Heart Health – your heart health relies on cardio exercises. This means increasing your heart rate to improve blood flow throughout your body. Since badminton is a sport where there are periods of rest followed by active swinging and movement, the sport can be considered one of the finer interval training elements. Those who exercise and play sports regularly tend to experience lower cholesterol levels as well as lower risks for cardiac disease.
Mobility – Mobility is a problem that many of us experience trouble with as we age. Keeping active throughout your life can help to prevent these problems in mobility. Badminton is an active sport that will keep you moving throughout the matches and thus, improving your mobility each time you play. Keeping mobile is important as it keeps your joints lubricated, preventing arthritis and similar afflictions from developing.
Flexibility and muscle strength– flexibility and mobility go hand in hand. The more you move, the more flexible you become, especially in a sport like badminton where swinging and reaching are constants. In addition to improving flexibility, players also gain muscle strength and endurance. Over time, muscles build up and gain endurance, allowing you to play better and for longer.
