Mikkel Mikkelsen - It’s Never Too Late (Guest Episode)

Mikkel Mikkelsen - It’s Never Too Late (Guest Episode)

October 26, 2022

After a week with no podcast episode I'm back with the first guest episode in a long time!

It's Danish mixed doubles player and my roommate at French Open Mikkel Mikkelsen.

You might not know Mikkel so well, but his story is quite inspiring as he has been through some crazy stuff before finally being accepted as a national team player at the age of 29!

I'm happy to share a bit of his story with you guys here - even if I actually felt a little rusty doing this kind of episode. I enjoyed it though, so I hope you guys do too.

If you enjoy what you hear and want this type of content to keep coming, please consider giving just a tiny bit of support on patreon.com/vittinghus. You will even get some cool benefits from doing so!

Thanks so much for listening everyone!

How To Cope With Injuries & More

How To Cope With Injuries & More

October 12, 2022

Inspired by one of my amazing patrons, today's episode is focused around my experience of how to best cope with injuries.

I've had my share of injuries and very unfortunate times throughout my career, so there is enough to talk about!

If you also want to be able to ask questions for the podcast, please sign up at www.patreon.com/vittinghus to support my work and help my badminton career.

I also answer a question about how to stay calm on court when your plan is not working out and a question about if I'm ever up for coaching just days or weeks abroad.

Of course I also give an update on the league match from the weekend and a short weekly training update, so this epsiode is packed with information :-)

Hope you enjoy it!

Giveaway, Job News & More!

October 6, 2022

Today's episode offers an update on my knee/hamstring issue which I talked about last week. I go a little bit into how I'm trying to balance training, rest and accepting some pain.

I'm also breaking some news on a new job I've started in already. But don't worry guys, I'm still a professional badminton player! :-)

I've just found a good little side kick to add a bit of extra income and perhaps pave a way into a future bigger role with the company.

Only 10 mins today - been a bit busy these days, which is also why the pod is a day late, but I've already got a good idea about next weeks episode (thanks to one of my amazing patrons), so next week will be a bit longer again and take in a few questions from my patrons.

Thanks for listening everyone - and remember to join my patreon community to be in with a chance of winning signed shirts and even a brand new racket!

Weekly Update, Video Analysis & More…

Weekly Update, Video Analysis & More…

September 21, 2022

Here's this weeks podcast which offers a weekly update from training, a look ahead to my second league match of the season and a couple of patron-questions.

I'll answer questions about how much video analysis is being used by me (and other pros) in the game, what my one rep max is in squat (and talk a bit more about my weights programme) and what I think of livedraws being done by hand as a possible event for BWF to look into.

In this episode I also mention a company called Clutch who uses AI to do video analysis. This is not sponsored or anything, but I still urge you to go check them out on instagram. Their handle is @theclutchapp. Very interesting company with great potential to grow in my opinion.
