    Default Biggest badminton insight: what was it?

    For me, it was getting more behind the bird. Smashes are steeper and I'm actually looking where I'm hitting lol

    reaching up for the bird. this extends the body and arm, and also adds a little hop to the feet.

    Being on my toes rather than flat footed. For singles, not trying to smash EVERYTHING.

    I find that if my heels do not touch the ground (assuming I am not jumping), the accuracy of my smash improves.

    After seeing some beginners play yesterday, I was reminded of how I started out. I'm going to have to add "switching from panhandle to basic grip". Panhandlers seem to use twice the effort for half the power and can't return anything once it's gone past them.
