Warm-Up for Squash

Before performing any exercise, it is important to prepare the body by performing an appropriate warm-up. Warming up prepares the body for the upcoming activities and can help decrease the risk of injury. A warm-up for squash should be done before every exercise session - whether it be for competition games, on court practice or gym workouts.

Example Squash Warm-Up

A squash game can involve an extended period of explosive jumping and rapid change of direction. To get the body prepared for such activities, a thorough warm-up is required. The warm-up should focus on the specific actions and muscle groups that will be involved in the activity, and gradually move from low intensity to high intensity.

Here is an example of what can be done, but the specifics can be adjusted to suit the age and level of the players, and constraints such as limited space, time availability, and the environmental conditions.
