lacrosse weight training
While the training demands of lacrosse may appear to be endurance, agility, and footwork. The skills that win games are often neglected in training. The key to elite play is an athletes strength and conditioning to develop size, gain a step, and hone the X-factor intangables.
While finesse is crucial, the physicality of the game is often underestimated. The amount of punishment the body will take over a season is immense. The building strength and size is also tied to realigning and educating the body to reduce the forces of the game.
Athletes that are considering competing in college will so learn that coaches expect you to have lifting experience. Weight training in college is part of the culture and is expected. Increase size helps protects an athlete from contact injury, and other physical dangers on the field.
The athletic creativity and increased speed of the game from recent shot clock and box changes has raised the risk of injury as well. These demands must be addressed in comprehensive off-season, pre-season, and in-season training programs. This would include building power, ankle, and upper body strength to prevent injuries such as ACL and shoulder injuries.
High School training
Maximum Velocity is another way of saying running at full speed. The point in a race, workout or game that you reach maximum velocity depends on strength levels, experience and running mechanics. However, regardless of where and when you reach full speed, there are some differences in running mechanics and effort when compared to acceleration.
When running at full speed, you no longer need to try and apply the same level of force to the track as during acceleration. This is a common mistake among inexperienced athletes. Now that you are at full speed, you will be completely upright (perpendicular to the ground) and your body will no longer be leaning at an angle as you were during acceleration. By continuing to try to run faster and faster throughout a run, as though you were still accelerating, you are actually going to have a breakdown in running mechanics. By continuing to try to accelerate while beginning to fatigue, you will only slow yourself down faster because you can not continue to coordinate your movements with accuracy.
