Badminton injuries. 

I've definitely had my fair share from hip surgery, cortisone injections in my hip, ankle, feet and toe. Back injuries. Shoulder injuries. Elbow. Neck. Knee. Quadricep. Hamstring. Calf. Rotator cuff. You name it - I've probably had it in some way, shape or form.

Badminton is quite an unforgiving sport for the body. There's lots of jumping, leaping and bounding, plus a lot of stop-start movements which are heavy on the joints and muscles. Sprains, slips, strains and tears are all common badminton injuries. And there's the fact that it is one-side dominant.

That's why we brought Justin on for Episode 9 of The Badminton Podcast.

He is an accredited exercise physiologist, personal trainer, and anavid badminton player. He is extremely passionate about health and fitness, and his vision is to create a future where all people in society maintain a healthy lifestyle in the absence of injury. 

He has been researching strength training and injury prevention for badminton players and has become an expert in this area.

In this episode, Justin uses literature and his background in sports science to explain the importance of strength training in the prevention of the most common badminton injuries, that’s applicable to badminton players of all levels. He runs through several different exercises that you can start doing today, and the next steps to get more information as you progress forwards.

Have a listen and start using these tips in your exercise and gym program to get the most out of your body!
