MHTT Training Video Blog: Days 3 and 4

So as part of my updates for each 2 days video entries, I will also be including the schedule which I have completed for the whole day. Especially now that I am shortening the videos down and narrowing the focus to a couple of key points. I will also be including my summary of how I performed in some drills or exercises also! :)

Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel: MHTableTennis to keep up to date!

Day #3:

Training Schedule:
- 2 hours training (2 partners x 1 hour)
- 1 best of 5 practice match

I still have a lot to work on with lengthening my rallies and keeping consistent. Generally I was happier with my timing and my play close to and over the table, especially on my forehand countering. Hopefully as I train I can continue to cut down the number of unforced errors which are still frequent in my game.

Day #4:

Training Schedule: 
- 30 minute exercise bike warmup
- 30 minute leg workout (monkey jumps, squat thrusters, calf raises)
- 30 minute exercise bike (continuing)
- 1 hour training - Kaden Xu (Chinese provincial player, USATT 2700)
- 1 hour training - Judy Hugh (US National Women's Team)

Two Point Forehand:
I was relatively happy with the speed of my movement today, I'm definitely feeling lighter on my feet, I think the leg workout before it helped quite a lot. Here are some things I need to work on:

- Focus more on the contact point of the ball
- Make sure to finish the stroke before making the movement across the middle
- Keep space between my elbow and body, getting squashed up causes more top edges and mis-hits

Hope you have been enjoying the blogs so far! :)

  1. Nice, we can see the whole body this time. make sure you talk a bit louder when you move farther away.

    I like the different camera angles for your 2 point forehand. Keep it up!
