What Can This Course Do For Me?
We all know that we should spend more time on our fitness, but there is a difference between training harder and training smarter. This course will help you to TRAIN SMARTER and you’ll end up getting more results out of your efforts.
You Will Have More Energy
Have you ever felt especially sluggish on court? Do you find that you start to fade towards the end of a match? This course will help you to develop badminton specific fitness so you can fight through those tough rallies, and help you to do it for all three games.
Perform At A Higher Level
There are so many things within this course that will help you to perform at a higher level, from an improved warm up, to increasing your fitness, explosiveness and speed. If you’re looking to compete and want to see some awesome results we have what you need.
Stop Getting Hurt So Easily
Injuries are the easiest way to prevent progress and to prevent fun. Sitting on the side of the court watching your friends play isn’t nearly as fun as being on the court there with them. Badminton players have a number of common injuries that are preventable if you do a few simple exercises targeting those trouble spots. This is especially important for older players when your body isn’t quite as tough as it used to be.
Get Results Faster
I’m sure you don’t need to be convinced about the importance and the benefits of improving your fitness. Everyone knows that the health of their body is the most important thing in their life, as well as their sport. However, by increasing your knowledge around training you can get results faster by training more effectively.
What’s In The Course?
The course has more than 70 videos, and over 2 hours of exercise videos geared towards badminton players with in depth explanations. Here are all of the sections included in this course:
Movement Preparation – The Modern Warm Up
Sport is dynamic, and therefore the way the we warm up should be dynamic as well. Something like jogging helps us to increase our heart rate and get our blood flowing, but it doesn’t address the fact that badminton is a multi-directional sport. Also, while stretching is important, doing basic static stretches before we play doesn’t really have much relevance to badminton which is why we have a variety of dynamic stretches for you. Finally, in badminton we need to prepare our nervous system for fast and complex movement with more exercises to prepare you to move in a dynamic way.
Plyometrics – Develop Explosiveness
Our muscles are basically like springs and in order to generate power from our muscles we first need to load them in order to prepare for explosive movements. This sections provides us with drills that will teach our muscles to load and explode. The key things we’ll be training our muscles for here are explosiveness, reactivity and dynamic stability. Explosiveness for example helps us with power shots like jump smashes. An example of the benefits of improved reactivity is the ability to react quickly to our opponents attacking shots. Finally an example of the benefits of dynamic stability is our ability to maintain our balance in challenging positions.
Movement Skills – For Court Specific Movement
As badminton players we spend a huge amount of time working on our racquet skills. Having the ability to hit good shots is incredibly important, but we also need to pay attention to our ability to move on the badminton court. Just playing badminton isn’t enough either, we need to have a specific focus on improving our ability to move our bodies. By becoming a better mover overall, you’ll become a better badminton player too.
Strength – Increase Power And Stability
Strength is one of the most misunderstand areas of training for badminton. When we talk about strength training most people think of muscle bound strong men. This is not the type of strength training that we want to use for badminton. In this program we want to train the body as a system, a whole functioning unit, and not as a bicep, or a forearm. In sports all of these muscles are designed to work together, so the exercises we have put together are designed to help improve your strength for badminton. The other big benefit of being strong is in preventing injuries, and enabling you to train longer and harder without getting hurt. Remember, strong does NOT mean big.
Energy Systems – Last Longer, With More Intensity
Energy system is a more scientific term for cardio. However, for a sport like badminton we can’t just rely on aerobic fitness. We have a few different systems we need to train that allow us to play for a long time, but also that allow us to play at high intensities from one rally to the next. With badminton’s recent switch to 21 points the sport is more of a sprint than ever, and focusing on old school fitness methods is not the way to go.
Injury Prevention – Improving The Weakest Links
Sustaining an injury is one of the sure fire ways to limit your progress in badminton, and it’s also no fun at all! This is not the most glamourous section of the program, but we will make you more resistant to injuries so that you can train harder, and have more fun on the badminton court instead of sitting on the sidelines.
Regeneration – Live To Fight Another Day
You don’t improve your body just by working hard, you improve your body during RECOVERY after training. When you are working your muscles you are actually breaking down your muscles. The exercises in this section help your body to speed up regeneration so that you can recover faster, and improve faster. Do you hate having sore muscles after work outs? Well this will help make things a little less painful for you
Who Is Richard Gibney?
Very few trainers respect badminton, or understand badminton like Richard does. Oftentimes trainers will get you to lift heavy weights, or they’ll just tell you to run lots for fitness. They don’t get how complicated and difficult this game is. Richard started playing badminton in the early 90′s and played competitively in Canada when he was a junior for several years. He has also been training competitive badminton players for over 10 years. You might be wondering if any of these players are actually any good. Well they are. Richard has worked with a number of champions over the years including numerous national champions. In fact last year the number one and number two Canadian players worked with Richard.
