Physical training for the core in table tennis

Physical training is very important in table tennis. It helps you improve the endurance and the power of your shots.


Why do we need to focus on the power of the core?

The core is very important in table tennis. That’s is the core that generates the power of your shots, not the forearm.
Having good core stability helps you to maintain correct and stable techniques during rallies.
