I’ve got another great hip exercise for you today to try before your next table tennis training or fitness session! The hips are extremely important in table tennis as we use them practically in every stroke; they are also, like many other parts in the body, quite prone to injury. This is why we need to make sure we warm up our hips well!
Note: I discuss further on why pre-workout warm ups are essential in yesterday’s post (follow this link to check that out if you haven’t already done so!)
Try and perform ‘Open the Gate’ before venturing onto the next step. To do Step 2 (or ‘Close the Gate’) simply repeat Step 1 in reverse and rotate your thigh inwards towards your body. Aim to do both steps for around 15 seconds each before finishing today’s exercise!
