Whip Forehand Topspin Table Tennis – Like a Boss!

Whip Forehand Topspin Table Tennis – Like a Boss!

welcome to part 62 of the learning table-tennis series past 62 is a continuation of part 59 where I introduced the whip forehand which looks something like this let's start by examining how a rattle drum works before learning how to play a powerful whip forehand [Applause] I think that the handle with the players body the string is the players arm and the bead is the racket if I turn the handle back and forth quickly with correct timing then the momentum allows the bead to swing around at high speed on both the backswing and the stroke notice how the string straightens as a result of the force it works optimally if you reverse the momentum around the time the beach strikes the drum this causes a whip type motion as the bead is always playing catch up with the handle the bead also has to travel a lot further than the handle which means that you must have greater speed if I pause between the backswing and strokes the bead rusev speed and the instrument stops working now let's watch then hit a very powerful forehand against an easy ball when you slow this shot down you'll see the similarities between a powerful forehand topspin and the rattle drum mechanics in turn these down at the back about the same time as the ball was bouncing on his own side of the table as the racket is nearing the end of the backswing he quickly turns his trunk forward and now the arm and the racket are playing catch-up the arm is very straight so like the beat on the drum bench record has a long way to travel compared to his body he on this racket head speed is created and that's why he's able to hit the ball so hard he's been side by side with the rattle drum notice the similarities if you want to learn this technique is the exit they'll recommend with the straight arm turn quickly and let your arm go back as far as it possibly can when your arm is about to hit the back turn your trunk forward and let your arm come through at high speed you'll know if you are doing it right as your blood will quickly rush to your hand after 10 swings your hand should feel very heavy and it may even be painful now they're the same with your racket hey so common mistake you don't want to make with your forehand topspin as the ball is approaching many players will carefully place the rector behind them without core momentum it's also known as the ball is passing over the net once you're here you're out of options you'll be forced potential Peck and biceps to bring the racket forward there'll be no record head speed and certainly no whip because we'll tell you to relax but he's misreading the problem all you can see is the major muscle contraction due to poor technique relaxation is actually the result of great technique and it's never the other way around telling someone to relax can't possibly help so once you're able to do this exercise take it to the table get someone to feed you easy balls at first and gradually increase the difficulty adjust the links of the backswing according to the speed of the oncoming ball continue training until you have a full hand light male long or fine gentle if you've enjoyed this video you can go to tth calm to view the rest of this series as well as over 150 instructional videos by world class player William Henzell you'll also find Brett clash tutorial on tth calm that will teach you how to serve like a boss

  1. Like most European plays all have bent elbows hitting forehand shots, don’t know why. Actually The movement of upper arm swing ( with elbow fully extents then bend )can reduce the reaction time, which makes better quality forehand shots.

  2. I have watched your previous forehand topspin videos, in which you emphasize isolation of upper arm, and movement of lower arm and wrist. In this video, the arm is straight. Which is better option, to bend your arm on contact, or keep it straighten

  3. Hi Brett, this works great for a big swing, but how about a smaller, close to the table swing. Does this work with these types of shots? Thanks.

  4. Brett, does the arm and racket lag behind in the backswing, as well? So, on the backswing, does the body start turning first followed by the arm? Thank you!

  5. Hi Brett, when i do this it feels as though the body is turning through first and then the arm comes after. Does this sound right? Thanks.

  6. how come your friends contact point is way behind the body and ma longs for example in par with the body or even in front? What are the benefits of both, or is it personal preference. btw, I have a small tournament in 2 weeks & nice video 🙂

  7. Why most of Europeans employ arm bent style with tensor rubbers ?. Is such chinese style energyconsuming technique caused by hard chinese rubber ( more open racket angle on the contact) ? What type of rubber would you reccomend for FH for such technique? Many thanks for nice tutorial!

  8. This is the kind of forehand topspin loop that I've been looking for!!  Thank you, Mr. Clarke, for your timely and informative video!!!

  9. Powerful shots but not a big fan of that technique personally. Do you have tutorials of the Timo Boll and Michael Maze bent arm style of looping on your site? Best Regards.
