that’s not bad after three years.
A low intermediate player has bad footwork. That can ’cause’ a big lack of power in a game.
You said you can do 30 pushups. 30 pushups is good.
According to https://www.topendsports.com/testing/tests/home-pushup.htm The above average 30-39 year old man can do 25-33 pushups.
You have very strange ideas if you think the average person can do way more than that. You also have very old fashioned ideas about how to build or measure strength.
well, besides that that’s above average for e.g. 30-39 year olds.
There’s been times when i’ve been lifting some weight that is way above average, and lacked power, and it was because of hitting technique.
There was a time when I was lifting a lot of weight and struggled to clear it well. And a time when with good hitting technique I struggled to keep it in the court!
And that’s even aside from the footwork to get to the right place.
Well that excuse isn’t going to work when the best badminton players in the world are asian.including the top smashers as well as many of the best olympic weightlifters. And lots of things involving speed.
The strongest olympic weightlifters in the world are from China.
And women can play badminton.. Women with very low levels of muscle. So that should tell you that it’s ridiculous to blame strength when pushups indicate you are above average strength for 30-39 year old men.
You say probably, so you haven’t even tried!
There are some female athletes that can’t do a pull up. And in sports that require more strength than badminton.
And there are people that can do pullups but don’t hit with power.
I’ve done weighted pullups before, but when i’ve hit with bad technique, or had poor footwork getting to the shuttle, i’ve lacked power..
And some people have good power and can’t do much of a squat(even without a bar, just a plain bodyweight squat)
Maybe you can figure out some solutions. How to get more consistent coaching while moving around a lot.
e.g. Is there any regularity to the movements..
If you have a bunch of coaches on your phone and you know which ones use which leisure centres, then you could text them and say “hey i’m near this leisure centre today or later this week, are you available”.
