Welcome to the next episode of the Butterfly AMICUS Training Tips Video Series. In this series Butterfly coaching expert Richard Prause will guide you through a number of coaching videos on how you can effectively use the new Butterfly AMICUS Robots to help improve your game. Butterfly player Tiago Apolonia demonstrates each technique, whilst using the AMICUS Prime to help make the understanding of each technique easier. In this video Butterfly Coach Richard Prause gives some short tips on how to shift weight effectively. Tiago Apolonia (Portugal’s top ranked player) demonstrates how you can implement these methods, whilst using the Butterfly AMICUS Prime Robot.

Hi Everyone.  My name is Richard Prause and I’d like to share some tips with you for a productive and efficient practice for the table tennis robot AMICUS.

Today we are focusing on shifting the weight during a forehand topspin.  Shifting the body weight is important to get a good feel for movements towards the ball.  During forehand topspin, right-handed players should shift from the right to the left leg and left-handers vice versa.  We can see Tiago doing this very well even with the support of the hip and upper body.  After each shot you should return to the neutral stance with weight distributed on both legs while waiting for the next ball.
