Still working on my looping and I came across a series of videos on YouTube from yunpeng guo, and as would be imagined, I cant understand them, but he does demonstrate a lot of instruction.

In this video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8U336RKal4k&t=1068s he shows a forehand looping style that I have been working on, and it does help quite a bit.

My question, and perhaps this has been asked before, is the long backswing he takes which seems to be typical to the Chinese style. How do you manage to do this, recover, and get back in postition for a quickly returned ball when you are close to the table. Is this just a matter of moving faster? I am pretty athletic for my age (61) and tried this today, and it works, but to get back into position is a bit of a struggle. Is a shorter, or bent arm better for me, or can I make this work. Thanks for your input!

As you get better, you'll find that you have a lot more time when setting up the shot than you feel like you do now.

Partially because you are still thinking about your shot - backswing, swing, make contact, followthrough, ready, etc. When you start thinking
