More Powerful Break Shot in Pool

Did you know your arm has a limit in terms of strength? Don’t get me wrong. Accuracy is very important. You must be able to hit the head ball (the first ball you hit at the apex of triangle rack of balls) with your cue ball nicely. Once you are able to do this, then you can proceed to increasing the strength of your break stroke.

Here’s how you can increase your break stroke power.

Start slow

You will gently move the cue back and forth before you take a shot, right? When it comes to the final stroke, you push your weight forward. How do you do this? You transfer your weight from your foot to your body and then to your bridge hand. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t direct your weight to the shooting hand. You must direct the weight towards your bridge hand.

If you lose control

You must be able to control the cue ball at all times. If you lose control, you have to step back and decrease your strength. Accuracy is still priority number one. Breaking strength comes second.

More practice

When you practice more, you will see results. You will become more comfortable with this weight transfer technique to bring more power to your break stroke. The balls will be more spread around the pool table.
