Here's a Couple of Badminton Stretches for
Your Forearms... They Don't Take Long to
Do and Could Reduce the Chances of Suffering From Tendonitis and Other Similar
Injuries Which Could Mean You Have to Stop Playing
At the bottom of this page, you'll
see a clip which shows you how to do 2 very simple and quick
Badminton stretches for the forearms.
When you consider exactly how much work and how
hard your forearms need to contract throughout the course of just an hours worth of Badminton, it's
surprising to me that more players don't suffer problems in this area.
definitely do these after practice or matches and maybe a couple of times throughout the
week as well.
Stretching the forearms will help to reduce
injury because you are relengthening the muscles to the condition they were in before you began
and shortened muscles can lead to muscular imbalances which place extra stress and tension
on the tendons and ligaments around the wrist and elbow joints, which can lead to injuries like
Tennis and Golfers elbow.
Do the stretches as shown below and hold each
stretch for around 15 - 20 seconds. Take the stretch to the point where you can feel a mild
discomfort (not pain) and hold that position without moving.
The video below doesn't show the stretches
being held that long because I wanted to keep the video short and to the point.
I hope you enjoy the video.
