I was wondering what kind of weight lifting exercises you would suggest to do, that would really help in matches and over-all table tennis play.   I know doing running and any other aerobic exercises are is a great way.  But what else?

Hi Daniel,

The main muscles that need work is the legs as this is where your power comes from.

Take a look at a previous blog.

Weight Training Specifically for Table Tennis and Strength Conditioning for Table Tennis

I think these will help you.

Can you guys give me a workout chart for working out the lower body and upper body. I workout 40mins a day and but I don't have a good plan for working out the lower body and upper body.

im told that doing barbell squats with low weight and high number of reps is very good for table tennis conditioning.

I am pretty sure it is heavy squats 9-14 reps and 3 sets is better because that would make u more explosive
