Samson Dubina was last a guest on the show roughly 18 months ago. In that episode, we discussed his training and preparation for the Team USA Rio 2016 selections. Today, we’ll focus on TT-Flex!
Unfortunately, Samson didn’t quite make it into the Olympic team but he’s had a fantastic 2016 – both as a player and a coach. In May he managed to achieve a career high USATT rating of 2619, a level that very few US-born table tennis players ever achieve. On top of that, he has been coaching many of Ohio’s top juniors and introducing his young kids to the sport of table tennis.
The main bulk of this interview was focused around Samson new and innovative table tennis training product, TT-Flex. It’s a full-body training tool that has been designed to strengthen the primary muscles used in the sport of table tennis. Samson has been working on this for a while – and keeping it under his hat – but the product is now on sale via his website.
