    skipping is very very good for badminton...


    first...

    it strengthens your calf...

    second.. your wrist...

    and third...


    it'll help in your coordination between foot and hand...... thus.... your timing in badminton will be more accurate... lesser miss hit.... and.. better shots..

    Default Swimming NOT good for badminton

    I knew a guy who is in the state team, but before that he was a top swimmer as well, however when it got serious and he had to make a choice, the coach advised him not to do laps anymore because swimming is slowing down the muscles and making the muscles for badminton slower.

    Best idea is skipping, running, and playing badminton!!

    i'm surprised NOT ONE PERSON has mentioned footwork drills....

    work on your footwork at a moderate pace ... as you become more and more sure of your steps go faster... this will make u way more tired than running

    just be sure u dont go to fast and use sloppy footwork...but u wont have to go that fast anyway because its very tiring

    LOL, I can second that .
    However, I also found that if you do some footwork drills SLOWLY at first with Angkle Weights, it really helps your stamina and speed. I enjoy wearing them as they help you height for a jump smash which is somewhat important as well.

    Default Footwork drills

    Yeah, my only problems with doing footwork drills are:

    1. Feels boring
    2. Feels silly if you are not high standard player
    3. Lack of court availability

    1. It's only boring if you do the same things over and over. There should be some variation in the footwork drills and should be timed.
    2. How does footwork make you feel silly?
    3. You don't really need a court to practice footwork.

    Default The answer is Cross-training

    Cross-training is the best. You can exercise all major muscle + heart without overusing one certain type of muscles + will not get bored.

I used to skip but then someone at my club told me not to do it often and he advised me to do interval running and he also advised me to run up the stairs, 2 to 3 steps at a time which I do regularly nowadays...but I don't like running coz i don't have that much time...

    So are skipping and running up the stairs a good alternatives for running?

    okay.. letz make some sense here.. to increase stamina, itz obvious that running and swimming are the best, but u have to remember that u're doing all this to improve ur badminton skills. so if ur gonna only increase ur stamina, yes thatz gonna help u move around longer, but u still wont be very good at the game. if u wanna work on stamina and get good at the game at the same time, u might as well do drills relating to badminton. i think footwork, jump roping, and short skips or sprints would help, but i would personally be doing footwork all day and increasing my stamina at the same time

    Furthermore, running is considered "best" because typically "fitness" is measured using some sort of running test. This causes people to train for the test, and not for badminton itself.
