Badminton Fitness Training-Team Running


Team Running ok line please ok Captain do 2 set of 10 I ask the players to line up to mentally prepare them for any task that lie ahead. Without their attitude being set this way in advance, I don’t believe that they can perform or achieve the level that I expect from them. When they line up, it has got the meaning that they are now entering a different world. When players are entering the court to begin their training, I expect them to feel the same as a priest entering his church, or a monk entering his temple. ready go 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 I ask the players to count their steps, in this way there will be a rhythm in their running and pace will be set. Players can run faster, longer and able to put more effort in this way than running individually. 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 They are running 2 sets of 10 rounds and there is a 1 round walk in between the 2 sets 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 ok walk ready second set ready go 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 2 1 2 1 Badminton cannot be practised alone The team is same a society, what happens on court happens in life, we are not just hitting the birdie shuttlecock is teaching us how to live CoachingBadminton.com Lee Jae Bok

  1. Hello Lee,

    I would really love to hear your opinion on this:
    I have recently started to go running on days (2-3 times a week) that I don't play badminton. While it has greatly improved my stamina and immediately upped my level of play, I wonder whether it has a negative effect on my explosiveness and quickness on court. I came across players and coaches who discourage me from running, stating that it shifts your composition of muscle fibres towards more of typ I (slow twitching fibres).

  2. Instead they rely more on footwork drills to build up stamina. Also, they put more emphasis on weight training as it stimulates your type II (fast twitching muscle fibres). It all makes a lot sense to me, as I believe that speed and explosive movements are much more important than good stamina in badminton.
    How did you train back in your active career and what do you encourage your students to do?

    Much love and greetings
    Oliver

  3. I disagree with the idea. You should run and get fit. Badminton players need both, speed and expolosive power as well as andurence. Also I believe that running will make you sharper, lighter and quicker. You should run two-three times a week minium. Lee
