After having recently suffered a lower back injury during competition, I was interested to read the following article about the benefits of dynamic over static stretching:
As a coach, have you heard about this new thinking in warm-up stretches, and do you have any suggestions on how these can be applied for table tennis?
Thaks for that link. It makes interesting reading. This guy certainly has better qualifications than I have in the area. I think I will let people make their own judgement about static stretches.
I think a typical warm up of some jogging shuttles and various movement involving table tennis specific movement followed by some stretching would be most appropriate. Wheteher these are static or dynamic stretches I will need to look into further.
Thanks again. If any of our readers ahve any thoughts or insights please let us know.
