    Break strings every session means you are hitting it wrong....

    Maybe but if you watch pro doubles players take out loose shuttles over the net with no swing I would bet the shuttle moves faster than most amateurs full smash

    Breaking strings every session,.. Hmmmm.

    Check you're not twisting the racket head at the last minute,... Strings are made for head on impact, so A proper smash hit correctly should not bother them at all,.. Sliced or miss hit smashes (coupled with fancy slice drops and disguises) will gobble strings up like there's no tomorrow.

    Having massive muscles in badminton is a hinderence,.. They restrict rotation of your body (especially around the shoulders, waist and back) meaning you lose a lot of swing and a lot of movement necessary for generating racket speed. a lot of work is needed to get a big guy/girl to hit the shuttle as hard as a skinny guy because they need to learn to rotate their body with the shot to use the muscles that will give the power to the racket.

    The reason a lot of little guys can hit so hard is also an illusion in some cases,.. A smash from a little guy will naturally be a lot flatter (unless they're jumping) than that of a taller guy, so the smashes are harder to return and are not as easily countered by the standard 'racket down' return for an angled smash. Just seems faster because it's coming at your face lol!
