I saw in the place where you record your training sessions there is an option for weight training. I was just wondering how useful weight training is and is it good for all levels or just top players. What kind of training would it be ? Sorry if I've missed a video covering this.

Thanks !

Even if you don't target specific muscles in regards to table tennis, regularĀ full body workouts will make you less injury prone and have you feeling more fit/healthy in the long run too!

I started visiting the gym on top of my table tennis practice 2,5 months ago and while I can't say there are any direct effects to my game I still feel like it's been beneficial to my condition both when behind the table and in my everyday life!

To get benefits of your gym routine, look for strenght / power routines, not bodyboulding routines which arent that benefitial.

Look at Stronglifts routine (search in google), you do squats and will get legs a lot stronger, add plyometric training and you will get more powerful movements in your footwork.
