Circuit training for squash beginners

Posted by on 2 September 2011 | 0 Comments

Squash circuit training is a great way for squash beginners to develop their skills, and to quickly increase their fitness levels!

Circuit training involves setting up a number of “stations”, each comprising a different activity. The squash player moves through the different stations, so a good range of activities are completed. This can also be done in a group, with a different player at each station.

Each station should have a duration of 60 seconds. This can be increased to 2 minutes as proficiency and fitness levels rise.
