80 MPH Forehand

Learn to put yourself in a difficult situation

Most of your practice time in table tennis should consist of doing game-situation drills. Game-like drills consist of a serve, return, and rally. HOWEVER, there are times during practice that you should put yourself in a bad situation to push yourself to the limit, to push yourself HARDER than you actually would go in a match.

Push the Limits!

Read the article and watch the VIDEO!

When doing drills with a training partner, choose drills that are game-like as well as drills that push your limits. If you are doing a basic backhand to backhand rally for one hour per day and averaging 50-100 balls each rally, then you probably aren’t pushing the limits.
