It's wise to build strength and stretch out to avoid injuries in squash. Learn how to prevent injury in squash with training lessons from a squash instructor in this free video.
Okay, once again, I want to go over some things about fitness training. So in squash, since the game is a series of sprints and lunges, and twists and turns, and you're jumping, you're doing all types of explosive moves, it really is wise if you work on some things that build strength so you can prevent injuries. So one of the things that I want you to focus on, for example, if I have to hit a high ball, I might have to leap up, I might have to explode to a ball. So one of the things you want are real strong legs. So one of the things that will really help build your legs is just doing basic squats. So you'll just put your arms out like this or you can put the racket up, and just do your squats. And you can hold it and come back up. Now if you're somewhat new at working out, you can keep your heel down when you squat, just like that and come back up. And if you're a little, if you've been working this a little bit, you can make it a little harder and you raise your heels and do it from the balls of your feet just like that. So you can see, I've got the racket in my hand but you don't have to do it with the racket if you're just at home. Just do it this way. But this is a great exercise. And if you get real advanced, you can do it with one foot. But that's pretty tough to do. But, but just do it with both feet, and you'll really be amazed at how quickly your game really improves because the powers of the legs.
