    Apr 28, 2020 7:00:00 PM / by Alex Robertson

    Here it is, 'Week of Workouts' day 3! Today's video focuses on an area that's extremely important for squash players, athletes, and indeed everybody in everyday life, core strength!

    (The video is in real time, however, using YouTube's settings you can speed it up if you need to)

    This core strength routine consists of simple core strengthening exercises which require no equipment including plank, mountain climbers, leg raises, scissor kicks, and more.

    If you're a squash player you'll know the importance of core strength in the sport, it's one of the key elements of strong movement and lunging. It's also important to note that having a strong core is crucial in everyday life routines such as heavy lifting and even just standing up!

    This simple routine only takes 10 minutes and you should definitely feel the burn afterwards!

    As mentioned in previous day's workouts, some may find this workout either a little too easy or a little too difficult so it's important to note that you can adjust the duration of the exercises or rest time to suit your own personal goals.
