Badminton Warm-Up and Cool-Down Exercises

Updated: Oct 4, 2022

How do I prepare myself to get on court and play or train at my best? I warm up.

In this post, I'll be sharing with you the warm-up exercises that I have personally found the most effective in order to get me ready to go on court and play to the absolute best of my ability. But let's not forget that the cool-down is equally as important to promote recovery and reduce injuries, so I'll be sharing these with you as well.


1. Gentle Jog

The first thing I like to do when warming up is a gentle jog, this helps to gradually start increasing your heart rate and gets the blood pumping around your body. Increasing your heart rate is vital before a badminton match or a training session, or any form of exercise for that matter, in order for us to perform at our maximum level as soon as you step on court.
