    Great to read about your training. I was wondering, when you work out in the gym is there a coach with you telling you what to do? Forgive me if you mentioned it in the diary already.

    Joanne,

    I have no coach with me whilst i am in the gym. I talk to my coach during training days (eg saturdays) who tells me what i need to do (eg upper body work). Whilst being in the gym, i can draw a training programme of my own to keep to, however, the training will be more intense, especially endurance work, nearer the season.

    Hope this answers your question,
    Matt

    When you make it to the big time (i.e. 10 for an open semi) I want 10 %!

    Matt - Best wishes in your endeavours.

    Do you do a bleep test every 4mths to see how your VO2 max has improved ? If so what is your current level ?

    Do you do any aerobic exercise - long runs etc.

    Do you do plyometric exercises to compliment the weights ?

    Cheers,
    Sean

    Sean,

    I plan to see how far i can cycle etc in 30 minutes to see if my VO2 max has improved. No doubt it has because when i do interval training now, i feel great.

    As for long/runs cycles yes, i still do then now and then...however, with the season coming up it's important to do interval training. This is because it's not important how fast you can cycle 6 miles, it's how many quick periods you can do within these 6 minutes, as badminton is clearly an interval sport.

    Plyometrics i will be doing soon. I do things like shadow, fast feet and jumping to improve this.

    Hope this helps
    Matt

    I've seen your log and 've a suggestion to make.

    You say your backhand is no good. Y don't you try lateral lying raise. Improves backhand. Use yahoo to search.

    Gd luck.

    ljq,

    What i meant was my backhand wasn't good at the time because i had triep trouble, and it hurt when i extended my arm. Now i've recovered, backhand are fine, backhand clearing is no trouble at all due to the upper body work i have been doing. Backhand smash is also getting harder. Sorry for any confusion.

    Matt

    I'm surprised you aren't doing skipping. I dont know much about the technical stuff but in Indo... skipping is a must for all people. Tripple layers, quadrupple layers etc

    Hi Matt,

    I would be interested in seeing how your training affects your weight and body fat percentage. Does your gym have facilities for measuring body fat?

    Once a week for weight and once a month for body fat should be enough.

    cheers.
    Neil
