3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but not what I was hoping for May 5 2008

I am a physical therapist with a lacrosse-obsessed son. I bought this book not because I need to know how to strength-train, but because I wanted to know what muscles should be strength-trained to improve lacrosse performance.

This book has a lot of information about strength-training in general, and it gives nice specific detailed workouts ('Day 2 do these exercises', etc). But it does not tell me anything that I, as a PT, don't already know. For example, it says that for lacrosse, the upper body muscles that should be strengthened are the chest, back, shoulders, biceps, triceps. Um, yeah. That about covers everything, so - not helpful.

To improve running speed it says to do sprints. Again, not so helpful.

I would say that the author is pretty well-educated with regards to exercise physiology. If you're looking for a concise yet thorough book about strength training, with various strategies for when to train and what you could substitute - this is a good book. If you're looking for information about exactly what muscles to train for lacrosse, I feel this book falls short.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good ideas presented Jan. 2 2008

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like the way this book is put together. It lays out week by week plans for the off season as well as on season. The author also explains why certain workout techniques are suggested for different times of the year. I've read through and plan to use the routinues myself and see if if it puts me back in condition to play some over 40 ball. Until then I've reserved the final star.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Basic Feb. 6 2013
By Jersey Girl - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my 16 year old son. Read reviews but decided to go ahead anyway. What I didn't realize was that it assumes that you have access to nautilus equipment. I don't know why but I assumed it was "weight training" so it was using free weights. Oops. He's modified some exercises but it really is pretty basic information anyway. I would only recommend it if you REALLY have no idea which muscle groups you need to strengthen to play lacrosse.
