3:1 Principle
 
Inconsistency is likely the main reason for your poor performance in tournaments.  Will doing more drills help you?  Possibly.
 
Here at the Samson Dubina Table Tennis Academy, we aren’t just concerned with the number of hours, we are also concerned about the quality of the hours realizing that each individual player might need to adjust his/her drills slightly.  In this article, I’m going to briefly outline the 3:1 principle that we have developed.

If only 25% of the match time is spend playing points, then why do we spend 99.9% of our effort on that portion of the game and we spend about 0.1% of our effort on the dead time???
