    Lift some weights?

    However badminton stroke is more about speed and technique than strength.

    Go to http://badminton-coach.co.uk/ and look at the "armchair exercises". They are fantastic. Pay attention to the one with the brick and the one with the racket cover.

    Ask your coach, s/he would know you best.

    You could also practice doing figure 8's with your wrist by using a 500ml bottle of pop.

    You should also consider building upper body strength. Start off by doing press-ups slowly, 3 count down, 3 count up. Get to 3 sets of 10.

    Once you can do this, try press ups with a clap in the middle. When you can power up from each press up and clap your hands you've significantly improved your arm strength.

    Hi,

    For the past three years I have made push-ups, row, curl, bench-press,.... It helps me to gain some strength but not that much of explosiveness. Since two months I have used heavy rackets to warm up.

    Squash racket can make the fit I suppose but some badminton racquets loaded down on purpose exist as well. Weight should be better-balanced than a squash one (several models exist 140g/150g/170g/190g/....)

    Beware that, at least the beginning, you shouldn't play with it but only do some "shadow" motions e.g. clear & rush motions (like shadow for footwork) otherwise you might injure yourself.

    After only one month my arm speed has increased and when I take my usual racquet I feel like I have a feather in the hand. It helps me a lot for flat game and defence as well as my smash power.

    Benoit

    I will just add to what Benoit said: be careful with your use of heavy rackets. I personally think they are fantastic, but I am also aware that you should be very careful to begin with. Good suggestion though.
