Seven Ways to Boost Your Immune System
By Heather Dubina
 
With the recent covid-19 virus and the subsequent stay at home orders across the country, you might be wanting to boost your immune system as you start to get back to your normal activities, including playing table tennis!
 
1. Get plenty of rest- resting helps your body fight off infections and helps your daily performance. Sleeping for 6-8 hours replenishes and strengthens your physical body and helps you think clearly.

Pedagogy

Read an Excerpt From the ITTF Advanced Coaching Manual

It is very difficult for the players to imagine a motor action that is only described with words.  Nothing can replace the image.  It is therefore strongly recommended to put the proposed exercises into an image either by letting the players or the coach demonstrate it or by showing a video of a high level player.
 
Questioning is an important part of the pedagogy employed because it allows to rephrase what has been said and to get a better idea of the player’s understanding of the instructions they are meant to follow.
 

Don't Make Me Mad...

Some Random Stranger, “He definitely shouldn’t have done that!!!”
Samson, “Shouldn’t have done what?”    
Some Random Stranger, “He shouldn’t have chooooooed so loudly every time he hit the net or edge with a lucky shot!!!  He made me mad!  When I’m mad, I play so determined!”
Samson:  “So what happens when you aren’t mad?”
