    I just started playing badminton after more than 8yrs n watched the recent Lin Dan, LLC and Taufik's games on U-tube. They are much more agile aggressive than the old pros like Liem Swie King, Zhao Jian Hua...etc. Partly because the games are much shorter than before (Liem Swie King vs Han Jian friendly in Singapore on 1980 lasted almost 2 hours). There were so many exchanges of serves that with the modern system it would have been over 100pts were played. Swie King was defeated by what? Han Jian's FOOTWORK mostly. HJ is barely over 5'7" and does not really have any killing shots/technique. http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...-from-Han-Jian.
    I am also a short guy (5'6") n yet could do a good net after a semi jump-smash (in singles) with 2 long strides to the net. I am not not a badminton pro, just played singles at Singapore U-18 national final in 1980.
    Sorry to digress but our boss Mr. Kwun is 1000% correct!!!

    But that was 31yrs ago! Now I can only afford to lunge to the floor to retrieve a smash low return at the net. He..he..he..
    After jump smash no more gas/petrol. HABISS or FINISHED...

    guys, i'm wondering, what do u guys exercise when u're not on the court? *i'm sorry if i'm on the wrong thread, please direct me to the right thread *

    For improving badminton speed (+stamina of course ), which one is better:
    1. Jogging with constant speed for say, like 30-35 minutes? or
    2. Sprint until u can't take it, then walk, then sprint again, then walk, for say, like 20 minutes?

    and last one, i've been doing wrist curl at the gym.. is it a good exercise to gain more power in ur smash? i know that technique is important and right now i'm trying to work hard on correcting my technique.. but should i continue on doing the wrist curl?

    thanks alot

    Thumbs up

    Do both jogging and sprinting. The sprinting is to built up your leg muscles and the jogging is to improve your stamina. The wrist curl is good but even better is playing w/ a wall using a training racket. Also, importantly, shadow badminton is very2 helpful to improve your footwork.

    Without the cover. Try to keep the shuttlecock at play as long as possible.

    Hi demolidor!
    Thx for link... Nice girls...
    Are you from USSR ? Migrated in Finland?
    2-nd question - in the movie, which begans with mr.Medvedev's speech, continued with episode when mr.Putin and mr.Medvedev plays the best game in the world (Badminton) - i want say that i watched full this movie (about an hour), where the the national coach of Russia team explain the Badminton basics. She said, that you can hit the shuttlecock with your arm, leg, head... any other part of your body when you playing. Plz answer - is it a new rule? Or forgotten an old one... Because i asked about this my expirienced senior co-member of club - he said that "it's not true - you can hit shuttle with raquet only..." May be it's new rule?
    Thx.

    Don't do wrist curls. You want to train to be powerful to move the weight of your racket quickly, not beef up your forearms. Wrist curls is the wrong type of movement for smash anyway, its more for push drive/tap kill. I find that using a light kettle bell works. Hold it and let it hang down. Then twist your wrist clockwise and counter clockwise. but stop the momentum of each twist by changing direction of rotation. This strengthens forehand and backhand. The key is to use a light weight for fast twists and fast change of direction.

    My friends would say that i could hit but my only problem is the footwork.
    And training for those footwork doesn't stop when you've already memorized all the steps but you need to continuously practice it.
