Day 5 (Week 3) – Table Tennis Fitness

It’s the last day of Week 3’s Table Tennis Fitness so let’s give it everything we’ve got!

For today’s exercise, we will be working on our forwards and backwards agility that is so important for table tennis footwork; this is because we have to step “in to” the table to reach short balls, and step out again to hit longer ones that bounce nearer the white line

Before we begin, always remember to stretch before you start to exercise! Feel free to pick any of the stretches from Week 1 or Week 2!

The goal for today’s exercise is to try and do 5 reps of 2-3 sets, with today’s focus not purely on pace; we are looking to build stamina and endurance for our leg muscles as well as our breathing.
