In the spirit of the holidays, useful advice from the Blue Crabs to all.
12 Days of VLC, Day 8: Condition the Right Way by Coach Shane Warner (VLC 2022 HC, played at Binghamton)
Youth & HS players far too often prepare for the spring by conditioning the WRONG way. Kids think they will get in shape for the season by jogging 3 days before tryouts. That is not how it works, & you will be in for a rude awakening. Conditioning needs to start NOW! Jogging, riding a stationary bike, or eating a salad is not conditioning. You need to put on some sweats & a beanie, find a field, & RUN FAST with minimal rest. Here are some sprint workouts that will make you a better lacrosse player. #crabnation
