Hi Alois and Jeff,

What kind of warming up should I do before practicing on the table. I usually warm up with stretching my arms and legs, then I warm up with forehand and backhand counter hit. What do you recommend for warming up(s)?

Thanks a lot!
Regards, Archel

Hi Archel,

The current thinking is that you should do moving warm ups rather than static stretches.  So some running around first followed by some moving of the arms and legs will be best.

Then you can spend time on the table warming up your forehand and backhand.

We have a lot of information on this area in our Training Secrets lessons including a comprehensive guide to warm ups.
