The backhand is one of the most challenging shot and every players want to create more pace with it. The problem is that most recreational players over use their arms.

To create more power you should start using your lower body and in particular your left hip (right if you are left handed). Turn your left hip back when taking your racket back, set yourself (load phase) and then accelerate your hip foward: it will help your backhand generate more speed and more spin.

So from now on remember to LOAD & TURN YOUR HIPS.
