    Default Every badminton's player dilemna

    Alright I have to say, I pretty much notice this on every player but...


    Are you a victim of the badminton one armed syndrome where one hand is retardedly large/strong and the other is some gimp limp flimsy arm?

    I know I am

    your preferred arm/leg will always be bigger than the other one because you use it more often in life.

    One thing I've noticed is that my left leg is much more reactive/springy, and my right leg is much stronger.

    after 2 decades of badminton, my entire right upper body more developed than the left. if my massage therapist didn't tell me that my right leg is also stronger, i would have never believe it. because there is no visible difference on the leg, but he said his hands can feel the stronger muscle mass and tone on the right leg. all those lunging and heavy breaking on the drop/net shots...

    Not as much now - when i was younger, I was certainly right side dominant ( and let to a lot of problems) - but I've been weight lifting for 15 years now both side are relatively the same.

    I've noticed a lot. Though both of my arms are really skinny, my right is thicker, and my wrists are very different in terms of size. And this is only after 5 years of badminton. Haha

    I noticed my right shoulder is slightly drooping even when I stand straight.

    Fu is not that serious if compare to Nadal in tennis... Nadal's left bicep is like 2 or 3 times the size of his right.(he is left-handed by the way)

    i got another problem, my left leg is slightly smaller than my right leg as in the quads. not really big diff but my outer quads is visible. Weird. Usually its arm but legs, maybe something is wrong with my training. By the way, i am right handed.

    Here's another imbalance: Start in the position with your arm is 90 degrees out to the side and your elbow bent 90 degrees. Externally rotate your arm (ie the hand moves back but the elbow stays in the same place) and see how far back it goes.

    Every time you swing, you're performing a ballistic stretch on your shoulder. As a result that arm has a tendency towards overflexibility and consequently instability. In terms of what kind of training to do with this shoulder, you'll need to compensate for that by performing stability and stiffness exercises for the shoulder.
