    this is my training schedule:

    20 lifts of 5kg dumbell
    30push-ups
    30sit-ups
    ~>3sets of eac in the morning and in the night
    10rounds around the stadium on every sunday morning

    any suggestions on how i can improve my training?
    currently do not have any badminton training as this year is my graduating year. Any alternatives for leg training other than skipping? i have a speed rope however my house doesn't have the space and my house corridor is cramp. Skipping when your neighbours walk pass is also =.=

    appreciate ur suggestions. :D

    Frog jumps? Squats? Lunges with dumbells?

    10 rounds around a track a week is not enough in my opinion.

    30 pushups and situps isnt going to do much. You should do them till exhaustion if you're aiming to build muscle, and tighten up those areas.

    depends on the track:cool: in all honesty, 10 laps could be fine, or could be a waste of time. depends how tired you feel after the workout. if you're base fitness level is not good, do long distant jogging. however, if your basic fitness level is fine, focus on badminton related stuff, like sprinting 1 lap, jog 1, sprint 1. trust me, after that, 10 laps feels fine:p

    skipping is also fine. if you feel skipping is not hard enough, do double skips.

    yea do like 50-60 pushups

    and try to increase them per week if you want to get stronger and more buff/toned

    however, badmintonwise... technique should be first priority which includes footwork too

    i mean wouldnt you rather learn to hit the birdie with very little effort =]. because ive seen skinny people who can smash harder steeper and faster than some that are larger (muscular wise).

    but if you want to get stronger, you should increase the reps and minutes you job every week.

    your training is too light. increase the intensity by 3 times and probably you can see the difference
