Imagine that you have caught the ball out in front of you. You would then absorb the momentum of the ball by bringing in the ball to your chest, bending the knees. This also helps to protect the ball from defenders and gives you a stable platform.
Bringing the ball up your chest in an upward arc, release the ball out level with your chest, arm outstretched.
Step forwards with one foot.
As the weight transfers forward make a chest pass by extending your arms at chest height and bounce the ball in between you and the player to whom you are passing.
Step with your left foot and pass off the left hip against a wall 3 m away. Make the pass return so you can catch without having to move. Then step backwards and into position to repeat the exercise.
Start with legs shoulder width apart. Step forwards. As the weight is transferred forwards make a chest pass, pushing the ball out from the chest and releasing the ball when your arms are fully outstretched. The transfer of weight gives extra power.
