Weight Training Programs : Lacrosse Weight TrainingDavid Frank October 8, 2019 6 Comments
This is Greg Koenig owner of fitness for life
and today we are going to talk about weight training for lacrosse players. Here again
one of the things we want to emphasize in training for lacrosse is trying to simulate
a lot of the movements that they have on field. And bringing those into a gym setting if you
will. Progressing or actually having a progressive weight to add a key element to the work load.
What we’ve got Hunter doing is we have a resistance band and he is simulating a lacrosse throw.
And as you can see is ballistically driving his hands through the range of motion, incorporating
a lot of core as well as lower body. Of course lacrosse players are generally running as
they are throwing. So a lot of instability there. And a lot of core being engaged to
keep your body stable while you are throwing and running simultaneously. And these guys
are throwing at a pretty fast pace, so having a lot of forearm strength as well as core
strength plus leg speed is crucial. These are just one of the particular exercises or
this is one of the particular exercises that you can do to strengthen your body and be
more sports specific for lacrosse. This is Greg Koenig and this concludes our talk of
weight training for lacrosse players.
