Day 2 (Week 2) – Table Tennis Fitness

Leg strength is extremely important in our sport (see Day 1), however we also need to be able to react to different shots quickly, and that requires explosive leg work.

That is why for today’s Table Tennis Fitness, we will be doing a great exercise to work on our explosive strength – Squat Jumps!

Before beginning the squat jumps though, we need to stretch! I recommend the quad stretch from Day one, as well as this new hamstring stretch.

Note: as usual, I recommend holding each stretch for 10 seconds, and then repeating on the other leg!

Now for the squat jumps!

Our goal for this exercise is to try and do 3 sets of 30 repetitions – 90 reps overall. Remember though, our focus is on our explosive power, and if you start to lose steam at 10-20 reps, that is perfectly okay – Go at your own pace and feel the burn!
