    Default Fatigue is getting bigger & over swinging easy high serves?

    Well has anyone experience this? I have so far and I've been play badminton Tuesday Thursday Friday and Sunday for around 21 hours all in total. I train my self hard and push my self to my limits and people I play suddenly get close to me or win a set when usually I would win 21- less then 10 or at 10 it's really aggravating. Should I take a break for a week or so? Thanks BC

    People would improve over time. Also, over the period of time if you keep playing with and against Another same people, they would figure out where you will hit for certain shots and prepare for it.

    I find myself facing the same issue and played with others instead of my usual group. With a different group of people, I am exposed to a wide range of styles and abilities. When I play with my usual group again, I also played differently.

    You might want to play lesser with your group or vary your shots.

    Might not really need a break.

    Another possibility is to relook at the techniques and seek a new high. If you have a coach, he should be able to guide you.

    I don't want to ask a stupid question... but why does it matter? You are training hard. Your focus should be on YOU, not on them. Who cares how they do against you? The question is: how are YOU performing?

    Notice that their performance changing does not affect you. If they improve, thats fine. Your focus should be on your game, not on theirs. But it sounds like you are focusing on how easily you can beat people. That is pointless - you should be focussing on how well you are moving, how well you are playing your shots, how well you are strategizing, how well you apply your strategy etc. If you get beaten, or come close to losing, most people will ask "am i too tired? should I take a break? why am I struggling". Instead, you should be asking yourself - how did I feel during the game? how was my footwork? how many mistakes did I make? what shall I improve in training next week to eliminate my weaknesses? what is it about the way they played shot X that made it difficult to return?

    Good luck!

    Young you may be, but everyone's muscles need time to recover.

    There is nothing wrong with doing weights when you are younger, you just have to make sure not to go overboard or go to heavy. If you don't want to use weights then you can always do body weight exercises and psychometric/explosive stuff, they are very useful for badminton and doing them while adding even 5-10lbs in a weight vest or some other way not only makes them all the more harder but will help to strengthen your muscles and benefit you more.

    On another note to your original question/post. If you play with the same people a lot they will learn how you play and how to counter your game. It could have just been an off day as your body was tired from all the badminton. They could have had a great day or improved their skills. There's many factors but what matters the most is how you played, you cant measure your success based on how many points other players get on you, it has to be on how you played. MSeeley put it very well in his post so I don't need to or mean to reiterate it.
