    I would say the most important are:

    1) Shoulder

    2) Biceps

    3) Chest

    4) Stomach

    in that order.

    Although of course you need good leg strength too, but I think these muscles are the most essential for both power and control.

    A lot of players with shoulder pain are told to train up their back muscles to relieve pressure on the part of the shoulder which suffers from over-use (rotator cuff?). I think that might be more useful than lifting weights to bulk up for your arm and shoulder.

    The leg/thigh muscles by far are the most important, just look at most of the pro's thigh muscles. Power for hitting the shuttles mainly comes from the forearm.

    The brain, isn't really a muscle :-P

    Legs are of course most important..

    I dont agree at all with david14700..

    biceps?? not very useful badminton muscle..

    Stomach and back mucles (body core musles) are extremely important to no "fall trough" an maintan center of gravity and balance all times..
    Far more important than chest and biceps imop.

    Then forearm, and shoulders (espceially rotator cuffs) are important for power and racket-handling.. also fingers, and wrist musles are good to train..

    my 2 cents.

    agreed. otherwise, lin dan would have massive bisceps, as would Fu Haifeng. i think it's the forearm which generates most of the energy

    If you perform a supination (backhand) action while holding your bicep, you will feel it tense up somewhat, which suggests that the bicep contributes at least slightly to backhands. It's not really worth building them up to the size of grapefruits, though, as there's a specific forearm muscle (called the supinator) which is responsible for this movement. I'm not aware of any upper arm muscle that contributes to the forehand action at all.

    I always include some twists with one-way loaded dumbells at the end of my bodybuilding routine nowadays - have a look at

    and

    To be honest, I agree with everybody who has answered "brain", as a smart player will always beat a thicko (even if he can hit 250 mph smashes).

    I have seen fu hai feng's biceps on tv when they close up, yea, they are big as least his left ones. He whole arm is really big.

    For me the most important muscle of course the whole arm, calves (speed) , thigh (quads, hamstrings) , trunk.
