1. With a strong swing, there should be a braking process from free to hard
When playing table tennis, there must be a brake. After braking hard, all power of swing may come out. That is, quality cannot be obtained in process of braking from free to hard.
Usually practiced in this way, for example, if you are throwing a ball, you must suddenly grab ball with your hands from loose to tight. The feeling of staying can really hit our ball with this force.
Secondly, quality of swing must match falling ball
When we play ball again, we must pay attention to direction of flight and direction of turn to form a net force that meets and collides with each other. Only at this time can we achieve higher quality. If ball is also falling, your rhythm is also pulled down, which is a force unloading process.
Third, if you want to start playing table tennis, you have to find a good hitting point
It is very important to find a good point of impact. This is highest speed ball is hit during high point period. Of course, if you can use your strength in late stage of lift (during lift), that's called using your strength to hit ball. The quality will be higher. Of course, it's generally semi-professional. ,grab ball and hit ball. (Pull) When you grab ball, you can shoot it in middle and late stages of rise before it reaches highest point, so that quality of returned ball is higher and speed is higher.
Fourthly, strength of game mainly depends on forearm and wrist
Strength in table tennis mostly depends on forearm and wrist to apply force. The shoulder plays a supporting role in helping to extend racket and apply force. After all, when force reaches moment of ball, it mainly depends on forearm. Therefore, sudden retraction (strength) of forearm is very important, and wrist also plays a crucial role in our table tennis strength.
5. Relax your wrists while playing
Many people have great strength, but they don't have quality to hit ball. This is because wrist is too stiff, and racket is compressed like a stick, and range of motion of wrist is reduced. If wrist is relaxed, there is a fast vibration, and fast vibration will be amplified 5-10 times.
The wrist of a really high-level athlete is actually very relaxed. When handling any ball, his wrist is very relaxed. beat better. , even line changes are done by wrist, and most of them adjust to wrist, so it's very difficult to do, and it's really difficult for ordinary amateurs.
6. When playing, racket should be clamped weaker
When golfers can stabilize all movements through long practice, when forearm can show good strength, wrist can be properly relaxed, and racquet can be slightly loosened. Don't squeeze it too hard. You will find that quality will be much higher.
This concludes today's teaching. To be honest, Shifu is very unhappy with today's explanation because it's hard to express feeling of applying force. How to use smallest movement and smallest swing range to hit ball with most force.
In next issue we will talk about table tennis where balls can leak and how to fix some of problems.
