DS Performance Strength & Conditioning Training Programmes
Duration: 12 weeks
DS Performance have created an exclusive series of sport specific, strength & conditioning training programmes that have underpinning, evidence based training methods, which have been put in place to improve your performance for all ages and abilities. All programmes have been designed to develop each specific performance variable through the progression of intensity and volume.
Along with your training program this book contains a supporting guide to mobility training. This guide uses myofascial release, static stretching and activation work to mobilise the major body parts used in training. It has been put in place to increase your mobility, it can also be used to support your warm-ups and cool downs. To aid your training, we also included a series of tables to create your lifting percentages. These tables will help you work out your working percentages from 40%-95%. The tables are broken down into 5% loads, all in kilograms, ranging from 10kg-300kg
All programmes by DS Performance are 12 weeks in duration, we recommend that you do two, six week training blocks, with a de-loading week between the two training blocks. This will allow the body to recover, prepare you for the second training phase and reduce any risk of injury.
Squash is a game that has varied rally durations, intensities and multi-directional movement patterns, that involves performing high skill levels at a fast pace. Stamina/endurance is important, but equally so are other physical attributes such as strength, power, agility, stability and speed, these are needed for good movement around the court, as well as racket head speed, for strong ball strikes. This is why our programmes have been designed to develop the key physical attributes for Squash.
Covering the essential physical aspects to Squash is just as important as putting the time in on the court. Choose your current training level, Amateur, Intermediate and Advanced for the variable you would like to train and progress your way up to "Advanced" to really improve your performance.
The three levels, Amateur, Intermediate and Advanced represents more your current training age, experience and skill level. Because weight training and other training methods have a completely different set of skills required when lifting and training correctly, compared to your sport.
DS Performance training programmes are written to run alongside a skill/sport specific based training plan. DS Performance programmes provide sessions for 3 days of training a week, to alternate between your skill/sport specific training sessions. DS Performance has selected five of the most important physical performance variables/attributes for each of the sports that are essential in developing your performance.
