    Endurance exercises

    Sup guys,

    I would love you (my fav TT folks) would help me explore some training regimes for increasing endurance. I do train with the bot and doing falkenberg for more than a minute kills me. I am on mission to fix that. Last training session I spent firing my strongest topspins against a club wall (a person, not a brick device) and I was out of breath after 10 minutes and my muscles got somewhat permamently (until I rolled them at home) fatigued.

    I technically could reserve my "breath" and play dosile top-spins, but hey, where the heck is fun in that. Also the only way of the breaking the wall I found so far is doing the super duper anihilation combo (FH, FH, BH turbo slam spiny boy).

    7 sets of various burpee. Perfect allround cardio exercise. Adjust time and weight to suit your level.

    Well, I kinda sorta hafta do the gym in addition to TT. My hernia informs me every now and then I gots to keep dat core very strong, or else. But it's not just that, it's also plain stamina. Getting old sucks, and loss of stamina is one of the many ways in which it does so.

    I'm afraid I kind of agree with the suggestions. It's not my idea of fun, but extra fitness work away from the table has worked for me. I used to find drilling very painful and often be struggling for breath. I'm too old to say I find anything easy now but my TT training endurance has definitely improved due to attending a class (boot camp) twice a week. At the local league level I play it has helped me stay in rallies and win points.

    6 mile runs every other day definitely helps winning that last best of 5 game.

    Think you will get more endurance from tabletennis aswell. Try to make the exercises longer. Very functional for tabletennis aswell.

    Biggest gain for me for was loosing weight. Not just for table tennis but for general sporting endurance and flexibility.
    I didn't loose much but I think I can feel difference for every kg.

    Yeah, running, cycling, squats, core work, there are a few things at play here:

    1) cardio endurance (you have to work on that).
    2) leg strength
    3) core strength

    There are things that give you cross over and give all three. But different forms of exercise will help in different ways. Even in the category of running. Running multiple sprints will do something very different than running at a sustained pace for 40-80 min. A two hour bike ride on flat terrain will give you something different than a 2 hour ride on terrain with lots of climbing.

    Burpees are going to be useful as well. Jumping will do something good for leg power, jumping will also do something for core strength.

    This guy is showing basics:
    But things like that can really build strength in the core and legs. Burpees will do that too. But the more different ways you have to challenge physical strength and endurance, the stronger you will get in the long run.

    Rope skipping. Good for rhythm/timing coordination for the legs and arms.
    If you do it properly it will kill you in 5-10 minutes, it is extremely tiring if done right.

    Table tennis players should be as skillful at it as boxers.

    Do a series of multiball or robot of as many balls as you can stay down in your legs and move without losing your playing posture. Could be four balls or five, whatever you can do properly. Make a 3-4 seconds break in between each series of balls.

    Do that with various patterns like short to fh long to bh, falkenberg if you like that. Bh wide fh bh again. The most common patterns. When you can do that for an hour or more with only those few seconds breaks then your endurance will be better than it is now.

    Don't try to do 50 balls in a row. That isn't how games are. Assuming you want match endurance, not to be the best falkenberger ever.
