fatigue/strain/pain in legs DURING rallies
i get pain/strain/fatigue (not sure which one) in my shins and almost all the way down to my foot during training (where i am being shuttle fed consecutively 20 shuttles or sth like tht)
when i move (any movement, but ESPECIALLY at the back, where i move backwards to hit the shuttle)
this happens after a while, like 10-15 shuttles into the feeding.
this sometimes happens during matches as well during long rallies when i need to keep moving backwards.
how can i stop this kind of pain/fatigue/strain? is it footwork or fitness?
tired legs perhaps?
because of the pain/fatigue/strain, i cannot play as fast and as well and cannot move as normal too (slower due to pain).
is that enough info? ask me more questions about what,when,how etc to know more.
any advice is much appreciated, fellow BCers.

If you think that you may have shin splints then check out my recent post in the General forum. In particular, take a look at post #11 in this thread:

hmm, but the pain doesnt stay there for a couple of days. it only happens during long rallies, 10 to 15 shuttles into shuttle feeding. after resting a while, the fatigue/pain is gone. so... is that still a shin splint?

Agreed. I suggest you do some training for these muscle groups to build up their strength, as it sounds like you're getting the beginning of a an overuse injury from excess stress and fatigue on the muscle.
May I ask, how old are you?

Static stretching appears to improve flexibility when performed afterward. It does, however, not appear to prevent injuries. In fact, it has been found for some sports that risk of injury appears to increase when static stretching is done prior to exercise. It also has been found to diminsh the ability to generate power (speed strength) and degrades athletic performance when included as part of the warmup sequence.
It appears that most high school & even some/many collegiate coaches have not yet gotten the word on this change. However, most professional teams & athletes currently only perform static stretching after their training or competition.

Try a google or BC Search on dynamic stretching for more info.

I get pain in my elbow after playing long rallies during a match......DONT KNOW WHY..do u think my arm is WEAK????

i get aches too. now i tend to rub pain relieving analgesic (deep heating rub) on the area where i am usually experiencing pain or soreness like the back, the elbow area and wrist area, the knee area, the shoulder especially the racket holding side and calf area. then i make sure i warm up and do stretches. since i started doing this the pain seldom follows me home after a badminton game. only once in a while the muscle just below the buttocks will be sore if i lunge too much. and if that happens, after a nice cooling shower, i will apply the heat rub again. so far it worked for me.

the best thing is to work on technique.
anyway i have leg aches usually AFTER playing....but sometimes during extensively tiring drills ( especially 4 corners random feeding ) i feel more ache on my left side thanks to a ligament tear 1 year ago. not much pain actually but my left ankle is considerably weaker now. hope massaging my leg helps to recover more quickly

I, too, suffered with shin splints for many years, because all my fitness training was geared towards time trialing in cycling/ where badminton was a pastime back then. My legs/shins were not used to/hardened to the impact of running. To help this I was advised to do some running but not too much as this would effect my cycling muscles. Whether this was true I dont know, it was 22 years ago!!
These days I use Sorbathane footbeds in my trainers, especially as some badminton trainers are very low and flat they dont always have enough of the shock absorbtion material.
Make sure you wear suitable badminton trainers. Running shoes are for running in a straight line not for changing direction quickly as in our sport!
Get someone to check your foot placing technique when going to the rearcourt, making sure to turn your racquet foot out, parallel with rear line when you can. When going to the forehand rearcourt to retrieve a shuttle that has got behind you, will stress your shins, so be aware that you place your heal first and point your toes towards direction of travel. The same will be said of moving to shots in the fore-court also - try to place your heal first!!
