Badminton takes its name from Badminton House - home of the Duke of Beaufort in the English county of Gloucestershire. Though the estate is now better known for horse trials and hunting, it is credited as the formal birthplace of the racquet sport. But badminton's roots date back thousands of years. Sports played with a shuttlecock and racquets probably developed in ancient Greece around 2000 years ago but are also mentioned in India and China. In England a children's game known as "battledore and shuttlecock" in which players used a paddle - a battledore - to keep a small feathered cork - a shuttlecock - in the air as long as possible - was popular from medieval times. In the 17th century, Battledore or Jeu de Volant was an upper class pastime in many European countries. ...read more.


Recovery- Rest is required in order for the body to recover from the training and to allow adaptation to take place. The longer and more intense the activity, the longer the rest needed. Reversibility- Recovery sessions may not necessarily mean complete rest. Periods of lower intensity activity will allow the body to adapt without increasing the stress placed on it. These periods are excellent opportunities for work on technique and tactics. Overload- Overload is when the body is worked more than usual to reach the extra workload must meet the maximum of your training. My Personal Exercise Program My aim by the end of my six week training programme is to improve the strength in my arms as well as my general fitness particularly my cardiovascular fitness. This is due to the fact that I play badminton and I feel it would benefit me if I was fitter and my arms were more muscular to enable me to get more power in my shots.

I know this because I am now able to run on the treadmill on level 13 for 25 minutes. I can also Bench press 50 kilograms. I can also do two sets of 30 kg. I have noticed that my arms and legs are now more tones and I can run for longer when playing football and badminton. Rather than like before only being able to last 3/4 of the game. However I problem that I found as I was nearing the end of my six week programme was that it got a bit boring as it was getting far too repetitive. I possibly could have made it more enjoyable by doing a wider range of activities or asking others to join me in order to make it more fun. However I do feel the my six week programme has been a success. ...read more.
