    Default Technique

    I think having bigger arms and stronger legs may help your game alittle bit.. but i think its mostly technique.. i have a friend that's not big at all.. and he can do clears like nothing! I am still working on my clear as i just picked up Badminton again since high school... i graduated from Cambie in 2001. My clears are so weak it usually ends up setting up a perfect smash for my opponent.. lol! embarassing..

    I browsed a little for shoulders, and that one caption caught me, "Turn Your Shoulders Into Boulders" ... that's catchy, but gave me the chuckles!

    Good website.

    I actaully do no shoulder training at all ( like over head presses) - I've found that I lose way to much mobility and flexibility. I can barely hit an over the head to begin with.

    Are you kidding me? When I work out the shoulders, I feel like I have so much strength. I usually do shoulder strugs with weights. They feel good too.

    But now I seldom workout because of school. I hate it, I have no time to work out and play badminton.

    If I have no time to workout, I just do push ups at home. 100-200 a day in total. You'll be surprised how big your triceps can get.

    Shoulder shrugs work your traps, I'm looking at the outside shoudler (delts) area which are built up by the likes of military press, clean and jerk, straight arm raises etc.

    I do upright rows and shrugs all the time as part of my back workout - it doesn't seem to bother my swing to much. Chest workout is another matter.

    I don't do weight training too much however, I do mix badminton with swimming. Ii do one day of badminton and one day of swimming. This way I regain strength quickly, in addition, swimming really helps me to build up my stamina. Weight training part of work out I focus on wrist strength training.

    I have a competition with another BFer (doesn't post much) - we did measurements on our arms, chest and belly.

    Total inches gained on the arms and chest, plus total inches lost on the gut. Whoever has the higher number gets all you can eat sushi bought by the loser.

    Check in is the day of my tourney March 3/4th. Will be doing weights six days a week along with LOTS of stretching and hitting the shuttle to stay loose.

    I'd recommend weight training that improves power. Instead of doing those really slow movements, do quick extended ones. There's hardly any relationship between muscle size and power. For badminton, the only weight training exercises I do are for my wrist muscles (forgot the name ), triceps and legs.

    I work out at the YMCA four days a week too. But i stopped since the high school season started. I cant not play my best if i continue, as my legs are sore for a few days after heavy squatting and leg presses. And my forearms locks up after deadlifts day so its hard to play, im gonna start again once season is over by the begining of summer.

    i voted for the 1st one. I work out and play badminton but i workout 2 build strength and have toned muscles rather then bulky size and I find that it helps with my explosiveness and footwork, and jumpsmashes.
