Hi Luis,

What you are doing is fine.

You could start to get a little more specific with what you are doing with your weight training.  This is very much an individual thing.  You can go and see a trained instructor at you r local gym to find out more.  What you can tell them is that leg strength is important with table tennis as is agility.

You could also do some other agility exercises that are more specific to table tennis like shuttles with side stepping.  This is simulating the footwork movement in table tennis.  This will help with you footwork movements.

It is difficult to become too sepcific here but PingSkills will try to do a lesson on this in the future.
