Abstract

Background : Badminton requires a specific physical conditioning in terms of motor and action controls;

coordinative variables such as reaction time, foot stepping and static or dynamic balances, which are essential

motor demands in this sport. Therefore, badminton players need enough core strength and a high level of

dynamic balance during the rapid postural movements around the court.

Objectives : To study the effect of core strengthening and to study the effect of conditioning program on

badminton beginners

Methodology : 25 players, aged between 12-19 years were given core strengthening and conditioning

protocol for 4 weeks. Players were assessed at 0, 2nd and 4th week through 60 degree curl up test and

modified Sorensen test.

Results : statistically significant difference was seen in pre and post treatment values of the 2 tests. In 60

degree curl up test at 0 week p=, 2nd week p= and 4th week p= and in modified Sorensen test at 0 week p=,

2nd week p= and 4th week p=

Conclusion : players showed improvement in their core strength after 4 weeks of core training.
