Tennis Tip: The Power of Micropractice
The Power of Micropractice
Daily micropractices — five minutes or so — are effective and often superior to longer weekly practices. The reason being is that on days you don’t practice, skills can erode. You are forced to spend a significant part of the next session or lesson re-learning what you’ve forgotten. When you practice a little each day, skills don’t erode. In fact, they consolidate. It’s like a bank account earning compound interest: a virtuous spiral where skill accrues quickly.
