Lacrosse training programs must carefully balance the rigors of one of the most strenuous team sports. The sport requires the physical and performance qualities of most other sports combined. It a fast-paced game in which the players need a tremendous amount of speed, power, agility, mobility, and explosiveness. For those reasons, proper speed and agility training are crucial to a successful lacrosse program – for all positions. Training these aspects of the game is what’s going to separate your team from the competition.

As with soccer or rugby, one of the challenges of designing an optimal lacrosse conditioning plan is combining all the required elements of fitness without one negatively affecting the other. Plyometrics for developing explosive power is used in many sports as an effective way to increase speed and power. Lacrosse players can benefit from both upper and lower body plyometric exercises.

If you want to play explosively, train explosively!
