Hi Guys, I am currently 23 years old now and start to resume to intensive badminton after leaving it idle for the past 6 years. I used to train under a coach for 2 years when I was 12. Hence, I have quite a solid skills in executing most of the strokes. My problem now is that I am too slow. I lost all the footwork skills that I used to have and feel extremely tired most of the time. I believe this is attributed to (1) My Stamina (2) My poor footwork and (3) lack of strength (or explosiveness) in my leg. I am wondering how should I start should start training alone during the day. I am currently on vacation in Malaysia. I don't think it is possible to get a coach for me as most of the coach usually train teenagers. Who do you guys do when you are alone? I am thinking of hiring a court in the early morning where there is no one there so that I can concentrate and practice my footwork. To increase my stamina, I plan to follow the guide recommended by Badminton England which is as follow: • Weeks 1-3. 20 minute continuous jog at an easy pace. Aim: to complete run without stopping • Weeks 4-6 30 minute continuous jog at easy pace. Aim: as above (but 30min) • Weeks 7-9 ~ 25 minute run at moderate pace. Aim: same route as week 4-6 but at a faster pace • Weeks 10-12 35 minute continuous run at similar pace as in weeks 7-9. Is there any other training method (preferably off-court) so that I can train alone? Feel free to correct me if you think my training method is not effective. Cheers.
