    Hey There..
    Few months ago when Li Mao (Malaysian MS Coach) just took over the malaysian MS, i read the newspaper that LI Mao concluded that Malaysian players are not fast enough compare to the other country players like china etc.. In world championship 2005, i notice that the malaysian players are getting faster especially LCW.
    I was just wondering what kind of training that Li Mao give to his players to improve their speed. If you guys know any of other national team trainings, you can also share here.. I am interested to know.. thanks..:D

    I'm no expert, but I think they do proper Plyometrics training. :D

    There are several threads here by Ruth1 of Badminton Central about the daily training of the Chinese badminton team. Here's one of the threads: Typical Friday and Saturday at IBF WTC Guangzhou

    The pros train with weighted vests, so it should be fine. It's the ankle weights that will do long term damage to the joints as they alter the way you move.

    Ahhhh, very smart. That's similar to running with a parachute behind you. The raincoat will slow you down. In addition, you heat up very quickly so it has fat burning benefits as well. Very interesting! :)

    No way, they will ask what you are doing and you say training and they will want to do it too. :D Try and see what happens. :p

    Sorry cappy but you're dead wrong. The weight vest *will* put more stress on *both* knees and ankles.

    The pros make this "sacrifice" to gain strenght and speed.

    Weight vests should ideally only be used in water, since then it shouldn't be any landing=compression stress on the joints.

    But if you use it in water the benefit of it would diminish. Alternatively, it can be used on sand. Also, you can first build up more muscles to reduce the overall effect of the stress on your knees and ankles.

    Wirre,

    Those vests don't stress the pros as much comparing to amateurs because they already have the fundamentals ingrained in them. When they move the proper way, there's less stress on the joints as it doesn't change the way they move, they just got heavier momentarily. Damage to the joints happens due to the change in gait, not because of the person's weight. Ankle weights, on the other hand, do change the gait.

    So really the weighted vest do strengthen their muscles. It really isn't that much of a 'sacrifice' when we're talking about professionals using them. Now for amateurs who started late or are very young, they probably do better to work on their footworks and lower leg muscles. But I won't rule out adopting the vest as training tool. Also some of those vests could be altered for progressive resistance training.
