    Darius Knight Multi Ball in China

    This summer England's Darius Knight (World Rank: 239) travelled to China for the China Open 2011 Pro Tour. On route to the Pro Tour Darius practised from the 10th-28th August in the Chinese National Junior 2nd Team. Below is part 1 of the video that Darius sent me. Knight is training for the London 2012 Olympics and has been doing major ad campaigns with Coco Cola and Cadbury. In a recent article by the sun (9th Dec 2011) Darius expressed how he hopes "there will be a new spin on the sport in time for the 2016 Olympics - when he believes he will be at his peak".

    I was thinking about the same question lol... but instead of abs only, I think I would like to ask about his upper body workout routine, and how much bodyweight ratio he lift to train for each body part >.>

    Weight lifting isn't necessary until you reach a certain level in your game. If you weight lift too early you will lose muscle memory of strokes and such. And if you weight lift too much you will strain your muscles, restricting them from flexibility shots. A lot of weight lifting is unnecessary in TT. Mostly leg workouts are most common. While isometrics and resistence training is best for arms, shoulders, and back. While core and chest is where you'll weight left upper body wise.

    If you want to weight lift I would suggest you work on toning rather than building muscle. You want low weight, but high repetition.

    Is the "aahh" noise on every shot helpful for some reason or just a habit he has developed?

    I think its a combination... Like choing, you just do it for no reason, but inside you feel kinda better :P
    Don't hesitate. If you want to reach your goal, just go for it!

    Amazing... but still not as fast and consistent as Ma Long ...
    Technique is at least 10 times more important than the equipment. When have you seen people giving credit to the shoes when a runner wins?

    Darius' forehand is amazing, but his backhand is not as good. Maybe he is the England's version of Ma Long
