Lacrosse Dynamic Warm Injury Prevention
This video demonstrates my favorite pre-practice warmup drill. It will introduce basic on-field lacrosse warm-up and movement skills. Be sure to focus on the athlete(s) athletic position. The idea is to stay low, chest up, hips, knees, shins and ankle aligned. This position lowers the athlete's center of balance and increases their ability to change direction and decreases stress about the joints, therefore, decreasing the chances of injury. We want the athlete to absorb forces with their muscles, not the joints. Consistent adherence to this and similar programs have been shown to improve an athlete's movement skills and reduce the risk of injury.
