In the Uk, the badminton season is now over as its summer time but will be starting up in 6 weeks or so time. Am curious to see what if any training players have been doing in this off season. Badminton for me is a sport, a competitive sport. I enjoy playing and have fun but I play seriously. I play in leagues over the season and compete in some competitions also. Ive been doing a lot of cardio the past few months from Richard Gibneys Badminton life program. Its very good & I can def see a good change in my fitness. Am also recently decided to build a bit of strength and muscle mass as am a fairly skinny guy so since a week ago, Ive started lifting heavy weights for my arms, chest and legs and also doing sit ups with the help of http://randomabs.com/today/. With regards to playing, Ive been playin about 1/2 times a week with good players. Played a lot of singles with a player who I would say was better than me but we are more even now. This has helped to get me fit also and helped me improve my game as he is hard to read and has some deceptive shots. I feel I have improved over the summer as I went to a summer Competition and got runner up in the division in which 6 months ago we didnt win 1 match!! Will play a division up next time I plan now on adding a bit of speed by skipping etc to make me faster Once again my question is what are you doing if anything at all lol?
