However, do bear in mind that each athlete is different and he/she may like certain foods that can give more or less the same combination balance. It is OK but make sure enough of esp carbo and liquids are taken before, during and after training or competitions. And ensure that sufficient in-between rest for the athlete in order not to expedite fatigue and cause injury eg. LCW's recent back injury because of overtraining. Also at least two hours needed in between eating and time of training/competition, more time if food is not easily digestible or if athlete has to eat plenty (voracious appetite).
In competitions, when the player may have to wait his turn and this could take more than an hour, do ensure that the player gets to eat something easily digestible, eg banana, sports bar (of sweet stuff like chocolate), sports drink, etc, in between. Adequate liquid consumption is very important to prevent dehydration which will impact adversely on performance.

Sorry didn't get you. Please enlighten me on how the following two setences contradict one another....
Try doing these strengthening exercises after badminton training, before stretching / flexibility.
Sports science is the new way to train smart and prevent unnecessary injury

Yes, it is vital to stretch BEFORE training to prevent injury.
However, it is important also to warm-down after training. Many atheletes these days incorporate stretching into warm down. So they STRETCH AFTERWARDS too.
Sorry didn't make it clear. The streching I was talking about is the set you do AFTER training.
Traditionally, warm-down was thought to dissipate the lactic acid from anaerobic metabolism. I donno.. it's been a while since went to medschool, views may have changed or gone out of fashion.
But the stretching afterward thing was forced upon me by a coach who coached at Singapore Sports School (Kelly Wee).. quite good.
Hehe.. personally, I try to stretch as much as i can, before training, between games, after games, after getting up, before bed etc... to loosen up the muscles...to minimize injury.

Also to the previous post about bulging muscles, I dont think I have to worry about it. I can really tone my upper body and legs but unless I drastically change my workout and diet there is no way I can get 'huge', even with heavy weights. I just dont eat enough and my body just isn't built that way. However when I retire from badminton (whenever that may be) I'm going to try to get huge for the look.

This workout seems to be geared towards metabolic work/lactic acid tolerance, so it should help develop your muscular endurance. Strength and hypertrophy gains are probably not going to happen with this type of loading though.

Sorry about that. I have a notorious history of not making things perfectly clear.
these strengthening exercises are referring to Eurasion's 'to the point of puking weight training'.
Personally I would never advise anybody to do this kind of straineous weight training after rigorous Badminton training. As injuries would be much more likely to happen.
So, that would not be be Sports Science like. Hence the contradiction.
Understanding of your body's potential & limitations, rather than push & hope your body can take it'.
