PHYSIOLOGICAL DEMANDS IN TABLE TENNIS
The purpose of this review was to support table tennis experts and scientists with up to date science research regarding physiological measurement of table tennis players. We have noticed that some authors use obsolete references when comparing data in their research.
Literature available all over the world has been consulted to unify the findings involving measurement of physiological characteristics among table tennis players. In the past ten years, we have encountered a lack of quantitative data regarding the evaluation of training intensity and physiological load capacity of table tennis players in training and competition. From this point of view the judgement on the quantity of sports load depended only on one's observation and experience, a situation which, unfortunately, lacked a scientific basis. In order to scientifically improve the training of table tennis players and support table tennis researchers with newer findings, it is necessary to put forward objective evaluation indices for the training intensity and physiological loads of table tennis players and to support scientists with the results of extant research.
