#6: Keep your BALANCE …

SH_1102What will make you faster and increase your winners instantly?

What is the one thing that keeps your concentration focused and keeps your opponent from attacking? What do the best squash players possess?

It’s all in one unique way of playing.


Start playing squash by keeping your BALANCE at all times.

Run balanced! Never run into walls! Try to feel your weight balanced under each step and when you slow to strike, keep your balance!

Strike the ball from the beginning of your stroke to the end of your stroke without losing your balance!

SH_1098Hover on the T in a crouched balanced position. From here on in focus on how well you’re able to stay balanced throughout rallies.

Note where and when your balance is lost. Is it on drops? Is it on serve returns? Or is it in the back corners? When you twist do you lose your balance?

Note every spot on the court you seem to lose your balance and start remedying each one.

Before you know it, you’ll increase your speed and shooting ability just because you paid attention to how well you’re able to stay BALANCED.
