In table tennis, every drill should have a purpose. One distinction that needs to be made is the difference between training and warm-up. When you see professional players warming-up at tournaments, they might do some forehand, backhands, and a simple footwork drill. That might be about it at tournaments. However, their daily training routine might look drastically different. Here are a couple thoughts on this concept.
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.
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.
