Hello everyone, welcome to Week 2 of the blog!
Before we begin our Table Tennis Fitness today, I just want to take the time to thank you for all the positive feedback and questions I had from Week 1. It’s really great to see you are enjoying the blog, and also that I been maybe been able to help you with your game as well!
Now to the fitness! I have a great little exercise for today, which really helps to strengthen our lower back, as well as our hamstrings and quads.
We are going to want to make sure we stretch our back for this one, so I have included a new back stretch which will make sure we are ready for today’s exercise. Try and hold the position in the picture for up to 10 seconds, and then switch to the other leg and arm to stretch the other side!
The bridge is a great exercise, and one I will do most days before beginning training in the Table Tennis hall.
For the posture, try to keep your pelvis up, so as to create a line running from your knee caps to your chest. Rest your arms at the sides of your torso to make sure you are comfortable.
Try to keep the position for 2 minutes or more, but as usual, please don’t overdo it if you find 2 minutes too tough. Instead, practice 1 minute bridges, and then when you feel comfortable, you can raise it above 1 minute.
I hope you enjoyed today’s Table Tennis Fitness, let me know your thoughts!
