Ever feel lazy? Or your body can’t move before an important match, training session or any other work out session? Especially with the new 21 points or 11 points scoring system in most badminton tournaments out there, you have to be extra ready when you entered the court. One can’t afford to play themselves into game when your opponent has a big lead over you.
Here’s something you can try to overcome those obstacles and also bring your game and fitness to the next level by doing a routine of dynamic warm up exercises. Dynamic warm up, started gaining its’ popularity roughly around 10 years ago and it’s being practiced by the top athletes in the world. Not to mention even Lee Chong Wei and Lin Dan do practiced it on a regular basis, as you can see on various youtube video clips.
Dynamic warm up is practically a form of exercise that activates your muscles you will use during your game, training or any other workouts.

- Raising up your knees and twisting them inwards while going forward and spreading them outwards while going backwards.
- Knee Raises.
- Thigh stretching kick back.
