    Greetings! My name is Dennis i come from a village called Veberöd in Southern Sweden i have many issues that i want to have solved in my gaming in Badminton. I have played now in 6 years and 3 of those was very unserious. I have been also known as the lazy boy in my club. Well i can admit i'm very tired in the mornings. And the first issue of my gaming is that i have a "crook" arm, and what i mean with that is i cant really get my whole arm up in the air when i play. Mainly for people this is not big issue but for me it is. I have played with it in 6 years in it's like a bad patch in my gaming now. i can't really play properly with that issue and i have tried everything but everytime i fall back to my old classic crook arm. And my trainer says when i play i have a great technique but in the wrong state of the arm. He says i have to get my arm in the air to be bigger in badminton and i know i have tried and we have really tried to worked on it and as i said " you cant learn old dogs to sit" (swedish phrase). But i really want to be big in badminton one day and i really want to get away from the crook arm and have a straight and nice arm when i play! I hope i get good replies from this thread and i really hope you can help me. Greets from // Denka

    There are badminton players who suffer from a bent arm due to over-training. If your crook arm has a bend at the elbow and it cannot reach your spine at the back as far as the other good arm, you could be suffering from golfarm. I too suffer from a golfarm and my arm starts to get more bent at the elbow if I play too much. If you have the condition then straighten your arm again by doing some simple arm stretching exercise. You can find this at www.airbed.ch/tennis arm. The section on golfarm follows the one on tennisarm.

    Taneepak.. i have tried this trainings but i dont really know if it's really my issue now when i tried the "Diagnoses" on the site i tried it and i didnt feel any pain. I think when i play it's my arm that's suffer not my elbow. And my coach said to me that i use the muscle because i use the muscle below the biceps... you know the muscle you use when i write like now... pretty hard to explain in words but i hope you understand.
