Badminton Smash: How your elbow should set (Part 2)

Badminton Smash: How your elbow should set (Part 2)

Second point of how the elbow should be used now the second point when elbow is back between the forearm, the second part of the arm should, must get close to each other like this why? because its close to each other its banded because its banded together it can be stretched, it can be opened so watch this tight here because its tight I can open it I can generate more power from there to like this like boxer 2 arms close each other so power can come out from here to there like this, like that but because if their, boxers arm is wider like that there is no power can be made and slow it should be tighter same in my experience 5-6 out of 10 players, club players some juniors, they don’t make this tight they already open it now because elbow is already opened they cannot generate any more power because it is already opened watch this tight I can stretch I open it I have to do like this because they open it they hit it there if I make tighter, I can stretch my arm in front of my body which is right so many players hit above their head because they already open it and hit like that watch this please focus on my elbow ok this is right way ok have a look tight because it is tight I can stretch there, there now wrong way because it is already opened I can’t go in front I have to hit like this so much difference if racket is inside my body elbow tight you have all the power, look there now, you can’t do this way hit if you have this one compare right tight tight open so, do not ready like this make your posture inside, small compact because it is compact you can use it in explosive way like this tight and then tight and then bang stretch already stretched nothing to stretch here tight not like this

  1. Coach Lee:

    The "boxing" makes the skill more clear. I really really like your teach.

  2. I am very pleased to know and thank you for posting your comment. Lee

  3. ye definitely much clearer with the boxing picture in mind . Indeed having the position of the Bear on his backfeet ready to attack show the speed difference ^^ with the boxer working with jabs.

  4. Thanks. Very clear explanation. Could you please suggest some remedy – my smashes are good, when the feather is front of me and weaker when I have to go back and hit a high clear. I almost always hit it above my head, not front and can not generate enough power. How to rectify it?

  5. You are right when shuttlecock is above your head you lose almost everything. Vision, power, recovery deception accuricy. You must find way to get behind shuttlecock. If you are late then move your head and upper body backward so shuttlecock can be bit more in front. There must be enough room between your body and the shuttlecock. Question is can you make that room. which means you have mocve quicker. So you need thye right step one. Lee

  6. Thank you very much. I understood.
    I have another question regarding smash. After watching your another video about elbow position, I think I probably push my elbow behind, not straight enough. I often found that after a heavy smash my body turn from right to left (I am right handed). Is that the reason? Also, could you pl tell in which direction should my left foot pointing? Should it be straight towards the direction I am aiming?

  7. 1. Your left food should be point the base you are moving back to not the corner you are aiming to. 2. Turning your body may have two reasons. one is your body turn too much as you mentioned and the other one is your impact point may be side of your body rather then in front of your body. Let me knopw if you have corrected. Lee

  8. Coming Monday I have badminton. I will try and let you know. When I am 'shadowing' I am fine, but while actually hitting the feather I am probably making mistakes. May be I should focus on correctly hitting it, than hitting hard.
    Thank you so much for always being so helpful.

  9. You can hit hard anytime as long as you have the right skill. You are right take the idea of hitting hard away and focus on using the nright skill. Good luck. Lee

  10. Great video. What training exercises would you recommend for stronger wrists?

  11. There are number os training for wrist. Also you have to trai8ning your fingers not only wrist. Please look at finger and wrist training clips on my channel. Lee

  12. Coach, i dun know which video to comment, but i just wan to ask , how thick the grip should i use ?

  13. That is depending on your fingers and hand size. I am thinking of making a clip for it. Not too thick or not too thin is better. Lee
