Hey everyone. So I've been playing badminton for over a year now and have recently realised that I had an incorrect technique for clearing/ smashing, and have not been doing forearm pronation at all but rather just snapping my wrist slightly at the point of impact. In my search for the right technique, I have discovered this video on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNVC5PVJyPQ Is this the correct technique to use if I want to generate power? Also, I don't seem to understand how you manage to hit the shuttle cross court and use pronation at the same time. Surely you can hit it(if I'm right handed) to the right easily, but you cant really pronate and hit to the left as you're forearm is pronating the other way? Hope I made sense. Any help is much appreciated.
