I see many great players having weight transferring on their leg/feet and my coach also teach this to have more force and speed to the ball, but I have a problem in this. I can only do this once and I can't get back to the position quickly. How can I adjust this?

Hi Adam,

When you have more time to play a stroke you can transfer your weight forward and backwards.  However most of table tennis is played too quickly to do that.  You need to have a lot of stability with your legs and use your upper body twist to generate speed.

The amount you can transfer your weight depends purely on the amount of time you have.

Again, I'm digging old posts here (lol).

If I have stronger core and leg muscles, do you think they will help improving my recovery after I hit with weight transfer?

Hi Erriza,

Yes that would definitely help.
