    It really depends on how fit you are. If you are exhausted after 2 hours, then pushing yourself to 3 or 4 will harm you more than it would help you. 2-3 hours a day, 7 days a week would be my personal preference. I like to work out in smaller chuncks.

    While training, be sure to drink plenty of water. Stay away from soft drinks & other high calories fluids. Even drinking too much juice is not recommended -- some is ok, but it is too easy to ingest a lot of calories if you drink a lot of juice.

    Complement your on-court training with some rope jumping and other cardio exercise -- interval training is best. A bit of strength development with weights will help to boost your metabolism (basal metabolic rate)-- in order to burn more calories & lose more weight.

    NO...dont training...your skills is good enough.
    Dont want you to kick my ass on court.. J/k

    As upstairs saids. Depends how fit are you. And did you stop playing for awhile and just pick up again. Or you always being active. I stopped playing badminton for two years. So I started stop to get my movement back first. Jogging a mile per week. Do more you have time. Training my timing and consistency on shots. I play like about 2 days a week 3hrs a day. Since the tournament is at Smash City. Its a good idea to know the floor and the courts at that gym. Oh ya make sure you strench before you do any exercise, dont want you to hurt yourself before tournament. Also slow down your exercise before tournament dont over do yourself.

    I will see you at that tournament........

    Default Dynamic vs. Static stretching

    Only dynamic stretching should be performed prior to exercise. Dynamic stretching is stretching performed with motion -- no stretch should be held, if at all, for more than a second or so. It has been found in recent years that static stretching (holding a stretch for 10-30 seconds) is actually detrimental to athletic performance.

    It has also been found that static stretching, performed prior to exercise, does not prevent injuries -- in some cases, it even appears to promote the likelihood of injury. Static stretching should only be after exercise -- as part of a cool down routine.

    I totally agree with you. I am too lazy to put everything in words. Guess I am those kind guys who dont pay much attention to details. Agree, need to strench before and after the game. I am too tired to do anything after the game.

    You really need more than a month to really benefit from tons of practice. You will improve a bit, but you need to be careful of what you're doing. If you plan on just working out to improve your muscles, then you need to take into account recovery time. If you go into the tournament and your body hasn't recovered from all that training, then you're probably going to do much worse than you would have if you just went in without any training.

    I say depending on your schedule, try to hit at least 3 or 4 times a week. You can probably work on shots and strategy, but I don't know if you're the type of person that can just soak in information and apply it like that. As long as you're doing something, you'll make a bit of improvement.
