      Question Service practice time?

      Hi, there's a question I've been curious about for a while: during a practice session of e.g. 2 hours, when is it more effective to practice my serves? I usually allocate about half an hour for them, but should I do it in the beginning, when I'm still not warmed up? In the middle? Or after the main session, when I'm most tired?

      I mostly practice with a robot, so I have time for serves every session

      30min is already good enough for 1 or 2 serves

      could be at the start or also at the end, serve practice is a good way to warmup IMHO.

      Any time. Practicing at the beginning gets you to have the touch for spinning more heavily. Practicing at the end would mean you are warm and have felt the touch of the ball well already so you would likely be able to generate more spin.

      Practicing serves in the middle would take the warmth you have and let you add the touch of spinning so that when you go back to regular practice you have the refined touch of spinning for serves to add to your practice. Change which one you choose consistently.
      Spin Everything.

      Thanks a lot. I will shift the timing, I really liked the idea of a warmup with some serving practice. In some video I saw a suggestion to emulate a real match for some service practice - e.g. to do some jumping jacks or rope skipping exercises to get your heart beating at 100+ rate and then practice the serves for a while.

      I always did it for a few minutes before the training, after setting up the tables in my club.
