Day 5 – Table Tennis Fitness

Rest day is over! Back to quads again for today’s Table Tennis Fitness!

As usual, I started off with a stretch to make sure I’m ready and rearing to go. Try to hold this position up to 10 seconds, then switch to the other leg and repeat!

I personally find this stretch to be very effective for today’s exercise, which is the Wall Sit. I feel that with this exercise, you want to be loose in your hamstrings as well as your quads, and I think this stretch does just that.

For the Wall Sit, I try to be 90 degrees to the wall (or in my case, a fence!), as that creates the hardest scenario for our quads, and really pushes them to the limit.

I like to do 2-3 minutes each time I do this exercise, but if you find that a little too much, try and work up to that goal slowly. Start with 1-minute sits at first and when you then find 1 minute sits easier, pop it up to 1:30 and then 2-3. Gradually build that strength up!
