I havent contacted you for a while.
I was able to catch an eye of powerful coach,who now occassionally spars with me.
I was tired from the training more than from any previous table tennis.
Thus I started thinking,how can I find out if my movements are economical etc?
So that I spend minimal energy?
I think one way is to do the swing without the ball and feel what that is like. You can even close your eyes and try to tune into the feelings in all parts of your body. Start with the bigger muscles like your legs and waist. Then start to think about how the muscles of the shoulder, upper arm, forearm, then wrist and fingers feel while swinging. As you swing with the ball think about how you can make the same swing with less effort in each of these parts.
Then swing with the ball and see where the differences lie. Again go through the same process and see if you can see how little effort you can take with each of those muscle areas without changing the stroke.
This will take some time going backwards and forwards through the process to get the feeling to stay while hitting the ball.
