Day 5 (Week 6) – Table Tennis Fitness

Rest day is over, it’s time for another pre-workout exercise for the hamstrings!

As promised, we are going to be looking at a variation of the ‘Standing Ground Touch’ warmup we did a few days ago!

Note: if you haven’t participated in that warm-up yet, please have a look by following this link!

Fitness Goal: aim for 2 sets of 6 reps (1 rep = both feet have been touched) for today’s exercise

Tip: try to keep your legs and back straight, as this allows the primary focus of the exercise to be on our hamstrings. Also, try to keep relaxed whilst performing the stretch – you should feel ‘mild discomfort’ in your hamstrings as they are being warmed up and lengthened, but never in pain!
