1. Recovery rate can be faster than ball speed
Most of time it's because hands are too fast, not because rhythm can't keep up. The recovery rate in humans is faster than ball, and rhythm is always faster than ball.
Many people think that reason ball is late is because your attention is focused on your hands, and it is your hands that accelerate pace.
If you don't use your legs but only your arms, speed of ball depends on how fast our arms are, but if your arms are fast and mine are slow, I have time to move my legs and use my arms to control rhythm of ball . Use your legs to fully control position of ball so you have enough time to recover.
Second, active rhythm control method
(1) Improve ball return quality
1. Increase your rotation
Slow down rhythm so you don't get killed by returning ball, increase quality of your backhand, focus on spin to increase spin, actively control rhythm of ball, and don't let your opponent be fast.
Many people can't recover from hitting ball because their hands are frantically accelerating and rhythm of ball is accelerating so they can't recover.
When soles of feet move first and rhythm straightens out, there will be no delay. If the delay occurs again, it is indeed an ability problem.
Many people struggle to move their arms faster so that their legs get slower and slower and their arms get faster and faster.
2. Eat ball carefully
In backhand practice, it's more important to eat each cricket tightly, rather than regardless of whether speed is high or not.
(2) Slow down your hand rhythm
If rhythm of arms is fast while playing, move your arms as you move your legs. If you move your legs frantically, you can keep up with your arms. Coordination of hands and feet.
(3) Footwork must be reasonable
What is more important in playing table tennis is that pace of soles of your feet must be reasonable, which is more important than your fast running. Many balls are not very fast, but you hit ball quickly with your hands and the soles of your feet can't keep up with you.
(4) Arms and legs must be coordinated
The body must be coordinated when playing ball. The arms can share load on legs, and legs can help arms share load. These two support each other.
If arms and legs don't support each other, it will make people feel that table tennis speed is too fast to keep up. If you understand it this way, your cognitive abilities are not enough.
If your arms are desperately fast and your heels don't keep up with your game, rhythm will eventually break, so you must control rhythm of your feet during practice. .
