    Shoes
    Change of Clothes
    Racquet





    Thats it, I still have too much room left in my ugly yonex bag (the dark blue kind, I hate those but had no choice cause couldn't find the light blue yonex ones) which makes it awkward to carry cause balance shifts from 1 side to the other when my shoes slide inside.. heh.

    Default Except when I am with my wife...

    Although we both have our own bags, sometimes we take only one bag, in which case almost all my personal stuff gets removed and in its place:

    her handbag - huge!
    her extra shoes and pumps
    all her change of clothes
    cosmetics bag
    shower kit (body soaps, lotions, shampoos, conditioners, scrubbers)
    hair dryer
    curling iron
    feminine stuff

    I'll find my stuff sitting in the basement.

    Default The Neoprene Man

    I carry some Neoprene gear for my knees (don't always wear them though), and nowadays also an elbow support due to a recent injury...

    Oh yeah, and a skipping rope of course for warmups when there is no space to jog.

    I do not know. I do not have any exact proof. Theoretically it should be the fastest way how to deliver some extra energy. To be on a safe side I would say that it has some psychological efect on me at least.

    I am not aware of such posting. I tried search function and result was negative. Probably someone else posted such opinion.

    Default Glucose: too much too fast

    Glucose is a fast source of energy, yes.

    But in tablet form it's probably one of the worst things you could take during a high-impact activity such as badminton. Glucose is extremely fast carbohydrates, it is absorbed quickly and will cause a sudden increase in insulin production which will make you feel REALLY tired and slow!

    So, in fact glucose tablets are counter-productive in this case.

    This is also why water is better than most sports drinks. A good sports drink shouldn't have more than 2-5 % of sugar. Most of them have a lot more than that.
