      Cool Interesting ready position of top Chinese players

      Wow! Very interesting?

      table tennis stance of the top Chinese player


      Why do they put their free hand in the same position?
      Top Chinese players have a very similar table tennis stance.

      Waiting for your comments.

      So they can push of their leg when the need to get up strait. Also, it’s easier to balance when you are so low allowing to put your weight on the leg. I do it too.

      By staying low, it allows quick movement and strokes. Most hobby players don't bend their legs much which starts their fundamental imbalance.

      I think the main reason for this, is not to stress the legs wile mantaining balance, before activate the movement and then move to reach the ball...so, ready position, without stressing the legs = faster reaction.

      The are some players that stand to low, arms open A la Hugo Calderano, maybe during a tied match this can tire you more.

      Hugo Calderano, Masataka Morizono, and some other have this weird stance, I think it's not natural, put heavy loads on quads, and can hinder movement. Until this day I dont understand the reason why they're doing that

      I think they do that because it gives you a very good view of the serve.

      I don't understand either. I feel tired just watching his ready stance. What do he bend his knees and squatting so low for? It's not to watch the ball trajectory because he will get up and move even before the opponent contacts the ball.

      I use this position sometimes too. I find it comfortable and it does the job pretty well

      Maybe its just a preference and habit. I am quite interested in the ready position of Dima. Sometimes he does a small jump on both feet before receiving serve

      I think Lin Gaoyuan has the same ready position as well. Can't believe I never noticed this before.

      For some reason hopping right before returning a serve helps in pushing with the ball with even less movement then you wish to do aka adding power.

      This is an easy one: they put their smartphones on 'vibrate only' and what if someone texts them during a match? What if someone sends them a funny pic on whatsapp? You can't miss that, hence the hand on the pocket.

      Top Chinese players have a very similar table tennis stance.

      Waiting for your comments.

      That's odd. I always thought that you are the (only) one who "knows" the chinese "secrets" to the game. At least that is what you're basically indicating in many of your posts/clips... Or is it some sort of a trick question and you actually "know" the answer...waiting for your comment

      Squatting and the split step

      It's sort of a cultural thing. Europeans will kneel when tending to their garden. People in the tropics prefer to squat for whatever reason. They can squat all day long if necessary.
      In my teenage years, I played school cricket mostly as a wicket keeper (catcher in US baseball). To this day (>60yo), I can still bend my knees fairly low for TT matches if I feel like it. These days I am just too slow to get out of the stance, so keep the stance fairly high.

      Players move before the opponent strikes the ball in order to stop themselves being late for the ball. Basically it's a variation on the split step.

      or beat the ball to the bounce:

      Go in that stance with your hand forward and feel your lower back. Now put your hand on your leg and support yourself.

      It's actually an ancient form, passed down from generation to generation, with it's origins in Chinese martial arts. The stance not only helps your endurance, but it also channels your inner strength, making you ready for the next ball.

      Do this, and the *significant* endurance gain you receive will easily propel your ranking an equivalent of 200 USATT points, or more! Just one of the thousand-year-old Chinese secrets.

      For real.
