I noticed that when my non dominant foot is in front of the dominant foot,i tend to move better and overall play better shots. So should the non dominant foot always be in front of the dominant foot?

Hi Jasper,

You can have you left foot slightly in front for both Forehand and Backhand.  I like to have the legs quite square to the table so that you can utilise both sides equally well.

But I noticed that it's hard to generate spin and power with my forehand when I stand square. That's why I stand more side on to get more spin and power.

Yes that is true. You can use the rotation of your waist for more power.
