Squash Stretches & Training Exercises : Squash Leg Stretches


O.k, since the legs are really the most important
part of the squash, it’s best to before you play and after you play, if you can, do some
stretching. So, what I like to do is before I play a match, I’ll usually just do some
light jumping of rope or some just sprinting around the court slowly, just to get warmed
up, in addition to obviously hitting the ball, or maybe take a steam or a hot shower. So,
then we are kind of warm before we play. Now, if it’s real hot outside, you’re probably
already warmed up. So, what I want you to think about is, you want to start stretching,
so you can start with your legs apart, and just do a real basic stretch. And, you want
to just come down as low as you can, like this, touch your palms if you can, and your
goal is to eventually try to touch your head. I’m not that close to that yet, but just hold
it like that and you’ll feel a good stretch in the back of your legs, and your hamstrings,
and in your back. And, then just come on up. So that’s one great stretch that you can do,
the other one is legs together, and just go down and just try to touch your head to your
knees. Obviously, I’m not close yet, but you know, if you can do this, and just hold it
for a little bit, so hold it for let’s say, a count of ten. And, if you do that, you’ll
notice that you’ll be a little more warmed up and every time you do this, you’ll get
closer and closer. So, there’s a lot of other things you can do, just like a quad stretch
is always good. So, you just lift up your foot, and hold it like that. And, do it with
the other one. So, this also works on your balance and it’s a real basic, good stretch,
and so you do this, you’ll be ready to play.
