I've been injured for a good four weeks now, damaged ligaments in my left foot in a practice match with a guy from my club. It's killing me to get back doing some exercise and some squash. I've missed the chance to play the remainder of the season's games and now our season is over I'm totally gutted.

 

I can walk OK, I've yet to try light jogging or anything like that, but do you think it would be fine for me to just go in court and hit some straight drives? I don't want to miss out on practice! Also, I heard swimming is a good exercise as it doesn't put pressure on my foot. Anymore recommendations for keeping up my fitness, as well as practicing for squash?

Hi sorry I've not been on here for a while, been bogged down with exams and things.

 

I've been going to the gym and swimming to keep up my general fitness, as well as going on court solo practicing all the shots.

 

I still feel a bit of pain in my foot so I've still not played properly for around three months now.  The doctor said it would be back to normal in about two months but I still don't feel right, so I'm going to try to get to a physio next week, I want to be ready for the new squash season.

Sam - the gym is the best place to go while waiting to get back on the court - there is so much you can do without walking on your foot - and using the exercise bike could even be an ok movement.
There is
  • shoulder work with controlled weight.
  • leg presses to keep the strength in your lower limbs
  • arm and wrist exercises - curls.
  • hand weights for your arms
  • dumb bells

Plenty more I am sure too that you can do at home using tubing tied to a post, push ups, situps, crunches, etc.

Boring I know to do it by yourself.
You better yet?
