Complete Badminton Training by Zhao Jianhua & Xiao Jie

Zhao Jianhua & Xiao Jie Badminton Training - Episode 1 (Mandarin with Chinese & English Subtitles)
Hosted by Former Badminton World Champion Zhao Jianhua & Badminton Coach Xiao Jie

Backcourt Badminton High Position Shot

Guest Zhang Yang's Weakness:
When opponent hits a clear shot to the corner backcourt (Position A), Yang has a tendency of hitting the shuttle at a low position. Coach Xiao Jie points out that there were opportunities for Yang to hit the shuttle at a high position. Hitting the shuttle at a high position would enable Yang to make offensive shots such as smashes or drops.

Coach Xiao Jie's Solution:
Coach Xiao Jie suggests improving Yang's footwork by reducing the number of steps required to reach the corner backcourt. Before, Yang was turning toward the corner and taking two steps to reach the shuttle. That was time consuming and left him with no choice but to hit the shuttle at a low point. Xiao Jie instructs him to not make the turn, but rather, take a small side step toward the rear corner and then jumping to intercept the shuttle.

Generating Power on a Frontcourt Backhand Shot

Guest Zhang Yang's Weakness:
On a frontcourt backhand shot (Position B), Yang lacks the technique for generating power. The shuttle travels slowly and does not reach far enough into the opponent's backcourt.

Coach Xiao Jie's Solution:
Yang is not holding the racket correctly, therefore, trying to generate power from his arm and wrist. Coach Xiao Jie corrects the way Yang grips the racket and shows him that power should be generated from the fingers and a small twist or supination of the forearm. The motion is analogous to turning a faucet on (for a right hander). To practice the motion and loosen up the wrists, Xiao Jie suggests drawing figure 8s with a large bottle.

yogesh: do a lot of cardio. the reason why your stamina is down is because your heart rate pumps really fast without constant excersising.

Try running at a good pace without stopping. No need to burn yourself out. the longer you do it, the better heart rate you will have. After many days of consistence of running at a good pace without tiring yourself out, you will realize how little pain you feel after playing badminton, or little soreness from your calves.

it is all consistency with your cardio and exercise.
