Tennis Power and Biomechanics

What do the baby in this picture and the tennis player in this video have in common? They are both using their glutes (hips/core) during their movement. Most people I see do not use their glutes well. They force too much movement at the spine instead. This wastes power, causes premature fatigue and sets people up for over-use injuries and poor movement habits throughout the rest of the body (kinetic chain).
Thanks for reading and remember to use your Glutes!
