    Default Not only wrist and arm?

    I saw on another forum , that your fingers might be important in smashing?

    Does anyone know if this is correct? If so , do you know any finger strengthening drills?

    Yes the grip is important , but what about finger strength.

    How long should a person train with a squash racket for, and should they merely shadow or play against a wall?

    Not too long, you don't want to hurt yourself. I personally play against a wall but it shouldn't matter too much. I just think that actually hitting the shuttle and having it come back at you at speed helps your reactions a little and may be more beneficial than just swinging a squash racket around.

    they dont have big biceps lol.. They just have no fat on their body giving the impression the muscle is bigger than it actually is. Due to high definition and toning.

    sight is very misleading at times. Lin Dan is bloody skinny lol hes not tank.

    Remember, in badminton, our body don't need bulky muscle in this fast marathon game: Our body go thru changes from Red fiber muscle which take up more or require more Oxygen than fast white muscle--which don't get tired out quickly. This is the Lean muscle--the marathon runner's muscle. Look at the top marathon runners, you can see their capability of lasting a long run.

    i use squash racket for training last time and after i got stronger,i changed to using tennis racket.BUT,MAKE SUR YOUR HAND IS STRONG ENUF BEFORE USING TENNIS RACKET OR YOU WILL GET WRIST AND ELBOW INJURIES.the only thing about heavy racket training is once i stopped for around 1 week,i could feel the strength decreasing.so once you start you have to continue doing cos the strength/power gain will not stay.

    I will not recommend to use a tennisracket to increase your underarm strength. A squashracket is enough to do that or maybe holding to badmintonrackets together and just swinging them through the air without shuttles. A tennisracket is too heavy and the chance of injury is high.....

    Kind Regards

    I do my daily work out with a old kawasaki badminton racket wich I made havyer by adding a 5 grams bold to the t-joint with a T-rep. It wheights around 110 grams instead of my normal racket (85grams)
    I swing it in two sessions of 1 minut each day for over 1 years.
    I imagine myself standing on the court and also do the footwork with it.

    Wat I also did for a long time and still do is connecting a long elastic to the racket and a steady point on the other side and swing backhand low high for hand low high for 1 minut.

    Especially in doubles I saw a huge step forwards in strengts when playing smaches, backhand and fast net play.

    All in all the way to go for power and i find it really fun to do.
    I am doing it at work while working around in the warehouse.
