    Default Top 10 most tiring sports?

    Hey guys, my friends and i had a debate saying which sports are more tiring,

    on one side, the badminton side, we say that, of course badminton is more tiring since you have to move ALOT and sometimes you're against players who can smash over 150 kph,

    so ya, give me a list. and by the way, if your thinking of soccer or basketball, your wrong actually, soccer, you have like 20 people on your team and all you need to do are light jogs and passing, basically the same with basketball.

    Am from the UK, soccer or as we call it football is very tiring. U should play 5 a side indoor football, ul be wrecked after 5 mins!! No joke lol.

    Plus the real thing, is played on a massive outdoor pitch, so lots of running. In 1 match, a player can run up to 12 miles so thats a lot of running!!

    If you look up a table showing calories burned you'll find that while competitive badminton is up there it is by no means the top. Competitive soccer is one of the highest (unless you're the goalie), and basketball is still higher than badminton.

    Cross country skiing is the MOST tiring sport of all - I'm sorta surprised it hasn't been mentioned before...

    Is this list supposed to be based on personal experience? Cross country skiing is probably up there but no more so than many others.

    It also depends at what level you're talking about. Top level anything is going to be physically demanding. If it comes down to it, I think a lot of vehicle racing (Rally, Lemans, Formula 1... etc.) is demanding, there aren't that many sports out there that require you to concentrate that hard for that long.

    They just happen to be the most fit people in the world when a study where their fitness is measured is performed. Where the best badmintonplayers are @ eighties(8x) they are around the ninethies(9x).... Hence leading to me saying that it is probably the most tiresome sport...

    Default How to compare apple to apple

    Marathon..............
    After finishing my marathon, my muscle ached till i walked with a limp home.....

    I would say if you play soccer or basketball or tennis or badminton or swimming for 1 full hour each, the tiredness should be similar. But if I play with a weak player in a competition for 15 minutes, compare to I play soccer for full 90 minutes, which is more tiring, you can guess.....

    I run marathon for 4 plus hour and you can guess how tired it can be.

    But I can say that badminton player earn peanut compare to soccer, tennis player.

    You all think you know tiring sports, ha!

    Try darts or snooker/billiards

    Darts: do know know how knackering it is to have to walk all 5 steps up to the ockie (sp?) to throw a dart WHILE balancing a pint in the other hand? Truly a gruelling endeavour

    Snooker/billiards: Imagine the fatigue of sitting 15 minutes in between shots dressed in a tuxedo while sipping scotch or some hard liquor, then making a complete b@ll@cks of your shot in a matter of 10 seconds. How can you say that doesn't beat you down physically.

    I would have voted for lawn bowls as well but they actually run (and I use that term very loosely) after their bowl.

    -----------------------------------------------

    On a more serious note, from personal experience, if played properly I find these sports particularly energy sapping:
    - soccer/football
    - badminton
    - squash
    - skiing/snowboarding
    - rugby
    - cross country
