every week! They take 3 sixty minute long private sessions from the comfort of their own home 🙂
In this latest video, Coach Shaun shows us that ANYONE can do some Yoga if you are willing to try. You may not be the fittest or healthiest human on the planet but you know what they say… “The best time to start exercising was 20 years ago. The second best time is right now!” Or maybe that was about planting trees… Either way it works! Do some healthy exercises with us, check out our healthy and tasty recipes (anklebiters.info Blog)
This is another fantastic video of @Geovanna_Brooks doing a nice morning sunrise #Pilates and #Yoga flow from Carson Farm in Carnesville, GA. Let us know what kind of videos you would appreciate: Fitness, wellness, stretching, body-awareness, healthy living – ALL OF IT!
