The purpose of this study was to find out the work-outs to improve the muscular endurance of the male badminton team at Saigon University. Eleven healthy male students in the badminton team at Saigon University were chosen to participate in the 15-week pre-season training program. Four evaluation tests were selected to identify the muscular endurance for male badminton, such as the handgrip strength test, standing high jump test, loaded heavy racket in 30 seconds test, and B endurance test. Twelve work-outs were chosen and applied to the training program. The results indicated that there were significant differences between before and after the experiment (after the application of 12 work-outs) in all evaluation tests. In short, 12 work-outs were highly effective to improve muscular endurance for the male badminton team at Saigon University. Future studies should be applied 12 work-outs in the next pre-season badminton training as well as for female badminton athletes at Saigon University.
