How to Quicken my Startup
My name is Jason and I am 18 years old. I play defense in lacrosse for my high school, and next year will be starting college lacrosse. One of my strengths in playing is that I am very fast, once I start going. The problem for me is that it takes me some time to start up and gain speed.
For my position, it is very helpful if one can go from a stationary position to a full sprint quickly. I was wondering what I can do over this summer to quicken my startup speed? I was thinking a combination of lifting weights and conditioning, but what kind of lifting and what kind of conditioning I am unsure of.
I weigh about 160 pounds if this helps at all, and my upper body strength is very good, but have always lacked a little in the legs. Any and all help here would be much appreciated. Thank you. -Jason Answer by Dominique:
Thanks for your running training question.
I am not too sure about the weight lifting. It can help improve your overall fitness, it can help make you leaner. So it probably should be part of your training program, but I'd expect more from the stuff below:1) Plyometric exercises
These are exercises that help you
