    Default Training rackets

    just a question, do those steel rackets that go for somewhere like SG$20 or less make good training rackets? they are yonex rackets, code is something like B-500DF, B-600DF and B-700 or 460, 560 and 660. dont really remember. they have external T-joints
    The problem with them is that they are still not heavy enough....Training racket needs to be minimum of 150 grams to really build your muscle...steel rackets are about 100gram ????....In the earlier post I mentioned to Enthusiast that giadinhsports has the trainer for about 25-35usd...I paid 25 for mine but could not buy directly from the distributor...and dont know for sure how much they sell for internationally....

    Muscle CAN NOT be trained to be fast...It can be built, but not "trained"...A large bulky bicep does not move as quickly as a long one...
    Besides, Reaction is in the brain not in the muscle...and by being fast I assume you were talking about reaction time...I wish there was a way to train myself to be fast...About the only way I can think of to get faster is to work on "foot work"...
    There are fast twitch and slow twitch muscles and different training methods for each. And I don't think your large bulky bicep example is accurate. Sprinters tend to be highly muscular, and yet very fast.

    If you dont believe me about the bulky muscle just ask any Weight Trainer or look it up on the internet...Sprinters use the thigh and calf muscles to go in a straight line and the muscle does not contract and expand fully...This is not the post for weight training anyway...how did we get off on this???
