    Smile Muscle Training - A Careful Regime

    Hello everybody.

    We all do understand our body muscles plays an important role in helping us to perform our many movements on court.

    Now, what i am here to discuss with you today is whether to build extra muscles out of an ordinary training regime a badminton player normally do.

    For instance, a normal high school player is expected of a daily(ordinary) regime from his coach like jogging, running, footwork, sit-ups.

    The issue now is should one try to build more than sufficient muscles in the gospel hope of improving his/her game to another level?

    An example ie. if we are to ask a professional body builder to play badminton, he would probably be moving extremely slow in the court due to his heavy muscles.

    In due course, these heavy muscles may even cause joint injuries to him/her because the variations of body/hands/legs/wrist movement requirements expected of badminton is extremely high.

    Hope this serves interesting to discuss.

    This question comes up frequently, but realistically I don't think it is a likely scenario. This is asked a lot by skill-sport athletes and girls that are learning to lift weights. The concern is excessive bulk leading to poor performance (in the case of the athletes) or unfeminine appearance (for the girls).

    The problem is that the difficulty of gaining this muscle mass is under-estimated. A body-builder spends most physical work capacity in the weight room stimulating his muscles; for a badminton player, after you subtract the energy needed to participate in badminton practice/competition, you're left with less energy available for strength training.

    Secondly, bodybuilders are quite abnormal compared to normal people and even most other athletes in terms of their diets. They need to ingest an enormous amount of food to help gain muscle mass. You often see wannabe bodybuilders at the gym that are skinny. Even though they train hard at the gym, they don't follow it up with the eating necessary to gain weight. Several years later, they're the same size. If these people who are trying to gain muscle have so much difficulty doing so, it is somewhat presumptuous to think that one could gain "too much" muscle so quickly that you couldn't stop when your muscle mass was "just right." Even if you do, you can simply train a little less and lose that muscle mass.
