Contributorgold Christina W Hey Jez, me again...hope you're not sick of hearing from me...I had a fantastic session today with my coach. Just wanted to let you know one of the drills/games we played today. It totally forces you to keep your eye on the ball and your opponent and to get back to the T.

The drill is called Attack and Defend. One person is the Attacker throughout the game and the other is Defender. The Attacker can only straight or cross court drive and straight or cross court lob. The Defender's only shots are boasts and drops. It takes a few hits to get the hang of it, but boy does it ever get you moving.

We also did the boast drive drill which I love, but I think the Attack and Defend game is my new favourite. What drills have you been using lately?

http://squashskills.com/blog/1554-11-points-on-fitness-q-a-lj-anjema Thought this might be of interest. No way am I sick of squash geekery! Sounds a good game. Always on the look out for new stuff. I have another new training partner. Maggie. She plays pretty good and hits the ball hard and straight so no chance of just hitting her off the court. The ball comes back just as fast!! Next training sessions are Monday and Wednesday. Too bad I gotta go to work! I thought of you today as I was doing Dan's Killer Circuit. You should try it! You'll see I had to modify it a bit.

Great tips Jez! My coach is always trying to get me to focus on a lot of these tips: #1 - Smooth movement: Ray tells me to never run to the ball. He tells me I have all time in the world...I can go and have a cup ...

Yeah the teams play against other clubs in the west of scotland. Think there about 6/7 divisions so I'm happy to go into div 3.. Like you I play at 3 but there are only 5 on each of our teams. I belong to 2 squash cl...

Awesome, I love to talk squash as much as I love to play! Super cool that you're on a team. Is this a travelling league? Where you meet with other clubs weekly? Or are these teams within your own club. either way, co...

Hey again, I completely agree with you...I don't play to "end" the game either. Squash is not only a physical game but largely a mental game too. I change my game according to my opponent as well. When I play with so...

Jez B Squash Fanatics Tribe

When you say "play your game" do you mean play your same game against every opponent? Sometimes my game plans really vary according to who I'm playing, if I know their game, if not then its more about feeling the opp...

It's funny you should ask about women players. I've just fixed up to play the very lovely Maggie at our club. She plays very well. Our head to head stands at 1-1 so next weeks game is important. She actually hits the...

Wow you're soooo lucky! I have a pal who's keen to train an we've been doing drills and condition games for a month or so now each week. It's awesome. The only trouble is he's about half my age and is happy to keep g...

Hey Jez, I'm super fortunate to have met a super keen and amazing retired squash/tennis/badminton coach at my club. He has taken me under his wing to train along with about 5 other players at the club. I meet with hi...

Contributorgold Jez B Tough game today. Played a guy who usually beats me, but I'm at a stage now where I know his game and also know I can beat him just need to string the right shots together. Concentration is the biggest problem I think.
