    Default Playing with anger = more power?

    is it true that if your really pissed off and play, your smashes get way stronger, your stamina increases, and your technique sharpens alot in some areas and really weaken in other areas, or increase in all? for me when i play pissed i hit super hard smashes and i never get tired, but i think for some people their smashes and drop shots are off because they can't focus properly. but my focus on the other hand is sharper then ever, and there is alot of adrenaline, which makes my reflexes and shots sharper and stronger. so if your one of these players is it a good idea to have someone really piss you off before a match or somethin? lol kind of a stupid question

    i believe your touch shots get weak and you lose a lot of energy fast. your body will also be very tense which might lead to sore shoulders and back the next day

    It depends on the person. As long as you can focus then you will play better. Such as if I get angry on the court, instead of trying to win a point with a powerful smash I try to notice everything (weaknesses, openings, opponents stamina, ect). If you are the type who gets angry then decides to smash hard a lot, then it may not be good for you.

    i kinda agree...
    I think that there maybe 2 kinds of anger or maybe more or i dont know...

    1- first anger is that when you get mad becuz the other guy is running away with the scores, but you think that you are still better than him.

    2- the other anger is when, youre shots are so not going it or always going out and u just simply get annoyed with everthing.

    I think for the first anger, one you get angry...u're level of play suddenly increases, cuz i guess as u sed, u're producing more heat, more andrenaline, u get more focus towards yer offense. Turning yer game agressive.

    the second one wont work, cuz when you think that youre hitting harder shots, actually u r not cuz yer body is really tight...

    I once read that some people will focus more when angry but no one can improve performance in a rage.

    i dont think anger would be such a good thing, in my case when im angry i tend to go for pure power and well cause im angry so whatever caused it is clouding my mind so basically i can see a decrease in my preformance. from smashes, touch shots, footwork, placement, etc it all seems to be affected. oh well just what i think about it.

    The issue here is whether anger would focuse your concentration or dissipate energy with misguided outbursts. There are different stress responses for each individuals and at different times. There are times when my anger brought clarity to my game and allowed me to move faster/hit harder, but most of the time I get more stiff, tired and frustrated playing with emotional attachment. The real question here is whether you're channelling your emotion so that it 'fires' you up rather than 'burns' you up.

    Also note that display of anger meant loss of self-control and self-discipline, and might encourage your opponents even more.

    Power does not come from being angry. You subconciously put more effort in a shot when angry.

    Put that same amount of effort into shots when you are calm, Anger has a negative effect on our rational thought process. The calmer you are the clearer you can think during a game.

    if u are angry u are more likely to make more mistakes and unforced error. Since u most likely wanna finish your opponent as quick as possible

    When you are angry, your muscles are all tense. You body is working against itself.

    You actions are less fluid, you can't react as quickly.

    Being aggressive is different though. Especially when it is controlled. Knowing when to turn it on and turn it off is key.

    when i get pissed i start playing a whole lot better...whether its the fact iv finally realised that i have to play properly or, like whats being said, theres a whole lot more adrenaline and get more focused....but that only happens in doubles. in singles when im annoyed i start playing like s**t really. probably because my singles game isnt anywhere near as good as my doubles and mixed. meh i dunno i dont mind as long as i play as well as i can

    I don't know about other sports, but I don't think getting angry at yourself helps badminton. For one thing, in order to get power, you'll need a loose grip and being angry, your body will tense up. Instead of having a looser grip, you will grip harder and consequently, you will need to waste more energy finding that power by other means.

    If anything, being angry could get you less power, not more.

    its different for me, i can control the anger, i actually make the opponent kinda suffer more when im mad and i really actually smash harder lol, its noticable. i think its cause i play for long duration of times (excess 6 hrs each session) and when im tired the smashes get slow, but when i get angry i cant feel the tiredness.

    When you get angry, your body reacts to this by increasing your blood pressure through faster heart beating. This is to supply the rest of the body with more oxygen to help your cells to break down glucose into energy. However due to this most of the time people can't control their movements properly or make irrational mistakes because they can't control this reflex.

    In all honesty you play better as long as you remain cool and do not go over the 'tilt' and trigger this reaction but instead playing the same shot you would in the same situation regardless of the circumstances present and just maintaining focus.
