Not really Injury, per se


This is not really about an injury, but about a very interesting physiology fact that I recently discovered that pertains to badminton, in a way.

The palmaris longus is a muscle on the inner forearm that is involved in wrist flexion and pronation. It is said that up to 25% of people don’t have this muscle. I wonder how much this relates to how hard someone can hit a shuttle cock?
