Stepping Forward by Samson Dubina
In table tennis, footwork is important for all levels. Using the Newgy Robo-Pong 2050 is one of the best ways to improve footwork. Most players try to improve their side-to-side footwork, which is important. However, only a few players try to improve their in-and-out footwork.
In-and-out footwork is vitally important for the slow block, especially when you are away from the table. Watch how Joo Se Hyuk demonstrates the stepping in on this video.
Using the Newgy Robo-Pong 2050, I go to:
- Normal Mode
- Head Angle 8
- Speed 12
- L Position 10
- R Position 20
- Wait 1.40
- Oscillator ON
- Speed Random 5
This drill will give me varied depths of balls to my forehand. I focus on staying away from the table, then stepping forward for the slow ball. I suggest adding this drill to your daily training routine; you will be seeing major improvements in just a couple weeks.
