    Hello,

    I wanted to ask if there was any really hard training camps around.

    Like the ones where they stay their and train everyday.

    I don't mind where it is , any country will do.

    Recently one of my coaches went to a training camp , because he wanted to meet his former coach and loose weight. He went for 3 weeks and lost a wopping 6 stone!!!! I couldn't believe it!

    6 stone!? Are you sure he didn't just hibernate in a cave?

    BS, absolutely no way.

    Six stones is 38.1 kg (84 pounds), 3 weeks is 21 days. Doing the math, he would have had to lose 1.8 kg per day. I'll be generous and say it's 1 kg of fat and 0.8 kg of retained water. 1 kg of fat is approximately 7700 food calories. Subtracting 2500 food calories for basal metabolic rate, leaves 5200 food calories that needs to be burned with exercise. That's approximately 10 hours of constant, competitive badminton per day needed.

    Let's recap, I assumed that only 55% of the claimed weight loss was fat, and the rest was just water. To accomplish this feat, he would need to not eat for 3 week and play 10 hours of competitive badminton each day.

    You shouldn't believe it, it's BS.

    well i know theres some academys in denmark where players train year around but they also have it set up so you can go there and train for a month or more at a time if you want to, but it does cost alot. as for like the camp provides everything housing and all theres actually one in guangxi china this summer for a month. but im sure if you search around it wont be to hard to find theres usually lots of them and if i find anymore ill let you know about them for sure.

    I too would be interested in a badminton training camp. My range wouldn't be quite as extensive as "any country will do" though : P

    Perhaps, but the "getting there" and "accommodation" columns may counter-balance the benefits of travelling..

    hmmm true true .

    Sacrafices :-(

    But yeah - I am really keen. Just to see other countries.

    I'll be taking a gap year from school hopefully :D

    But Smashmaster if you could keep me uptodate about any camps going on i would be very gratefull.

    I heard that lots of international players train on mountians , because air is thinner , and then it makes you work harder , then you become better , because your body adapts. (not sure , but sounds good :D)

    Who knows destricto maybe ill be training with you soon :D

    I would love to do some real badminton training, but I think Denmark is about as far afield as I could go. I'm also not sure that I have the talent to warrant a month of intensive badminton, as much as I would love it .. a week or two would be great though :)
