    Default Weight Lifting

    I personally think that weight training won't help as much...its all about technique (ie footwork)...running would be a better option to make you faster

    the professionals who weight train do not seem to suggest that.... unless they are weight training just to look a certain way but I doubt that.

    Default Leg Press beneficial in Badminton

    Does any one find the leg press very good for badminton?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leg_press

    I do, I find in badminton, the stress on the legs is quite a lot like landing from a jump and lunging. Or landing from a scissor kick (around the head), many sources say, the impact forces on the ankle is 3-4 times the body weight..

    Is it true, that not only weight training on the legs helps prevent injury but also make one jump higher?

    Calf strength for spring....
    Leg press cannot compare with Squats for awesome gains.
    Also Deadlifts are damn good....!!!

    good point. easiest people to compare are lin dan and lee chong wei. one does weight training, one looks like he'll struggle with the groceries. and who won OG gold? weight training is very helpful, although machine weights aren't as useful as free weights.

    sure, technique training is important, but to be truly good, you need both.

    Yup Phandrew.

    Weight lifting breaks down your muscle fibers, it is the resting part that allows your muscles to become bigger and stronger. So one or two days rest is needed.
    The differences will be obvious after a couple of days rest.

    Depends on if you are taking protein, BCAA's, creatine and recovery products after weight training.
    Taking a product like SizeOn during training and whey protein 15 min after training ensures basically no pain at all the next day

    pain is dangerous. i would say muscle sore is good, any other sort of pain is probably bad.

    My personal experience is that running helps boosting up your stamina. Go running 3 times a week, and your badminton single game will go up really fast. I never did muscle training for my arms.

    Don't over weights, more repetition on less weight is better. Less injury. The idea is just to work out on the muscles.

    muscular endurance in other words, so your muscles can preform longer under stress and not fatigue as quickley

    Dude..this is not body building time...ur way is for like football players..cmon a badminton player wouldn't spend their time lifting weights a whole weekly basics...they would rather go to the courts and try to improve their footwork.
