In my article immediately preceding this one, I wrote of the dynamite summer Pro Camp that a team of professional lacrosse players, college assistants, and my long time friend, celebrity trainer (and former NJ All-State Midfielder) Steve Jordan put on for our Space Coast lacrosse community. The main objective Steve brings to the camp is the strength, speed, and agility portion.
This year, Steve came with two very novel concepts. The first was a 6 weeks pre-season lacrosse specific training program he calls LaxFIT. Even more uniquely, it is attainable (for an incredibly reasonable price) via online video training modules that the user logs into and completes the program on their own schedule on their own time.
Steve and I recently had an indepth discussion about this in our latest “Lacrosse and Sport” podcast (player is above) and I would encourage to anyone reading to take a listen to it to hear about the LaxFIT program straight from Steve. While there is so much more to his LaxFIT concept, the main points that I took from our talk was that:
1.) The program is all high intensity interval training that does not require special equipment purchase.
2.) The movements and program are designed specifically for the physical needs unique to a male or female lacrosse player.
3.) It is a day by day 6 week recipe for lacrosse players of all ages to ready themselves for their upcoming lacrosse season.
You can learn more about Steve’s program by listening to our LaxFIT episode above or by visiting this link below:
