Proverbs of Squash : 30 more drills.

Featured

The correctly weighted message contained in the words of David son of Brian, which are spoken to athletes attending.

I am less fit than anyone else,

And I lack the skills an elite athlete should have.

I have not learned wisdom,

And I do not possess the knowledge

of World Champions.

Who has ascended to rank number 1 and

then descended?

Who has gathered the air in

the palms of both hands?

Who has wrapped up cool waters

in their t shirt?

Who has established all the

ends of the courts surface?

What is their name and the name

of their children – if you know?

Every proverb of Squash is refined.

Squash is a shield to those playing

fairly within its courts.

Add usefully to our words,

Or you will be reproved,

And you will be shown a fool.

Two things I ask of you.

Do not withhold them from me

before we commit.

Remove untruth and lies far from

me.

Give me neither poverty nor riches.

Just let me consume my portion

of nutrition,

So that I do not become fat and unfit

and quit Squash and say “Who cares about this nonsense?”

Nor let me become incompetent and

cheat or dishonour the spirit of my sport.

Do not slander a participant to another stakeholder,

Or they may curse you and you

will be found guilty.

There is a generation that curses its coach

And does not bless its opponents.

There is a generation that is pure

in its own eyes

But has not been cleansed from

its rubbish.

There is a generation whose eyes

are so haughty

And whose eyes look so arrogantly!

There is a generation whose teeth are decayed

And whose jaws are set hard;

They devour the lowly ranked ones

And the poor from among stakeholders.

The business administrators have two methods

that both cry, “Pay! Pay!”

There are three things that do not get satisfied,

Four that never say, “Enough!”

-The Government and an incompetent coach,

The recreation centre that has no free water,

And ambition that never says, “Enough!”

The spectators eye that mocks a champion and

despises obedience to a national sporting organisation

-The ravens of country will peck it out,

And the rising stars will eat it up.

There are three things that are

beyond my comprehension,

And four that I do not understand :

The way of a midge in the courts rafters,

The way of a spider unseen,

The way the ball rolls out of the nick,

And the way an athlete solo trains.

This is the way of a cheating athlete:

They take illegal performance enhancers;

Conceal the evidence, then say “I have done nothing wrong.”

There are three things that make

a court shudder

And four things a club cannot endure:

When the incompetent are administrators,

When a participant abuses the officials without rebuke,

When a hated champion is victorious,

And when an athlete is hit in the eyeball.

Four things in a court are among the simplest,

But they are high performance nonetheless :

The drive is not a difficult shot,

But it is the foundation of all rallies.

The drop shot is not a mighty shot,

but it draws the opponent to the front.

The volley has a different swing,

Yet it applies high pressure.

The lob is unreachable and buries

the opponent in the rear court.

There are three ways with

an impressive stride,

Four that are impressive for

quality movers :

The walk, the most efficient of movements,

Will get you to many balls.

The run, is faster and gives you more

time on the ball.

The forward lunge, is the end of movement

in the front court, from which you must rebound.

The side step in the mid court, will engage

your iliotibial band and results in quick volleys.

If you have foolishly exalted yourself

Or if you have schemed to do so,

Put your hand over your mouth.

For as the shaking of protein powder

in milk produces a drink

And the ball squeezed engages muscles,

So inciting to anger produces unnecessary quarrels.

Proverbs of Squash 29 Bucket Lob Serves.

Featured
Proverbs of Squash 29 Bucket Lob Serves, by daj 2022.

An athlete who refuses solid advice given fairly

Will suddenly be demotivated beyond recovery.

When sportsmanship is widespread, athletes rejoice,

But when indifference and money rule, the stakeholders groan.

An athlete who loves quality makes their coach rejoice,

But the one who keeps company with vampires squanders their hard work.

With principles a president brings improvement to the club,

but an administrator seeking personal profit brings it to ruin.

An athlete who flatters their opponent

spreads out a trap for them.

A dishonest athletes’ transgressions ensares them,

but the honestly fair one rejoices joyfully.

The righteous stakeholder is concerned about the legal rights of the lowly,

but the anti-ethical and uncaring has no such concern.

Boasting too much opens up the court,

but those who are patient limit opportunity.

When a wise athlete enters into controversy with casual participants,

There will be argument and rejection and little to no improvement.

Purely competitive athletes hate anyone cooperative,

and they seek to diminish their opponents.

A stupid stakeholder gives vent to all their feelings,

But the wise athlete calmly optmises their arousal.

When a lead administrator pays attention to lies,

All stakeholders will make incompetent decisions.

The casual participant and the elite athlete have this in common:

They can both see the ball on a well lit court.

When an administrator judges fairly,

the club will always be secure.

The racket and officials impart wisdom,

but a junior left unrestrained brings shame upon themselves.

When the overly competitive increase, joy decreases,

But the spirit of squash will see their downfall.

Discipline your athletes and they will bring you peace;

And they will give you great satisfaction.

Where there is no vision, the club has no direction,

But happy are those who observe the spirit of squash.

Some stakeholders will not let themselves be corrected by words,

For though they understand, they will not change.

Have you seen a stakeholder hasty with their words?

There is more hope for a fool than for them.

If a participant is pampered from their youth,

They will become thankless later on.

An athlete prone to anger stirs up strife;

Anyone disposed to rage commits many transgressions.

The haughtiness of an athlete will humble them,

But whoever is humble in spirit will obtain glory.

The partner of a cheater hates themself.

They may hear the call to testify, but they report nothing.

Trembling at opponents is a snare,

But the one trusting in their spirit of squash will be protected.

Many seek audience with an elite athlete,

but it is on court that an athlete receives justice.

A cheating athlete is destetable to natural ones,

But the athlete whose way is upright is detestable to the cheater.

Proverbs of Squash 24 ghosting routines, by david jarvis 2022

Proverbs of Squash 24 Ghosting Routines, by David Jarvis 2022.

Do not envy the cheating athlete,

and do not hang around with them,

for their morals are like a virus,

and they will attempt to persuade you.

By education an athlete is built up,

and by training they are made

healthy.

By consistency their systems are refined

with all sorts of specific and

generalised methodologies.

A wise athlete is powerful,

and with education an athlete

increases their power.

By skillful training they will wage

their campaigns,

and through quality advisors

there is victory.

Consistent quality is unattainable for a

casual player;

They cannot sustain the neccessary focus.

Anyone who risks harm

Will be called a dangerous player.

Dangerous play is unacceptable,

and team mates detest a hazer.

If you become discouraged on the

day of distress,

Your psychology needs improvement.

Contact athletes who are taken

away to hospital,

and hold back angry team mates

from their violence.

If you say, “You’re a cheating so and so,”

Does not the public examine them and yourself?

Yes, the spectators watching

will have much to say

and will gossip and comment

repaying each athlete

according to their own perceptions and bias.

My athlete, eat nutritiously, because that is

good;

Nutrition from whole foods is beneficial to

your performance.

Likewise, know that quality training is

good for you.

If you train with consistent quality you will
improve

and your hopes and smarter goals will be attained.

Do not tear down your opponent

in their own centre;

Do not defile their place of training.

For the elite athlete may fall

seven times, and they will get up

again,

But the defiler will remain

lowly by calamity.

When your opponent falls, do not

rejoice,

And when they are injured, do not

let your heart be joyful;

Otherwise, Community will see and be

displeased,

And they will turn away from yourself.

Do not be upset because of inaccurate

officiating;

Do not envy cheating athletes,

For there is no future for anyone

cheating;

Their gains will vanish when breaches are revealed.

My athlete, fear Community and the Coach.

And do not associate with dissenters,

For their disaster will arise suddenly.

Who knows what ruin both

will bring?

These sayings belong to the wise:

Dissmissing breaches of the rules is not good.

Whoever says to the cheater,

“Let us conceal your cheating.”

Will be cursed by community

and denounced by the

media.

But it will go well for those

reproving the cheater;

Blessings of good things will

come upon righteous athletes.

People will embrace the shoulders of the one

replying graciously.

Prepare your off court training, and get

your equipment ready prior to the session;

Then commit to training with purposeful quality.

Do not testify against your

team mates without grounds.

Do not use your speech to deceive others.

Do not think : “I will do to them just what they

have done to me;

I will repay them for what they did.”

I attended the recreation centre of the lazy ones,

Visiting the squash courts of the player

lacking optimal motivation.

I saw the courts were empty and dusty;

the viewing area was covered with

rubbish,

and the walls were in a state of disrepair.

I observed this and took it to heart;

I saw it and learned the lesson:

Too much sleep, too much partying,

Not enough focus upon consistent quality training,

and their poor performance will come like the

obese,

and their early death like a road accident.
