How Should We Use the Wrist?

How Should We Use the Wrist?

in this video we’re gonna talk about the
movement of the wrist so actually the movement of the wrist is actually one
big misconception we are not actually bending our wrist to to generate power
but in fact we are using what’s called a rotation of the forearm and this is
called the supination and the pronation so the first key point is we’re not
using the wrist to generate power but we are using the pronation and the
supination movement to do that we need to position our fingers so we can
optimize this pronation and supination movement so let’s first take the back
hand which is the supination movement we want to position our thumb on the grip
and it could be various points on the grip but the main key point is that we
need to use the thumb to push and to do that we don’t want our index finger to
be too high a lot of players have the habit of still having the index finger
high and in that case we are automatically gonna use the wrist for
power and we cannot generate power with the wrist for the pronation movement we want the
middle part of the index finger to be the pressure point on our grip so we
can again use the forearm rotation the pronation here to generate the power the
next key point would be to be relaxed in order to generate power we need to be
relaxed first before we can tighten up our muscles and generate power so the
movement of the wrist is one big misconception we want the wrist to be in
a neutral position and sometimes we want to preload but we don’t want to flex we
don’t want to use the wrist to generate power but the forearm rotation

  1. Another good video ? but we are still waiting for defending video of smash specially on upper body and face. We hope you will post as soon as possible. But nice work keep it up. ??✌❤

  2. excellent badminton is so technical to a great extent that it takes years to perfect

  3. Nice video. For forehand grip, I put index finger high when I smash, I feel not comfortable. And I saw some pro-player (Lee Yong Dae Korea), do not put index finger high when they smash. They just put index finger high when they kill the net. So the question is "we always put index finger high" or "depend on each case" ?

  4. Can you do a video about best string for players

  5. Great video as always ??

  6. We couldn’t ask better than this. Great explanation in description ?

  7. Very informative ?

  8. During clear – that phase when elbow is high and racket is behind back pointing down with supinated forearm:

    1. grip is so loose like you showed in 0:53 (so end of grip doesnt touch end of palm) and then during forearm pronation you squeeze the grip? Or grip is loose the same during the whole swing?
    2. During that phase when forearm is supinated, is the wrist flexed backwards? Because you mentioned that "sometimes we want to preload the wrist"…?

    Thank you

  9. Finally….ive been waiting for decades to see this video! Thumbs Up 🙂

  10. Can't practice for badminton??☹☹.Suffering from chicken pox

  11. Excellent video. Love the details and camera angles. Really great stuff ??

  12. I m having bad wrist pain.. I hope this technique is well enough to change it.. Thanks..

  13. Another good concise explanation. Panhandle grip with wrist flex in overheads is probably the number one beginner error I would think. ??

  14. I think powerful wrist actually is transferring power of forearm to shuttle through the wrist, so the misconception is actually in understanding what it is

  15. Thankyou so much man. Have a great 2019 ??☯️

  16. I've been wrong using my wrist for the whole time

  17. Thank you: I've been waiting for a clear explanation of wrist use and this video provides it.

  18. Good video. But can you clarify the purpose of pre-loading the wrist, because that gives the impression the wrist is generating power of some kind? why pre-load?

  19. Loved the video great explanation of the correct technique and how the wrist comes into that, but was wondering would the same apply for a forehand drive? I always find i have to flex the wrist to generate power when the shuttle is coming close to my body (or is that finger strength used?)

  20. I have an inquiry:
    So sometimes I use my wrist to change the direction of the shuttle from its path that I usually play it.
    I am wondering is the use of the bevel/ flat side, and changing grips the more proper way to change the direction of the shuttle? Rather than using the wrist? Or is there some wrist involvement with the more fine tune motor skills?

  21. It's a very good video, but i would like to give suggestion. How about you divided the correct and incorrect position into two side at our interface, so it makes us easy to know the difference between both of them.

  22. Finally i got you!
    Great work…
    . please tell us more about relaxed grip.
    There are so many misconceptions regarding that

  23. Awesome explaination on this common misconception of generating power! Looking forward to more informative videos to improve our games! Happy 2019 guys and keep the great works coming!

  24. How to smash power

  25. uuh you reveal my secret but i like it tho

  26. the truth is when im yet discover this i oftenly smash my own knee

  27. Pleas Make A Video Double Slice Smash

  28. How to counter the lazy and boring ness to train? Because I don't have coach and the one who teached me is your channel famly ? I just train myself at home and if I want to go jogging tomorrow then, my lazy will ahh ugh! ?

  29. Thank you so much for this video. I had pain in my wrist for a very long time and couldn’t figure out the reason until after I saw this video. ❤️

  30. Could someone please explain to me how to incorporate this forearm rotation in a smash? I am right handed, and when I try to pronate my forearm as the racquet makes contact with the shuttle, my arm will then naturally follow through and end up still on the right side of my body which doesn't feel right?

  31. Great video sir,,,just improved my game too much ,the power is wow…. thanks for correcting the big mistake everyone does in badminton ???????

  32. Another great video, love watching them then trying them out at training. I’d love to see a video on doubles play but split it so there’s a focus on movement and shots when attacking in doubles at the front of the court.

  33. This is a great video…actually explaining the hitting motion accurately. The power is generated through pronation or supination, not the flexing of the wrist! Unfortunately, I still constantly see the misconception being taught. Many coaches make the mistake of simply re-teach whatever is out there, even though they themselves clearly don't flex their wrists to generate the power. It's crazy and sad….

