    I had to look twice to see what the coach was doing. That tethering is new to me. What is the aim of that approach, to keep from going too close to the table?

    Looks real cool, I'm going to try get one of these. I think it's to make it harder for Robert to move wide forehand? They use these types resistance drills in rugby, football and sprinting etc. But I could be wrong here...

    It's resistance training! By adding resistance to Robert's movement, he gains speed and strength. Classic resistance training. I've never seen much of it in TT though. Pretty sweet!

    I'm very familiar with resistance training. The point of this exercise is to build explosiveness, so he will get from backhand pivot to wide forehand faster. Very cool!

    Yea first time that I also see this used in table tennis. I think that's quite effective way to train resistance. Would be nice to try it :P

    Actually, I was thinking along those lines for a cheap substitute. But I didn't want to say it.

    Haha me to, I think we could possibly get one from a gym store or something, similar to what they use when training someone to sprint.

    I'm not familiar with resistance training during multiball drills, especially falkenburg.
    I agree it will help with explosiveness but I don't agree using it with certain drills and multi ball is one of them.

    With Chinese footwork, we rely on body weight and using our legs as a spring to move around. And Robert's taking off to wide FH seems like he is taking too long and require an extra step to push out. Once he pushes out, his return is very week (no power).
    The resistant is helping with one thing but not another. I would say rather using resistence training without balls.
