know how to do it correctly and don’t have the confidence to do that, so they just push,
push and push. But you will never improve if you don’t change
it. Coach Zhao Yiyi will show us the best way

just need to practice it correctly. Coach Zhao Yiyi will show us the best way

ball, don’t just push it. It’s easy, you
just need to practice it correctly. Now, look at this preparation steps. It’s very important. You should lower your center
of gravity, and lead your body forward, fold your abdomen. Many players forget this
step, and they just stand up straight, so can’t add enough power to lift the underspin
ball. The second step. Keep you elbow high, and drop your racket
down lower than the table. Many of you do the wrong technique, that you
drop your elbow and your racket at the same time. No! Don’t do that. The elbow is the rotation axis, if you drop
your elbow low, how can you use the elbow to lift the ball? This is the common error of many amateur
table tennis player. Please fix your elbow, don’t move it. You can fold your back to adjust
to the ball, but keep your elbow high. The final step. Close your racket about 45 degree. Wait for the ball at it’s highest
position on the bounce. And then accelerate and brush the ball. The main force comes
from the elbow. You can also use your back to add the power
to your Backhand loop. To do that, stand up your body and rotate
the elbow at the same time, and then hit the ball. Some players can’t backhand loop because they
don’t know how to add power to the stroke. They drop the elbow too low, and then can’t
rotate to lift the ball. If you film
yourself, you will see that you don’t rotate the elbow enough, but just stand up too
straight, and you hit the ball too soon. If you loop the ball to the net, just wait
a little, and hit the ball later. If you loop the ball out of the table, that
means the ball doesn’t have enough spin, so accelerate the
ball faster. 3 tips to remember. 1) To backhand loop correctly, you need fold
your abdomen. This
action will help you to put the elbow high and forward. The elbow is the main
rotation axis to lift the ball. 2) To add the power to the stroke. You need use all of body: the back, the hip
and the leg. The muscle around the elbow is not strong
enough, so use the force from the ground to accelerate and hit the ball. 3) To lift the underspin ball, you need to
accelerate into the ball. To do that, relax your
wrist, hold your racket loosely, and suddenly rotate and lift the ball. Remember: It’s
like the way the cowboy whips off the horse. Relax and Whip!

  1. Keep the elbow high, and adjust the depth of the ball by folding your body. That is the key. I made so many mistakes by pushing the pad down with the arm and elbow, while the body is straight. So there is no axis of rotation around the elbow.

  2. Hi Admin, it is not 45 degree for the bat angle. Please have a closer look the "final" angle of the bat when it is contacted with the ball. Unless the backspin ball is higher than the one in the video. Thanks

  3. can the axis of the albow be compared to the axis in the pendulume serve? The only difference being that the backhand topspin is inverted to produce that topspin effect?

  4. Hi emratich, i cant pass many balls on the table like the chinese players. I always sliw and try to make powerful shits without waiting and enter the ball to the table. You have something to say that could help me ? Thanks anyway!

  5. Hi ERT Coach, Would you made tutorial videos about pushing (FH, BH) for the short, long, no spin, top spin, back spin balls? thanks
