Movement and strokes in squash are inherently connected. Learn about ball and movement connections in squash with this free video on squash drills.
Ok. In this segment I want you to really think about how your movement and your stroke are intimately connected. So if the ball is over there and I don't move properly, I can't get a good shot at it. But if the ball is over there and I move, I can hit a nice shot every time. So, the idea here is to really think about your movement and your ball striking not as two separate items, but as one item. If you can do that, you'll notice the quality of your shot will improve a lot. That's why doing these movement drills; the whole purpose of them is to set you up so you can hit the ball properly. So if I'm going to hit a ball in the front court, see I move, I move and I can hit the ball pretty well. If I don't move to it, if I'm in bad position, I'm going to be hitting weak shots, I'm going to be hitting you know, very poor shots, or you know, losing the point out right. So the idea here is the movement and the ball striking are totally connected. Because squash is a game of movement. So I want you to really think about how all this works. So you want to learn to watch the ball; you want to learn how to move and get in good position so you can take a nice full stroke. If you're hitting the ball too close to the body or you're always having to lunge, all your shots are going to be pretty weak. So really focus when you do these movement drills. If you use your imagination; if you really think about hitting the ball, in your mind, and then you'll see your results improve quickly.
