Whether you like more gallant to paste over the forehead or leisurely is placed on the chest, the power comes from the strength, by foot, hip to the reaction from the waist, with back forces rather than the arm pull. Grasp of most beginners is too narrow. Hands pulled high, generally above the head, hands holding the rubber, a right angle with the arms.
