to get desired lift with your wrist shot follow through with your stick to the point where you aim your stick blade where you want it shot. if you take a wrist shot and only follow through to your ankle height you aren't going to go bar down.

as for power i guess i would suggest transferring your weight forward with the momentum of moving your puck forward. depends what you were shooting off of too dryland to on ice, there is a bit more friction with ice especially when it's wet compared to some outside surfaces. would suggest working out those forearms to for power.
