The Relevance of MASS Suit in Enhanced Lacrosse Training

The Relevance of MASS Suit in Enhanced Lacrosse Training

Lacrosse athletes require the same amount of conditioning, power and strength as soccer  and football players. They need to be able to cut, sprint, jump and shoot but at a relatively longer duration. For this reason, a comprehensive workout routine with innovative MASS Suit Gear for a lacrosse athlete has to include plyometric work for speed and power, weight training for strength and sprints.  MASS Suit is a patented wearable tool designed to minimize injury while maximizing the benefits of explosive training.

 

Benefits You Will See By Using The MASS Suit In Your Training

  • Increased speed, endurance and strength even faster
  • Playing at higher level for a longer period of time
  • Muscle endurance enhance dramatically
  • MASS Suit will engage all muscle groups eliminating muscle imbalances which will decrease the chances of injury
  • You will no longer worry about lack of endurance, strength and mental fatigue
  • The MASS Suit has been shown to enhance your workout efficiency by 73%
  • You will improve your fast twitch muscles and quick feet
  • Will see enhanced explosive starts and sided to side movements
  • Faster and smoother agility movements
  • Improved breathing and core strength

Lacrosse athletes require the same amount of conditioning, power and strength as soccer and football players. They need to be able to cut, sprint, jump and shoot but at a relatively longer duration. For this reason, a comprehensive workout routine with innovative MASS Suit Gear for a lacrosse athlete has to include plyometric work for speed and power, weight training for strength and sprints for over conditioning. But for lacrosse athletes, power development and explosive strength is a crucial determinant of success.

This can be a bit of a challenge for some athletes, thus forming the basis for technological exploration on how to curtail this. MASS Suit is a patented wearable tool designed to minimize injury while maximizing the benefits of explosive training.

There are various mechanisms and exercises that when combined with MASS Suit, contribute to an athlete’s power capabilities and explosive strength, the most impactful of which are outlined herein: 6 Amazing Exercises

1-Explosive Push-ups

Well, push-ups are an age-old tradition. Although little can be improved upon when it comes to the actual movements, there are explosive variations that can make it an effective carryover for a power athlete. Explosive push-ups could involve either landing on an elevated surface or inserting a clap at the top of the explosion. The key training tip is initiating the upward explosive action with intent. Arm action, in this case, is vital in firing quicker shots and passes and jamming up opponents. The focus is not on feeling fatigued as much as it is about managing to recruit as much force as can be garnered for every individual rep.

2-Rotational Side Planks

Side planks are a decent tool for core stability training. However, adding a rotational element curbs the challenge of maintaining stability while in motion, creating a movement transfer ideal for lacrosse. You could start with a side plank, bringing the opposite arm down to the planted arm then shift your weight onto the opposite hand as you bring the other hand up over the head to perform a side plank on the other side. While doing this, maintain a rigid torso and keep your hips and spine neutral. Keeping your core strong, particularly during rotations is important if you’re not undertaking regular training for a long period of time. MASS Suit enhances coordination, balance, side to side agility and core strength for maintaining stability while in motion, ensuring that you get the most out of the rotational side planks.

3-Rotational Side Planks

Side planks are a decent tool for core stability training. However, adding a rotational element curbs the challenge of maintaining stability while in motion, creating a movement transfer ideal for lacrosse. You could start with a side plank, bringing the opposite arm down to the planted arm then shift your weight onto the opposite hand as you bring the other hand up over the head to perform a side plank on the other side. While doing this, maintain a rigid torso and keep your hips and spine neutral. Keeping your core strong, particularly during rotations is important if you’re not undertaking regular training for a long period of time. MASS Suit enhances coordination, balance, side to side agility and core strength for maintaining stability while in motion, ensuring that you get the most out of the rotational side planks.

4-Seated Paused Box Jumps

As you would imagine, the box jump is a standard movement that is relatively common among most athletes. Unsurprisingly, box jumps can help develop explosiveness. Adding the extra challenge of eliminating the stretch reflex introduces a new level of difficulty and focus as well. The standard long jumps or box jumps allow athletes to load the jump by pre-stretching through the glutes and hamstrings, providing additional force. For paused box jumps, this stretch is eliminated such that the workload falls purely on the concentric force of the lower body. This is a very effective training mechanism as it places more focus on the speed of recruitment of muscle fibers and the power output generated by the muscles. Much as regular training develops the stretch reflex, focusing on pure concentric speed could help in improving its force, thereby adding more power to the movement. MASS Suit is engineered to target muscle groups by allowing every body movement to work against the force of resistance bands to improve full body strength and speed while doing these box jumps.

5-Explosive Zigzag Drills

This is a great drill for any player looking to work on defensive footwork, dodges and overall quickness. The objective is to break down into a good defensive position and explode out of it. Start in the bottom corner, sprinting out in a diagonal direction towards the next cone. Once you have reached the first cone, break down into defense and take a T-step. Repeat this until you reach the last cone, then sprint forward straight to the end. With the added resistance of MASS Suit, lacrosse zigzag pass drills covers several basics in the same challenging sprint sequence, only including quick stops, passing, cradling and explosive starts. This adds value to your regular practice session while enhancing strength and agility.

6-Explosive Lateral Step-Ups

Because lacrosse is a game that is highly dependent on one’s ability to change direction promptly, accelerate and decelerate efficiently, explosive lateral step-ups can help to maintain their speed while keeping their footwork sharp without occupying too much space. All you require for this is an elevated surface that is sturdy enough to hold most of your body weight, standing at about knee-height. Elevate one foot then explode up and over the elevated surface while you switch your feet midair. Using your original take-off foot, decelerate and load for the next step going back the opposite direction. This is a movement that could get real tough, real fast but with MASS Suit, the risk of injury can be minimized considering its ability to enhance endurance and balance while you’re performing. You can also keep up if you maintain great positioning of the knee over the foot, particularly when fatigue sets in. As you get better at rebounding back laterally by redirecting force, your footwork will improve further.
