    What do guys do for a warm up prior to playing? my routine is just stretching leg muscles and twisting my torso and rotating my arms like a windmill , so i`d be interested in your ideas please,Harvey

    from a professional point of view

    mental preparation
    do some running drills, starting slowly, build speed up.
    then some functional stretching

    after that some footwork and badminton at slow pace

    that all can take more than 1hour.

    in recreational envirenments it would be good do to at least the middle. be careful with the stretching. if you do it wrong or are not used to it you can seriously hurt yourself
