Investigation of the effect of acute badminton training on selected biomotoric parameters

Keywords: badminton, training, biomotoric parameters, blazepod


Background and Study Aim. One of the fastest racquet sports in the world, badminton is defined as a versatile, explosive sprint sport that requires players to perform intense rhythmic movements with its highly competitive and dynamic feature. The aim of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of 4-week badminton training on some selected biomotoric features in young individuals engaged in recreational sports. Material and Methods. Twenty seven students of sports sciences voluntarily participated in the study (age = 18,85 ± 0,98 years). A total of 4 weeks of training was given for 2 hours a day specific to badminton sport. We examined the effects of pre-post training development of biomotoric properties, flexibility, reaction, vertical jump, balance and agility parameters on performance. Statistical analyzes of the data obtained as a result of the research were obtained using the IBM SPSS 23.0 package program. Results. The differences before and after badminton training, a statistically significant difference was found between pretest and posttest measurements of flexibility (5.53%), reaction (24.66%), vertical jump (8.93%), and agility (2.54%) tests (p<0.05). In the balance test, although there was a mathematical difference of 17.84%, this difference was not statistically significant (p>0.05). Finally, 4-week training improves flexibility, reaction, vertical jump and agility performances in a positive and meaningful way (p<0.05). Conclusions. The findings showed that the training method specific to badminton sport improved the flexibility, reaction, vertical jump and agility performances of individuals compared to pre-training. Specifically, these results revealed that the training-performance relationship clearly affects each other positively. In future studies, it can be predicted that more multidisciplinary training methods will be directed to research by making macro plans.
