Tip 1
Core strength is essential to lacrosse athletes. Building a strong core through proper excise will help prevent injury on the field and allow you to train more efficiently in the gym. Kyle Hartzell’s Go Pro Workout incorporates exercises that will help you build a rock solid core. Try adding Kyle’s Modified Windshield Wipers into your training regime.

Lie on the ground with your arms extended (lockout position for bench press) holding an Olympic bar. Place 25-45 lb plate on each end, USE COLLARS. Raise your legs off the floor so the soles of your shoes are parallel to the ceiling. Attempt to keep your legs as straight as possible and rotate them side to side (while stabilizing the weight on the bar). Try two sets of 10 with a weight that you can control.
