Head, Shoulders…

www.SMARTERTeamTraining.comYep, the next body part to pay close attention to is the shoulders. Very important for posture during speed and for allowing proper range of motion to elicit maximum speed. When you think about it, the little things do matter on game day. What you do walking to class or while at practice will dictate the final product when everyone is watching. Coach Taylor takes his young athletes through these drills each workout. He can be reach at coachtaylor@smarterteamtraining.com or schedule a workout with him by calling 410-828-8218 today.

www.SMARTERTeamTraining.comThey even show the mistakes! Man Inside Lacrosse is a tough crew. This series of video clips and drills was even more fun to do than it looks in this clip. Ryan Rabidou from Inside Lacrosse was willing to get right in and try the drills. Looking forward to showcasing more intermediate and advanced drills as the relationship between STT’s founder, Robert Taylor, grows with Inside Lacrosse.

STT’s Tip Of The Week featured on LaxLessons.com

If you are a lacrosse fan, coach, or athlete this clip is for you. The feedback has been great from STT nation. This is week two of STT being featured on LaxLessons.com’s Tip of the Week! A low budget drill that can be done with an entire team or used as a “focus” challenge. Continue to think outside the box and remind yourself and your players that it boils down to effort and attitude. Good things happen when you work hard and stay positive.  Check out this clip and let me know what you think. I look forward to hearing how your patterns differ from those described.

STT’s workout of the month for September 2010

What happened to tumbling in gym class, teaching the forward roll, or even how to fall and get up quickly?  Incorporate drills that teach athletes how to jump, land, fall, and get up efficiently and safely.  This agility drill is also hard on the cardiovascular system.  Make sure you are ready for this challenge.  This one isn’t for the weak at heart.  How tough are you?  Begin this drill on your belly six yards from an eight foot high object.  Try a soccer crossbar and the six yard box for example.  Get up as quickly as possible, touch the cross bar, and get back on your belly with your entire body behind the six yard line.  This counts as one rep.  If you aspire to be a pro, your goal is 12 or more, college level is 10+, and high school athletes should be able to complete more than 8 good touches in less than one minute.  Begin by completing 4 sets.  To increase the fitness component, rest two minutes between sets.  If you can get more than the goal reps each set, back up to eight yards.
