Muscles, and swings...
Hey, __Lam here... this might be a stupid question but i'm wondering which type of swing/stroke invlolves the use of your bicep other then underhand... i've been workin out my bicep alot but it seems kinda useless if its just used for underhand. can anyone name some other swings used in badminton other then underhand?

You should strengthen your forearm and wrist.

underarm? like when you serve underarm or do you mean forearm?
Fore arm and bicep muscle, I would think a jump smash.
Badminton use almost every single muscle in your body. Especially for lundges if you have bad footwork.

Well here's a good exercise to imrpove your risk muscle. (I learned it threw my Physiology, Human Atnomy and Weight Trainer teacher, all 3 subjects with one teacher lol)
There is a muscle that you use the most to move your risk muscle which is located on your antebrucial bone, next to the antecubical bones (Where your wrist down to your elbow is). Try moving avideo joystick with your risk, you will noticed it moving when you retract your muscle.
Your goal is to gain better arm strenght for badminton? Building this muscle will help both your backhand and forehand play. Stuff you need: somewhere to sit, dedication, and hand weights (start with 8 or 10's lbs, then move to 15-20 lbs). You just need one set. Sit down and strech your hand muscle first. There is about 3 type of exercise you will be doing to improve your forearm muscle. So sit down and make sure you strech (pulling a muscle can prvent you playing in a badminton game for a while if you don't streech and even just doing simple work such as writing with a pen).
The first exercise is laying your hand on your lap facing up. You will have your hand grabbing the hand weight. Do not move the arm. Leave it laying on the lap. Then move your risk up and down. Do a few steps. Here is a part not alot of people do; switching to the left/right/other hand. Your arms are connected by one nerve across your shoulder connecting both hands. If one hand is stronger than the other, the progress in gaining more strength will be slowed down. When both hands are at the same level, you will get stronger better and safer. So basically start working on the other hand (I believe competive sport players work out their left hand if their right hand is in pain to help heal it faster, human body is so werid). This is the basic ones.
The next exercise takes alot more effort. I do this one more because it's usually weaker. Sit down, have your arm laying on your lap again, but this time with your open hand aiming to the floor. Place your weight into your hands and start moving your risk up and down. Switch as well. To most people, it's more difficult to do this than the first exercise. (I was able to max out 30 lbs on the first exercise, but on this one, I manage barely 20 lbs).
The last one is kinda hard to explain and kinda childish to most people because the movements (ROFL) so it's betyter to keep it quiet Just remember this, don't try carrying a weight and pretend it's a racquet and train your arm that way. That's the most stupid way of training your arm muscle because it's not training one muscle, it's dangerous because it can easily break a bone or even pull a muscle, and if you accidently let go, something is going to break

FOREARM STRENGTH DEVELOPMENT
- Try out MarkA's suggestions: http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ad.php?t=20149
- I use a combination of forearm training methods ranging from theraband bars to gym Gripper: http://us.commercial.lifefitness.com...nt.cfm/gripper
- Use a squash racquet or badminton training racquet

is it okay to do slow drives with a tennis racquet? i tried it once and it semed like my defense speed went up a lot. I don't do it much though cause i think it may develop an injury. Is there much hazard with doing drives with a tennis racuqet?
