Re: Has practicing on pillows helped with your speed or control

Hey Jay,

Ari Hoenig

Hey guys,

Re: SPEED MEMORY

Well, it depends how effective your practice routine is. If you have a solid practice routine and you spend a reasonable amount of time on it each day, it'll feel like riding a bike because you'll...

Re: Clenching problem
