Welcome to the next episode of the Butterfly AMICUS Training Tips Video Series.

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 use the random mode with the Amicus robot. 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.

In this exercise we can see the importance of using small steps moving forwards and backwards.  You should keep the racket above the table especially for the half-long ball.  You should hit on the highest point of the bounce and to accelerate towards the ball.  Every forehand topspin should be played moving forwards.  When accelerating try to avoid a long back swing but still use your upper body and legs for additional power.  Try to flex your stomach muscles at contact to keep your whole body under tension.
