Mr. know-it-all wannabe.
Just came back from a good session and as usual, I would do a full set of stretching for warming down as well as a few sets of abs crunches and torso twisting just to keep in shape.
I learned this from my gym trainer as the main purpose of this is to strenghten the core and building endurance to the hip flexors that may benefit us when we execute certain shots like the over-the-head shot and backhands.
While I am at it a fellow player from next door came over and said to me without me asking: "Hey, your crunches are for girls and you should be doing Bruce Lee's crunches!! Let me show you the way.......... and there he goes. This was what Bruce Lee used to do"
Just one of those days I guess.

Still, this is better than being told you aren't very good at badminton because your racket isn't made by Yonex and that using Carlton shuttles will cause injury.... Fair enough I'm not great at badminton but I don't think that's the reason! As for shuttles choice I always thought using too slow shuttle would cause injury, not the brand! Fortunately I was wearing a Yonex top, who knows what horrific injury I may have obtained if I hadn't had that protecting me (to be fair the person didn't say that), the whole incident did make me chuckle though.
I'm still not sure if the person had a very dry sense of humour though...

Yes I do workout different part of the core on each different session targeting certain particular area at a time. Sometimes I used lightweight dumb bell to increase the intensity and on some other days I super-set the regime.
By the way you have a positive outlook in life and a good sense of humor though.

Buying so much gatorade..
Arriving early and waiting for your group to show, and watching strangers play.
Challenging those who are stronger than you (necessary to grow, but hard to do.) It's tough to ask ppl to play when you know it's a sure loss.

My personal list of pet peeves:
1) 'Poor sport' players who can't take a defeat graciously .... eg; sulk, throw tantrums, blame the heavens, blame their equipment, blame their parents .....
2) Players who refuse to listen/believe when you tell them the rules and instead call you picky .... eg; serving above the waist.
3) Players who tell you that "they're not playing at the World Championships" when you point out certain basic rules.
4) Players who come to your court 20 minutes before their alloted time, dump their equipment in front of you, gear up and warm-up in an attempt to try to visually 'pressure' you to stop your game just because they have already 'arrived'.
4) Cheapskate players who play on empty courts for free, and then throw you a disgusted/irritated/unhappy look when you arrive at the same court for your game, which you have BOOKED and PAID for.
5) Players who like to pass comments, insult or be sacarstic of other players when they themselves suck at the sport.
6) Players who like to 'stray' into your court during your game.
7) Parents who let their children run wild around the hall, oblivious of the potential dangers !

What happend was, i was at the net and hit a drive down the middle and my opponent double hit the shuttle but managed to return the bird. At that point, the ref called the point and i let myself stand straight. But my apparently my partner missed the whole story and thought that the bird is still in play, so at half court he smashed as hard as he can and hit both the bird and me. Now me and my partner joked around that YY racket is not as strong as my head
BWT we still managed to get into SF with my dizzy head going around

Things I hate about baddy
Also a common behaviour among amateurs (at least some are from my group) were during actual matches, they really played like an amateur especially on the mental aspect (like a tiger when facing weaker players, if they knew the opponents is strong, they behaved like a pussy cat).
Not only that, when it comes to post match tea session, all the pussy cats would become a roaring tiger again. Very vocal in pointing others weaknesses and give free lectures!
