Learn a Great Strength & Conditioning Exercise for Lacrosse!

By dustin.moscoso - Last updated: Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Lehigh University Head Strength & Conditioning Coach, Eric Markovcy, uses a ladder drill that is designed to keep the players’ feet under them. In addition, it is important that the players lead with the proper foot when changing direction. Coach Markovcy also makes the drill more “game specific” by having the players do the ladder drill based upon his voice commands and also upon his hand signals.

Ladder Drill Concept: In/In/Out/Out

Drill Summary: In the ladder drill he stresses hips low and chest high and proud. With the chest up he also wants the eyes up so that the players have the vision to see everything. The players go through the drill with their sticks in their hands. On his mark, the player steps in with both feet and then out with both feet. The players will go both right and left.

Teaching Point: Progression to the voice or hand signals should only be done once mastery of the initial ladder drill is achieved.

Create Faster Swimmers with this Strength Drill!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Sunday, June 1, 2014

Larry Stoegbauer, a highly successful swimming strength coach, shows you an effective drill to reinforce the swimmer’s pattern for swimming at his or her faster than normal swim speed. The overspeed training technique shown in this segment creates overspeed, and not assisted swimming.

Overspeed Drafting Drill

Stoegbauer uses two swimmers for this drill with one attached to the cord as the “rabbit” who sets the pace and the other swimmer who is in overspeed training. The “rabbit” is in the water at the far end of the pool with the elastic cord fully stretched while the swimmer is in start position on the deck above. On the coach’s command, the “rabbit” leaves the wall and is pulled across the pool swimming freestyle while the training swimmer dives in and drafts slightly behind the “rabbit,” swimming in the wake at a speed faster than normal.
