Pool Lesson | Six Steps to Improve


Today I want to show you how my training session
looks and how you can adjust it in the best way to fit your own needs and you can win
a brand new cue! Yes you heard right. You can win a new cue. I recently got sponsored by Lucasi and got

that you’re subscribed to my channel and leave a comment under this video. The winner will be announced in one month
from now! And the next surprise or giveaway will be
at 75k subscribers. So if you aren’t subscribed yet make sure
to hit the button. And now let’s start with todays lesson. Training is big part of improving in pool. Of course you can gain a lot of strength,
experience and convidence by playing matches and you should definetly do this. But some parts of your game just need to be
trained. Today I am showing you a possible training
routine that you can adjust depending on how much time you have, your personal skill level
and your weaknesses. And by the way: You can find a seperate video
to everything I am showing you here in the video description. So if you’re watching this in the pool hall
for example, you could do the exact training routine that I will show you. And now let’s start our training! In the beginning it’s very important to not
just start with a really difficult drill but to slowly get in stroke. So we’re putting all the balls on the table
and play them really loose in a random order. While doing this make sure that you don’t
analyse if you miss, don’t train specific shots and so on. Just play and get loose. Do this until you’re feeling well, then raise
the difficulty a little bit by either trying to run solids and then stripes, run one group
and the group other in order, or transition like I did here into straight pool. It depends on your favorite game or the game
you have to play in the next tournament, league day and so on. After 10 to 15 minutes you should be in stroke
and can start with the training. After getting in stroke I am working a little bit on my
pre shot routine and my stroke. You could either do this with this drill where
you just have to make the ball with a stop and then go back and forth. Make sure that you really take the time here
to concentrate on your pre shot routine and your stroke. What you could also do is to put 15 balls
on the table like this. Ball in hand on every shot and play 50 to
100 balls. And here you can also adjust by moving the
cueball further away or closer to the balls, depending on your skill level. I do this for around 30 minutes because a
proper technique and pre shot routine is very very important. We’re in stroke now, we worked on our pre
shot routine and technique, and now can work on certain weaknesses of our game. You can now choose if you want to train on
cueball control, speed control, your shotmaking ability, defensive game, kicking, banking,
jumping, breaking and so on. As I said it depends on you. I for example do a drill that will just train
my cueball control. I invest around 30 minutes into a drill, so
that it’s not too long but long enough to get really commited to it. And in the next training session I for example
replace this drill with working on my break, in the next session I will work on jump shots
and so on. It’s important that you don’t do the same
thing everytime. Now that we trained a certain part of your
game we can switch to a drill that requires everything. I do this drill here that trains my shotmaking
of course but also my short positional and long positional
game. The nice thing about this drill is that you
can adjust the skill level. More about that is explained in the seperate
video. I also do this for around 30 minutes. Okay we got in stroke, we worked on our technique,
worked on a specific part of our game, did a drill that requires to put everything
together, and now we’re playing a race against the ghost. This will simulate a match situation. Every mistakes will be punished. You can play against the 8, 9 or 10 ball ghost. But you could also play against the 5 or 6
ball ghost, with 9 ball rules. I for example train against the 12 ball ghost,
with 9-Ball rules. It depends on your skill level again. The link to the full match is also in the
video description. Okay, the match should have taken around 30
minutes again. And now I am doing one last thing, that tests
your technique and trains your shotmaking, because making balls is obviously very important. But: It also trains your mental strength. I am doing the around the clock drill, were
I have 24 shots on the table. This is the best drill to train your patience
and mental ability. And at the end you can write your score down
and compare your development from session to session. This will probably take around 20 – 25 minutes. Okay now we did a training of around 3 hours. If you have more time just play a longer race
against the ghost or invest more time in the drills or your technique Or add an additional drill. Depending on your personal needs. If you have less time maybe don’t play the
match against the ghost or remove a drill. As I said all the links are in the video description. If you have any questions feel free to write

  11. My wife and I got a pool table when I retired from the military, so I am late in picking up the game. Your videos have been a great help.

  12. Getting lose is something I have never done much. I always go straight to trying to play a rack. But I found myself doing your second step before leagues yesterday. Thanks for the motivation to train more correctly rather than just playing and setting up shots I miss.

  13. Thanks for all that you do, Shari. My game has improved so much by using your tips and drills. I especially like the corner to corner stop shots as a warm-up… Good confidence builder for knocking in that nerve-racking last ball. That beautiful new Lucasi might help too. 😉

  14. Your videos are awesome man! Over the last 6 months they've helped improve my game enough to come second in a tournament! You've helped me so much I could never repay it! I'm forever subscribed and supportive of you. Thank you.

  16. All the pros have a proper pre shot routine too. Especially for the important shots / money balls! This is great advice

  17. I typically do the “wagon wheel” drill to warm up on my cue ball control an a few straight shots to warm up. Also commenting for the nice cue 🤤

  18. I really want this cue stick.. I'm financially not capable of buying a cue stick, but I really love playing billiards and winning this cue stick can be my break through to professional pool tournaments.
    Please select me. I'm from India.

  19. I truly do love your videos. Your tips have helped me increase my skill level in APA by 2 skill levels in less than a year!
