    Default Numerous problems, HELP!!!

    Okay, since i started training to another coach my footwork has been DIMINISHED. Damn, my footwork has never been worse, my reaction time also got slower. Everytime i play singles and my opponent sends a high clear, instead of running after the shuttle i just jump and try to reach it. Quite dumb, right? Well, i wasn't like that before, i can even create smashes from those clears. Also, i adjusted on how i hold my racket. They advised to hold the racket grip to the very end. I did, it is much comfortable for me and makes whipping easier, however everytime there is a kill opportunity or a smash, it always goes out. I didn't experience this before with my normal grip. They say to flick my wrist, but i find it hard to. Any help? Thanks

    Run behind the shuttle. Sounds like you already partly know the answer. You are not getting back behind the shuttle. You said you jump and try to reach it. Your "smash" goes out, sound exactly like the result of poor positioning. Did you change your grip for the smash, like previously holding in the middle of the grip and now bottom towards the butt? Why are you not running back on clears? Are you subconsciously thinking you can't cover the front so you are too far forward? Initial jump is poor?

    I think his coach is asking him to block jump to intercept which is supposedly faster than stepping back.

    But his coach may not have take into account his weaker legs and push off.

    Practice it more. It takes time to build up strength in those thighs and calves. Do more plyometric training.

    And the hitting out part, use more pronation and start out with less power but more angle.
