    Two sessions of 2-hours game-play a week now. It is a classic example of mind willing to do more but body just refuse to co-operate.

    While on the badminton team I played every day 2 hours...that was great. That would be the only reason I'd ever get out of bed and go to school: to play badminton at the end of the day.

    Badminton season's over though . Now what'll I do...

    I practice Sunday's, train on Tuesday nites 5-7, then play singles, mixed, and two doubles on Tues nights, and train on Thursdays nights 5-7pm.

    And I like to run once a week as well. I want to train on Monday's as well.

    And I've started Saturday mornings for an hour, foot work drills.

    Ah you lucky git! It would be nice to get out that many times a week. Sadly I live in a remote part of Canada, (no it's not all remote), and thus I can only get out 4 times a week. But it is for 4-5 hours a time. The worst part is that there are literally NO coaches in Northwest B.C. It is kinda depressing if you really love the sport and want to excell but can't because you don't have the proper coaching. I am moving down to the lower-mainland for the coaching. It would be great to be able to get out six days a week for a couple of hours. In just a few months I will Ciao guys!

    Yes, it does amaze me that some people can play seven days a week. Well, these people probably don't have a job or family to take care of(not saying you have no life besides badminton). If I am lucky, I can play once a week.

    Default How Often Do You Play?

    i usually play twice a week,..2 hours to 3 hours.

    sometimes, if there's an opportunity for me to play on weekends,
    4 hours is the minimum.

    Hi,
    I used to play about 4 to 5 times a week. But when I am overaeas, I will usually still play at least 4 times a week. My wife said I am Mad but I love this game very much so to say Bad Addict.

    Some update on my "lazier" life style:

    Used to play 4-5 times a week, but for the past 2.5 months, I think I played no more than 5-6 times in total. No wonder I am gaining weight in no time...

    Yeah, I noticed that with Badminton. If you start playing irregularly after lets say some months of steady playing the weight gain comes on really fast.

    Right now, I'm playing around 5 days a week, 4-5 hours each day for a total of around 20-25hours per week.

    Guys,

    Out of curiosity for those who qualify for being classified as extreme in my books, don't your body crave for a break if you play 4-5 hrs a day ?

    That's like 15-20% of your time and with a decent 8 hrs of sleep everyday, you are only left with 11-12 hrs for other things. Don't you study or work?

    Or is there a secret energy potion that you consume ??

    new schedule, yee-hah!!!!
    it's 6 days for me...
    monday: 07:00-08:15 or soemthing, morning practise
    thuesday: 2 hours evening practise
    wednesday: morning practise+ evening practise
    thursday: midday practise
    friday: mornign practise
    sunday: competition (yet to start)

    You really have to focus your week on it...I loce to do it, and it feels like a dream come true (have yet to start mornign practise....tomorrow). but there's not much lumbering about behind a computer, no clubbing and stuff...a lot of 'no' but I really really like it...
    I (so far) can't say I need a break....because I love the game so much...

    The Downside...my legs are kinda still sore from last sunday: not much recovery with such a great/sadistic trainer and I like it...
