Lately, I have been noticing a big issue regarding the free arm when playing table tennis.
I myself enjoy and play the sport competitively for fitness and for fun. The problem is that I'm not sure if table tennis gives me any physical stimulation for my free arm at all since the dominant arm is obviously being stimulated.
Unfortunately, many people have given me this argument about the physical benefits of table tennis and it makes me sad that the sport is undermined because of all these beliefs.
Hopefully, as a National coach, you can explain to me if this is right or not through past experience :)
The free arm does get less exercise than your dominant arm. However, the better players will make sure that they do gym work to stimulate the free arm as well to ensure they have a balanced physique.
We all know how great this sport is... If others don't quite get it, I feel sorry for them.
