    No rest, or break unless you plan a vacation.. LOL
    And coach asks us to follow SOME of the things mentioned in the time table, if we are on vacation elsewhere. And FYI, GAME in the table is just a 7 point winners stay game.
    He says, that when the game is played on 7, players will try their BEST to gain every point. And by chance, if I loose a game, I have no more game that evening.
    Its more like a LESSON. If you dont play your best and defeat people, you dont have to play. lol

    And NO, I definitely dont consider this training LIGHT. Its pretty heavy for me, but coach says that its light and he'll keep adding more things as I improve.

    Sir yes sir.

    I have to offer one very nice link, http://www.fourmilab.ch/hackdiet/e4/ .

    What separates this from other "diets" is that the author goes to great lenghts to explain, over and over again and in different words, how the whole system works, i.e., what makes our body go fat or slim.

    And, take good note, the author does *not* tell you to eat anything specifically, or to not eat something.

    While the basic idea of what he explains fits into one sentence or one image, the author does a great job to explain it in very easy words without any "magic" or weird esoteric stuff.

    Good read, I suggest it. It's the *ideas* that count, not necessarily the practical implications. If you get them pat down (especially the chapter "The Rubber Bag"), the rest will follow easily.

    Play singles 3 times a week(2hours), do cardio drills 2 times a week, with 2 days off. You will lose the weight very quickly.

    P.S. Eat a well-balanced diet, rich in fruits, veggies, with lots of water.

    What did your coach tell you when you asked him about rest periods?

    We got a guest coach to train us recently...
    And he suggested to take breaks ( 2 minutes ) at every 20 minutes of non stop physical activity + a sip of water at every break, to keep yourself hydrated. But that sip should not be more than a sip.

    I meant "rest period" as in taking at least one or two days per week and at least a week per 2 months off completely.

    Check out any reasonable marathon or strength training plan, and you will find that a *lot* of thought goes into planing rest correctly, including varying the intensity of training when not resting.

    Your schedule has you training every single day, with a lot of emphasis on not taking any breaks at all. This is, in general, not light, not even a little bit, this is very hard and detrimental to the body, and works against basic physiology. It's also generally far from optimum for increasing your performance.

    If it works for you guys, and you have no problems at all, then I salute your stamina. Sounds otherworldly. Or maybe I'm just misinterpreting how intense the units of that plan are (in that case, I apologize and retract all accusations made ). Or maybe you're living on a continent where bodys just function different than over here.

    I had to chuckle at the footnotes:

    2) This Schedule must not be handed over to a third person.
    Huh? Why not? And... you just broke this by handing it over to several hundred people.

    7) Training under this schedule for at least 2 years would imrpove your game exponentially.
    Oh. Exponential growth over 2 years would be... well... immense indeed.

    8) Parents would not be allowed, once the training sessions starts.
    Considering 2) - so your parents will indeed not know at all what you do - I'm missing the footnote where he avoids any responsibility for injury or death.

    H.I.I.T.

    high intensity interval training. It gets you very fit, very fast, and its explosive nature really fits in with the speed and pace of badminton.

    I guess we all want to desperately be fit. With age comes some serious limitations though. But 3/wk is good enough for physicals, also balances the side of the body not playing.
