Keywords:badminton, core, conditioning, players, strength
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
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.
