    Default How To Improve Faster???

    Hi guys..
    I just want to ask how can i improve faster in my singles game other than having a coach. I am willing to spend most of my time training. Can any of you guys give suggestion on what to do in order to improve faster?

    Cool

    Joint a good club maybe Nusa Mahsuri or you may train under Han Jian and enter as many tournament as you can. Make sure you do a post morterm after each game / tournement.

    Just my 2 cents advise

    Playing 3 to 6 times per week would certainly help. This should include a lot of drills as well as actual play. Drills should include a lot of footwork practice as well as a lot of 2 corner & 3 corner drills.

    How is your stamina? It is good to have a solid aerobic base. However, since much/most of badminton is anaerobic, interval training is very important. The combination of fitness & footwork can do wonders for your singles game.

    You should really practice your footsteps when you were at home so you can get the hang of it

    haha i was in your position about 4 months ago and since then i've been playing about 4 times a week (10 hours) and using 1 of those days just doing drills. its good to start with the basic things such as drop shots and foot work before you go on to smashes... doing that i reckon you would see a lot of improvement as i have seen a dramatic change in my game

    Default A wise friend once told me...

    If you're 16 or older, start incorporating weight resistence into your training routine. Practice more, play less but try to make quality shots in your games. Go 100% when you do play... regardless of opposition calibre. If you have qualms about smashing newbies, focus on shot placement and play a running game to improve on your recovery and strategy. As soon as you established reasonably sound fundamentals, keep up the intensity of training sessions by hitting harder and moving faster all the time. That way you'll find it easier to go 100% in actual games.

    There were/are many kinds of traditional trainings which I have done in Indonesia (when I was young, ofcouse. ).
    One of the trainings is very simple.
    Bind a sandbag round you ankels, wear a weight jacket and do practice your footwork.

    having a good coach will help you improve much faster than what you are able to do on your own.

    Darma,

    Then you should have make it clearer in the first place. I think most of us made the basic assumption that you weren't able to afford a coach since you're a student.

    In your situation, practice practice and more practice. Since you have a decent coach, the form you practice will be the proper one. Also, be mindful to have proper breaks in training. Muscles build up when they're at rest.

    I strongly agree with cappy. Without a well defined question, a lot of time will be wasted on clarification. People got vey tired in the stage of just making clear of the questions without the time and resources to help solving.

    Hope you will give the best background and clearer Qs next time and the next day a lot of enthusiastic members will share their experiences with you pointing to the hard core of the questions.

    Happy training.

    Why don't you ask your coach this question since he/she will know your game better than us

    As far as I have encountered coaches give good honest critical advice when asked!