  34. Excellent, I think I'm doing it wrong now haha ?.. Thanks guys, keep them coming please ?✌???

  35. Just a tip for video productions. While I don't know what equipment you have I would recommend shooting these at (at least) 60 fps. Perhaps Full hd (1080p at 60fps). This would make the slowmotionss more fluid as you have more frames to show. If possible then even shoot them at 120fps at the cost of quality (for example 120fps at 720p).

    Regardless, thanks for the excellent tutorials =)!

  36. For a recreational player… What's the best drill to get rid of wrong movements of wrist while playing the shots. I can understand the concept but always find myself playing with wrong movement during the game.

  37. This is the one I've been looking for, thanks. It's great video.

  38. Or Thubing-k Serve

  39. Wow that solves a lot on my game. Thankie

  40. The best video till now explaining the most basic thing in badminton

  41. Thank you so much for this… Actually this is the basic thing to focus on as you described it's really a misconception and yeah it truly is.
    The video on the grip movement on penhandle (for backhand) and forhand will be great.. Please make video on it. ?

  42. Thanks Rasmus. That’s where I’ve been going wrong.

  43. So many badminton coaches don't teach this. Because they aren't high performance coaches

  44. Thankyou badminton famly. You provides a lot of good contents for us as a coach to teach them those who wants to be a better player. Keep the good work! @badmintonfamly ????

  45. It's great and not just the video…
    Good to see that you show the wrong/incorrect way as well so "we" could compare "our" method and adjust "our" failures if needed…
    Thumbs up chaps and many thanks!

  46. What is the product name of your racket ?

  47. Think this important topic deserves a more in depth treatment….backhand sure, but smash still looks like wrist rotation even though I know it’s not supposed to be. Please clarify. Many thanks.

  48. Actually this video opens a whole can of worms coz there are so many shots which we need to see how this applies, eg side wards flat drive, overhead smash, and WHEN it’s appropriate to use mainly wrist power (eg drop to net from below tape)

  49. I have a question. If the power come to pronation and supination, so when we train to strong grip. We actually train pronation ? If I right, I think the exercise that I know just train pronation right ?

  50. You didn't explain forehand as you did with backhand.

  51. This video helped a lot in understanding the racket movements

  52. Its good to give emphasis on pronation and supination, but pronation is combined flexion and supination is followed by extension. It’s ok for the beginner to learn wrist flexion and extension and then add pronation and supination. This is my opinion.

  53. Hi. I often slice the shuttle when smashing as my racket face is not getting down and hitting the sweet spot. So how do i change that..

  54. Great explanation … .being a player myself i know how much of a difference it make and how much injury you avoid. i appreciate this video a lot . i should do one of such videos for my channel .

  55. You people corrected my game you guys are amazing I wish you people get more than 1 million subscribers you are amazing really

  56. So lift uses supination to make the shuttle to back court. I use wrist movement to do that,,,,
    Thx for the video

  57. Thanks sir, nice information

  58. Why would anyone dislike this video

  59. I totally get this now for shots like FH and BH clear… How about for the BH flat drive for example? Is that executed with a slightly bent elbow and supranation of the forearm? Downwards for kill or drive, and upwards for lift?

  60. Can you suggest any exercise to improve this pronation and supination.
    Can you make one video on this?

  61. I am addicted with the sound of hitting birdie with racket

  62. Thank you very much for this!!!

  63. Finally a good instruction about forearm rotation and the explanation behind it. Well done!

  64. Very well explained and demostrated. I have been playing badminton for the last 15 years. First time I lhave earnt how to use the arm correctly. All thanks to you man. I Will work on it.

  65. pronation and supination is more powerful than flexion and extension movements of the wrist. good tip bro 🙂

  66. 0:33 POUWWWAAA !!

    jokes apart great video though

  67. nothing to do with pronate or supernate
    there is no power with pro or super

    flex it

  68. Grateful very, very much for your sharing, Rasmus. I think that is the most important knowledge in badminton, if do not know about that, no one can play better and well

  69. i've been playing badminton wrong my whole life…

  70. Thank you a lot! I've always been wondering why most of my backhand weren't that powerful, now I get it! ??

  71. Good advice. however if you re a novice player, play with the natural grips and wrist movements that suit you for at least
    a year quite regularly then progress to those pronation/supination stuff. pronation/supination are for seasoned players.
     if you start out with those pronation/supination stuff as a beginner you either do not hit any shuttle properly
    or with a meaningful directional way. you would also drop your racket while playing.

  72. Now I can generate even more power in both backhand and forehand shots thank you!!!! ?????

  73. Easy to understand.. let's try

  74. Great explanation, but is very diffucult to put into practice. It will give you more power for sure, but in a club situation you will miss the shot and annoy your partner a lot before it works. That's why so few players do it.

  75. Excellent videos…can you tell the detail about pronation…from a to z?

  76. Wow. Great explanation. I'm going to train this.

  77. Thank you so much for such an informative video. Super ????????

  78. Many coaches teaching wrist power. Smh

  79. Have you played any tournment.upto what level you have played badminton family

  80. bullshit.. not even close

  81. Lovely explanation

  82. use what type of yonex racket ? Pls

  83. How to defense near chest smash, please make video on this topic

  84. Thank you for the concise explanation! All this time, I've been using my wrist in the wrong way… ?

  85. Thank you very much for clearing it up for us.
    I believe Im not the only one who’s watched other tutorials that emphasize on using the “wrist”. Gets so confusing when you watch what they are doing compared to what they say.

  86. When you practice Daily you will win when you not practice Daily you will loose writing by prithvi.k
