So guys just want to discuss regarding the technique to perform a smash. Yes i know pronation contributes 30% of power in a shot. But what i like to know about is the body position. So curiously i know that tennis serve and badminton power shot have similar technique. So i found a video about a guy who says lead with your hips so it has a kinda like bow figure. Here is the link below [video=youtube;HgeYmEScfgQ]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgeYmEScfgQ&feature=BFa&list=FLcWAOjVChXLA&index=2[/video] So i just want to ask fellow forum members if this is applicable for badminton? , plus should your chest area be stretched when performing a power shot or should it be relaxed? and lastly should your back be arched or relaxed when performing a power shot.
