STUDY REGARDING THE COMPLEXITY OF PHYSICAL TRAINING IN BADMINTON
Badminton is a complex sport, and in order to have very good results, an athlete must be well prepared, physically and technically. A badminton player must have excellent moves in order to reach a higher level of performance. Badminton is a very fast sport, where the shuttlecock is being hit once every 5 seconds or less, meaning that the player has about 2-3 seconds to get a quick start, move and get a good position for the stroke, and perform it. At the same time, he has about one second to get back to the middle of the court in the initial position, and get ready for the next stroke. The duration of a badminton game varies between 30 and 90 minutes, with a very short cool-down period. The physical training of the badminton players is essential during competitions, and it can help improve the performances. But in order to be a complex badminton player, an athlete needs, besides a good physical training, a good technical training, and not in the least, the right tactical approach.
