Serious Squash Updates

It's been a pretty busy fall and start to winter so I'm well behind on blog posts. I do have a lot of updates since the last post. I've had a number of new podcast guests since the last blog post. I've had squash legend Mike Way on discussing Ali Farag, Jonathon Power and college squash. I also recorded a tribute episode to Canadian squash legend, Stuart Dixon. The most recent episode featured Bob Bowers who is 1 of the top squash trainers in the world. If you're interested in training this is a must listen to episode. You can listen to these episodes wherever you listen to your podcasts by searching 'Serious Squash Podcast.'

In other news I'm up to episode 87 of Squash Shots. There's a new episode every Monday morning. If you want to learn more you can check it out at or on Instagram @SeriousSquashShots

Last week I thought it would be fun to a figure 8 volley challenge. One take with a cold ball and see how many I could do. I ended up doing around 980 (give or take 10-20) as I lost count once or twice. Here's the video if you want to check it out.

I just completed my first draft of a sport psych workbook. For the time being I've called it 'Winning and Losing Between The Ears: An Athlete’s Guide and Workbook For Maximizing Mental Performance.'
It's 33 pages with 21 sections. Each section includes my viewpoint on the topic and concludes with a work section to customize that area for your game. Even though it's written by a squash player and coach it's applicable to all sports. If you're interested in this you need to subscribe to the Serious Squash email list where I will be sending out a free copy shortly.

Currently in Canada, most areas are in lockdown. This applies to my club as well so I've started filming a weekly workout video and posting it online. If you want to check then out you can do so here: Lockdown Workout Playlist I'm going to be rating the difficulty of each workout from 1 to 10. I've also been easing into the workouts since the holidays and the goal is to keep them short (10-15 minutes). 

There's always plenty of new updates and posts on the Serious Squash Instagram and Facebook pages. Let's hope we get through Covid-19 in the next few months so we can get back to playing the game we all love.
