Week of Workouts with Control the 'T' Sports (Day 5 - Stability & Balance)

    Apr 30, 2020 7:00:00 PM / by Alex Robertson

    Day 5's episode of Week of Workouts slows things down a little... today's workout focuses on stability and balance. The exercises involved are low-intensity and require a little more concentration and focus!

    Balance and stability relate strongly to core strength (covered in day 3's episode), these attributes come hand in hand and are key in everyday life as well as in the sporting world.

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

    For squash players specifically, having good balance and stability are crucial components of strong movement. If you're lunging in at the front of the court and are feeling a bit wobbly when pushing back out, this may indicate the need for some core strength work.

    The workout routine above can be customized based on your own workout goals and abilities, you can adjust the number of reps and even add weights to suit you and your personal progress.

    It's worth mentioning that this isn't the shortest workout routine as it is important that you focus on getting the exercises done right, as opposed to trying to get through them as fast as possible.

    Focus is key!
