Hey guys 

Thanks as always for the great show.

Before I get to practice, I usually watch a video or two to get my mind focused on TT. The video is generally on an aspect I am looking to improve on or have been struggling with. When I get to the hall, I do some stretches and running on the spot and some shadow strokes. Are there any routines including training exercises I can do when I get on the table that will allow me to get into rhythm quicker and allow me to play at my normal level sooner as I sometimes find I am only playing normally after the first 5 set game.

Hi Roneli,

Challenge yourself more with the hitting.  Do some anywhere hitting which will force you to track the ball better straight away.

Also play some practice points or games as well.  Starting the rally with a serve is a key component to a good warm up before a match.
