    Default Missing the shuttlecock!

    Hi all,

    Lately, I've been either missing the shuttle completely or hitting the shuttle with the frame. I've had my racket for over a year now but this is the first time where im doing it all the time. Over the summer I spent 3 times a week in the gym exercising my body with weight machines, rowing machines, treadmill, exercise bike etc to build my muscles up and to improve my fitness. Is this the cause of the problem? I've been playing for the past 7 years but this is the first summer where I have trained over the summer.

    Thanks

    your training could have made your muscles stronger and faster. Or, conversely, made them stiffer and slower. In either case you just need time to adjust to the timing for your new body. (just as if you were adjusting to a new racket). Does this ring true to you, or do you suspect something else?
