The game of lacrosse requires athletes to be quick, agile, and powerful. Resistance training contributes significantly to the development of speed, agility, endurance, and strength, ultimately making a lacrosse athlete more formidable on the field.

Developed with the expertise of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), Strength Training for Lacrosse provides an overarching biomechanical analysis of lacrosse and specific analyses of the physical demands of each position: defense, midfield, attack, and goalkeeper. Using these analyses, you can design an effective training program that translates to performance on the field. You will also find the following:
  • 11 detailed protocols to test strength, power, speed, agility, and high-intensity endurance capacity
  • 13 total body resistance exercises with 22 variations
  • 15 lower body exercises with 24 variations
  • 19 upper body exercises with 39 variations
  • 20 anatomical core exercises with 34 variations
  • 53 sample programs for off-season, preseason, in-season, and postseason resistance training
For each exercise, you will find a series of photos and a detailed list of primary muscles trained, beginning position and movement phases, breathing guidelines, modifications and variations, and coaching tips. You’ll also gain a deeper understanding of what muscles are involved in each exercise so you can develop a complete and targeted resistance training program.

Backed by the NSCA and the knowledge and experience of individuals who have years of experience as strength and conditioning professionals for lacrosse, Strength Training for Lacrosse is the authoritative resource for creating lacrosse-specific resistance training programs.

Audience

Strength and conditioning professionals, personal trainers, or other related professionals who supervise and train athletes for lacrosse; also for lacrosse coaches with intermediate or advanced understanding of strength and conditioning concepts and applications.
