Hi Alois,

I'm planning to attend a training camp. It lasts for five days and is very intense: 2-3 hours of practice before lunch, and the same amount after. However, I'm afraid that such an intense training will put in me in the deepest overtraining pit in my life. I train 3-4 times a week for 2-2.5 hours and sometimes I do get into overtraining zone (I absolutely hate it). I have about two months ahead of me, so what can I do best to prepare myself for it? Train as usual, or, maybe, play less and add a few jogging/swimming sessions per week to improve my stamina?

Hi Ilia,

I think you should just train as usual.  You can add a physical training as well to help you with your stamina as well.

Thanks for your tips about recovery at the camp. Recently for me it was quite surprising how easy it is to accumulate under-recovery in table tennis training and end up overtrained.
