      Training with music

      Hello ttd members.
      Have anyone here ever tried training in the hall with some background music? Kind of what is done in the gym for some increased motivation.

      Just wondering what is your perspective on this topic as I know some people do not recommend it. Something about having no music in a match makes it useless to get use to music while performing your shots.

      Thnks for the comments!
      May it be a great discussion

      I don't recommend you listen reggaeton, may be some repetitive tempo, like the Mortal Kombat theme

      We often do that and a lot of other teams also do that during the warmup hour before a match. Not because of any kind of a training effect. But because it is fun and nice, creates a good atmosphere.

      Btw what is with that g4a advertisment?

      Very interesting question!

      One concern I see is that audio cues are very important for many aspects of the game: from reading the opponent's shots and to evaluating your own shots, to monitoring different features of rallies.

      That said, hearing other people playing may also be detrimental to the quality of the audio cues we get about our own play. Not to mention, a fun atmosphere can also help getting our minds off non-TT stress - which can probably be a lot worse for our game than a little music..

      Looking forwards to reading other people's thoughts. Thanks for this thread!

      Legend has it that Dick Miles and Marty Reisman used to practice thusly, with Miles listening to the Juilliard String Quartet playing Beethoven's String Quartet No. 8 in C major while savagely chopping and Reisman belting out Old Man River in his distinctive Manhattan bass while blasting forehands at Miles.

      Today there are a number of different musical options you can choose, depending on which style you choose among a galaxy of options available to today's ponger thanks to the availability of a universe of pong equipment.

      If you're an all-out ren hai jan shi (human wave attack) take no prisoners get it over with type, I'd recommend Stravinsky's Rite of Spring as your musical background as you train.

      If you prefer elegance, style, wit, panache, sophistication, and aesthetitude as a signature of your game, you can't go wrong training to Handel's Water Music.

      If you are a thoughtful player who has read Sartre, Camus, Donn Olsen, Matthew Syed's Bounce, and the collected works of Larry Hodges, why then Bach's Art of the Fugue should be just right for you.

      If you're heavily into Zen, intimate with Lao Zi's Dao De Jing and can sorta understand what its first five words mean, book yourself a plane trip to Tibet and record Tibetan monks. The music is quite striking, unlike anything you've probably ever heard. Deep basses, and a whistling sound above their sonorous drone.

      For practicing counterdriving, The Ping Pong Song'll work. Catchy bass line.

      For defense, the score from the movie The Great Escape.

      I would not recommend playing table tennis on bicycles in traffic to any of the compositions I mentioned in a previous post. You'd have to have a good sense of tempo, phrasing, rhythm, athleticism, and excellent peripheral vision.

      But if you wish to learn how to play table tennis musically, which I as a musician consider to be an excellent idea considering that today's pro table tennis is almost exclusively prestissimo con molto pesante (heavy-handed), training while listening to aesthetically pleasing music is a must if you want to acquire some mastery of all the subtle nuances inherent in the sport in order to make a point blossom.












      P.S.: Baal may have spoken, but Baal has yet to reply to me.

      I don't think this is a yes or no question.
      I think it really depends what one is working on.

      For warming up like sidesteps, running and such but also for repetitive footwork drills music can be quite helpful.
      It can help to learn 'how to dance towards the ball'.

      Then there are drills like serve and receive drills where music is rather distracting and hindering.

      btw,

      My (used to be) 2 yo Daughter love it when I bat juggle the table tennis ball to the wall while singing "Naik Kereta Api" (Ride The Train) to train my touch. Try to juggle the ball the whole song.

      We do it occasionally when playing games, everybody likes it, tries to guess the name of the random songs. Doesn't detract from the competition, actually more enjoyable, as players dance some between points.

      How would you determine if you are sufficiently brushing at ball contact if you can't hear the double thlick ??? :-D

      Music with in-ear airpod style Bluetooth wireless sounds okay but I wouldn't want noise when training :-P

      I often have trainings with music, thats mostly something like soundtracks fro the last movie. Ieven tried the classic, but it is too relaxing and fits for study when you have to focus on something like wriitng or calculations.
