Hi Alois

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?

Cheers

Hi Ji-Soo,

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.
