    Exercises for Badminton

    Anyone got any info on badminton programmes.

    E.g specific exercise to improve agility, reactions etc.

    Just thought i'd try as i've started again and looking for some help and see what you guys are made off. Many of you seem to know your stuff on all areas. Really good and abit envious/

    Also anyone know best racquets or other equipment needed!!!

    Forearm? Really?

    Work on agility through change of direction drills (cones, ladder, start/stop). Basically you want to try movements that mimic your badminton movements.

    I have a Corey Everson tape that I love to death, Get Hard Arms and shoulders workout.

    In it, she gives an optional section called the forearm workout, and says that it's good for building a strong grip, if you're into badmittion, like she was. (I know that part of the tape by heart !!!)

    maybe your library has it. it's old.

    That's a good read, I love split squats, not sure why they were doing them in a smith machine though

    I thought the exact same thing. Obviously they have access to other, better pieces of equipment.

    That's fine and all if a persons grip is weak and has trouble holding onto the racket.

    Do people really train for badminton? I guess I just see it as a game people play at cookouts, picnics etc. I never met anyone who was serious about it
