How do professional players concile weight training, specifically for the legs, with frequent on-table training.

Assuming a schedule of daily on-table training, is legs training with weights needed/productive, or not?

Which stategy is generally used, given of course that each body reacts differently to training?

Hi Saverio,

Weight training for the legs is crucial at the higher level.  It is best to do about 3 weight sessions a week.  This could be focused during the off season.

Take a look at the Blogs on Weight Training for Table Tennis or Strength and Condiitoning for Table Tennis.

You need to develop strength through weight training which will then increase your ability to move faster and more efficiently.
