if you want to get stronger do weights go to the gym workout
but if you just want to smash you should work on your technique first before working on arm power, smashing with wrong technique is a waste of strength it will tire you

i really don't think specialized trips will help you out tremendously, our school played against a school who had wrestlers as their badminton team, they were like big macho muscular robots, too bad they sucked
i think ur time would be better spent on the court
btw what level are you at?

You might try aerobics classes that involve rapid stepping patterns, performed to music with cues provided by an instructor. You might want to choose a class that best matches your physical performance level at the moment.
Yep, that's not a real badminton exercise, but can be an interesting alternative.

Many badminton strokes don't require as much muscle power as in other sport. Working on proper techniques will help you tremendously. At the place where I play there's a little boy who's merely as tall as net height, but he can still give many adults hard time with his good clears and decent net play.
At recreational level, physical strength is not often a big issue. However if you want to improve your physics, the first thing to do is working on improving your foot work and stamina.

Yep, definitely wrist work would be good. For maximum effect with least amount of effort, you might consider strengthening your fingers, wrist and forearm rotation. That would turn your arm and hand into a dangerous weapon on a badminton court
You may also feel that there is a problem with stroke production, even though the actual problem is in the travel phase (footwork) before the stroke: in this case your positioning and balance may not be optimal for smashing.
If you are behind the shuttle, well balanced, hitting the shuttle using a good whipping action and all this takes place between the net and the doubles long service line, it should be quite difficult for your opponent to return all your smashes.
Well, one more issue comes into my mind, though. This happens to me every now and then because players at my level can read my strokes quite well.
Namely, if I am smashing and trying to achive 110% of my max power, my opponent can return the shuttle and possibly regain attack. However, if I try to achieve only 90% power and use the remaining margin for clever placement of the shuttle or to build some kind of deception, then I will be more likely to hit winners...

Big and strong can be a dissadvantage, I would sooner be slight and agile but as I dont have that option I have to relly on being able to hit hard.
Work on your timing and technique more than your physical strength but do a little light weight training and let the power grow over the next couple of years.
