Thread: Breathing technique
08-12-2004, 10:44 AM #1
I was reading the article by Rudy Hartono from the new badmintoncentral.com website. One thing caught my attention was the breathing technique, it was only mentioned in the article as "Zul believes in four things: speed, good breathing, consistency and aggresivenes".
I could not find anything in General and Technique forums that talked about it, what does it really mean by good "breathing" technique to improve your performance, stamina...etc ?

i agree the way to control breathing does help to reduce drainage of stamina
its like chinese kung fu
require breathing to be long and steady

my take on breathing.... dont have too much fun laughing even just a bit in the middle or end of a hard rally really takes a lot out of you. I can help but laugh a few times in a game when I'm playing with my regular group...

I sometimes talk to my partner during rallies.....so it's kind of hard to notice the breathing timings.
But I will pay attention to it tomorrow and see if I can come up with something.

it seems like, when it gets really really hot in the gym breathin can be difficult especially after long rallys , i think breathin aids you in your game notjust staminina wise, but also in thinkin correctly. Proper breathin allows circulation of blood to flow more in your body , thus more oxygen , thus more energy. More energy = clearer mind and allows to u concentrate better.

The only control I have is to try and delay the next rally as to get my breath back.
Anybody else got more constructive advice?

It might have meant whether you should be breathing in or out when playing a shot.
There are many sports where it is an advantage to be breathing out while you perform the critical action. The reasoning is that your muscles are more relaxed when breathing out than when breathing in. Holding the breath involves tensing muscles.
Definately applicable to archery and shooting, where a long shallow exhalation is used to reduce body movement.
Martial arts tend to have a more forceful exhalation.
Tennis players have the grunts and groans.
So for badminton, maybe it is best to have a forceful exhalation for power shots, and a slow exhalation for delicate shots.

In sailing (more of a slow endurance sport) to sing whilst you are sailing along, as it means you breath properly. some people tend to hold their breath, then take quick out and in breaths. More suited to a sport where people cant hear you though. I cant imagine singing "new york newyork" whilst playing a tough game of badminton.
I do tend to sing when I run as well though. I find it helps.
I am intrested as to whether anyone has any practical advice. I dont think about it at all. After the rally I do make sure I breath slowly though. In through the nose, out through the mouth, making sure your lungs are fully filled and fully emptied. I woulnt know if this is correct though.

My coach told me to take a quick deep breath before hitting the shuttle hard ( especially when doing clears or smashes), and release it while hitting the shuttle.
for other shots, just follow your foot rhythm.
Hope this helps...

In weight lifting its inhale on the down stroke and exhale on the power stroke. When you are smashing you are doing a very quick inhale when setting up for the smash and a quick exhale when you release your power.

When breaking bricks and all, we usually yell and exhale a lot of air before striking our target...but we do it differently. We use our abs, not our lungs or thoats. I dunno really how i do it...it's just natural.
I use it in doing smashes in badminton too!

I tried to control my breath yesterday during club time
Deep quick exhale during smash or clear
Really helps giving 100% power
As odjn Said
Using ur ab to breath is more efficitve for breathing
Its like when i was learning kung fu
my master told my to use my ab to breath

Do you really mean abs, or the diaphragm?
Did the instructor actual say the abdominal muscles, or just point to that area of the body?
08-16-2004, 06:11 PM #17
Breathing with abs or diaphragm, ...that could be hard to do isn't ? I only know how to breath with my lung during the game. I was told to breath with diaphragm during singing...of course my singing is bad.
Can someone describe in details how to do it ?
