Off-Season Lacrosse Workout With Maryland Lacrosse
October 13, 2009
STACK spends a day with Maryland Lacrosse for an inside look at their intense off-season strength training program.
About the Video
The squad has been participating in fall ball, where they scrimmage and condition three days a week. Therefore, even though it is technically off-season training, S+C Coach Michael Szemborski must be inventive with the weight room programs to avoid over-training the players.
Lacrosse Off-Season Workout:
Start the warm up with the core. Because it is fundamental to everything that happens in lacrosse
---running, cradling, shooting---the core is a main focus of each workout. The lacrosse team will either do a bodyweight core circuit or add some weight to each exercise. Check out the Maryland Lacrosse Ab Circuit: Crossover Crunch
This is a very important strength training lift for lacrosse players. It focuses on hip development, which is fundamental given the dynamic movements required in the game. Watch this video for tips on how to perform Maryland Lacrosse Strength Training: Power Clean
