    Have you ever been so physically exhausted that you felt like vomiting and fainting? I experienced that today when I was playing singles against my friend. I didn't start the game well, I was down about 15-6. I pulled myself together and started playing a bit smarter and I finally beat him. At the end I felt so sick that I just dropped to the ground.

    How about you?

    yes and my coach famously says :

    " you have 6 minutes to be sick then come back"

    I think the best thing to prevent this is by eating correctly before playing.

    -Eat 2-3 hours before.

    - Drink water before

    -Bring water and a snack or banana a long with you so you renew your minerals that you are loosing.

    - Bring a sugary drink or something to keep you going.

    - JR said that he puts salt in his water and drinks it to replenish the minerals which i thought was fantastic.

    We all have personal ones aswell,

    I for one cannot stand oily foods before playing even crisps :D.

    Hope this helps you :D

    Do eat or try to eat before..nothing too heavy ..we are all different and what is good for some people may not be good for you..i tend to have a small portion of pasta and some fruit..
    I take some water as well as an isotonic drink...sip of both after each game..
    I play 2hr singles sessions..with a family member who is very well matched with me..so its a great workout..
    Did feel iffy the other day after a weekend of way too much alcohol..
    Thats expected i suppose...

    and have something in your stomach.
    don't play with empty stomach.
    like what others saying bring power bar or Gatorade.

    :D I would rather push myself to extremes , and think after I did it :D. Than give up and be disappointed at the end and think I could have done better :D.

    The pride you get is amazing :D , after you finally get up ofcourse :D

    I don't get it nowadays, but when i first started playing, my right arm used to be so sore after badminton classes that it shook and was difficult to hold things for about half an hour afterwards. Haha, that shows how weak my arms were :p

    But occasionally when i really exert myself, i become dizzy and a little disorientated, especially when i keep looking up at the birdie only to be confronted by the bright glare of the sports hall lights which make me feel even worse.

    most likely from overheating and dehydration. Being exhausted or tired or overworked is not what makes you sick. Unless you have recently eaten and the food wants to come back up.

    Not from badminton, but from a cycling competition. It sucks, I did everything right, but I guess it's how hard you exert yourself and in how long a period of time. But the fainting could be due to low blood pressure/sugar and the vomiting as a result of the excessive movements which I guess push the stomach fluids in the other direction, of course there are a number of valid reasons. Shouldn't be too bad though, you'll get used to the exercise.

    hey scott, good job on beating your friend there. I've had this problem because i was not fit before and i didnt eat right. Avoid junk food as much as possible and only eat junk food on occasions like a party or something cause its very bad and it affects your health and game play. Eating right is the first step. Second is conditioning. Building up stamina such as doing shadows on the court will build up both ur endurance plus ur rhythem on court. Going out for daily jogs would also be nice and make sure to warm up and stretch everytime before you play. Stretching everyday also improves your health. Hope this helps.

    I would strongly recommend you avoid pancakes for breakfast, followed by lots of blue gatorade.

    once you start a regime of aerobic training...your badminton life will be changed completely

    (minimum: 3 times a week...at least 35 minutes each session...gradually increase the intensity)

    Does skipping count as aerobic training? (I just got a new digital jump rope :))

    skipping is one of the most demanding aerobic training!!! it's difficult to skip for 35min non-stop!

    cross trianing is the best eg jogging, skipping, swiming, cycling...each time one kind of sport so as to minimize injury

    the best starting is slow jogging, it's convinent and you can do it eveerywhere, also you can manipulate the speed...the initial goal is keep moving non-stop for 35 mins...the goal is eventually, we can run at 75-80% of max heart-rate non-stop

    Also minerals help you keep water "inside", so that you sweat and dihydrate less
