While they might be a very tiny bit more difficult to the back, it is not a move that I ever considered difficult. Which kind of frappés are you doing, the ones with a relaxed foot and a strike or brush on the floor, or the kind with pointed foot from sur le cou de pied?

It helps me to make sure my shoulder on the side I'm doing the frappé with stays forward. For example,

frappé with the left foot, I think of keeping my left shoulder forward.
