It is always important to learn the strict movement before the kipping movement. Yes, kipping is easier to pick up in most cases versus the strict movement, but there can be harmful implications in beginning with a movement that requires powerful momentum from the core versus a movement that requires body awareness, strength, and learning control over the body.

The wall ball drill comprises two highly functional classical weightlifting movements brought together at light loads and extended duration to create a super- potent metabolic conditioning tool with an enormous potential for increasing athletic performance. When perfected, each shot looks identical to the one before, and the ball’s contact and departure are gentle and smooth. If the athlete endeavors to quiet the drill, the benefit to mechanics and breathing technique are immense.
