In other sports, I've benefited from cross training (such as adding some swimming while training for track and field).  Are there non-table tennis activities you recommend as part of a table tennis training program?  Thanks, Jake

Hi Jake,

Running, swimming, weight training, even Tennis and other racket sports can be beneficial for Table Tennis.

I think different ways of maintaining fitness are a good way to break up training monotony.

Thanks Alois!  I lift weights two or three times a week and I think it helps my table tennis.  -Jake
