    This thread below was started by myself ages ago and I got a lot of responses from it

    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ad.php?t=56664

    Now my question is of al the people who replied, ave you achieved ur short term goals?


    I ave indeed, my last short term goal was to beat the 2 best players in my club at singles, I did that last nit, I won 23 - 21 and 21 - 19. I beat the 2 of them on the 1 night which I was amazed at. They are both couple grades above me but I beat them. My proudest moment in badminton .

    Return to National Standard within 6-8 Months.
    Increase footwork, Stamina and fitness to peak level.
    Develop a perfect jump smash which is accurate. (I already have a monster smash just gota get my accuracy and aim back)
    Drop 10kgs.
    Return to Competitive A grade within 6 months.

    LONG TERM GOALS!

    Get graded From A grade to Open grade.
    Play at the Open Nationals. For My state.
    Progress to the national Squad for Australia.
    Become an international star for australia!!!

    Also im mainly concentrating on Singles. If i can find an appropriate partener then il take up doubles and mixed because i enjoy all 3 forms of the game. But singles is my favourate and was my strongest point before i took time off.

    (hopefully the long term goals will be achieved within 12 -18 months.)
    1/ Im close to national standard. Currently would be placed within the top10 Singles Open grade players in my State.
    2/ Footwork,speed and fitness has increased amazingly but still along way to go.
    3/ My big smash is back i can aim now just fine tuning the technique to get as much power and angle as possible and work on a high rate of consistancy.
    4/ Iv lost 20kgs so double what my short term goal was.

    5/ Would be confident i can take out A grade titles in Queensland. Unfortunately theres no individual competitions left until next year so ill have to wait till 2010.

    LONG TERM
    1/ Hopefully this will be achieved when the tournaments begin next year.
    2/ Hopefully in 10 months time when nationals are in 2010 i will be strong enough to secure a spot in the State Open Squad.
    3/ Might be achieved by the end of 2010 but more looking at 2011.
    4/ A dream which only time will tell if it can be achieved

    Short Term
    1. Get back in shape (lose 15% body fat, drop weight down to 165lbs, increase stamina, increase muscle)
    2. Get back footwork, then increase efficiency and speed
    3. Get back touch (shot accuracy - net drops, drops)
    4. Get back power

    It's a lot of getting back to my peak and then some.

    Long Term
    1. Increase muscle to help stabilize and protect joints
    2. Maybe start playing tournaments again (only when 1 is done)
