Day 25 of 30 things every Lacrosse Player....you get it by now 💁🏼 @nextlevelrochester @3sixtyathletics @athleteschoicersm
Today's focus is on quality movements to train coordination, core and overall athleticism.
I use these exercises not only in my personal workouts, but with all my athletes as well. The purpose of such exercises is to build kinesthetic awareness between opposing limbs while maintaining a neutral spine, with the goal of creating efficient and powerful athletic movements, such as sprinting, striking, throwing, and in stick sports such as Lacrosse, hockey, tennis, and all sports requiring physical contact.
The purpose of the core musculature is to stabilize the spine to avoid injury, and to transmit force from lower body to upper body (in most cases) or vice versa. Perform these movements without any flexion, extension, or torsion of the torso/spine, and without any hip tilt to maximize the benefits to performance!
Crawling is a great exercise to build 'body armor' whether you're priming your body for the day's workout, or using it as a full body finisher at the end of your workout, it jacks your heart rate up while building core and joint stability of hips and shoulders, while incorporating all the benefits listed above!
