Good training session today. Didn’t do too much for conditioning today because I’m just starting off, will do more next time.
Pretty nice deadlift for 15! I’m 19 and haven’t hit that yet.
Looks interesting though - gonna be following.
Thanks guys glad to have you following!
UPDATE: I will be replacing the Rack Pull with the Sumo Deadlift.
Oh and I forgot to give my height and body weight: Height: 5’10”, Weight: 170lbs
I’m just go over my main lift again cause I’ve made more changes.

Good training session today. Was supposed to do chest flyes before chin ups, but I totally forgot lol. Went light on the neck curls cause this is my first time doing them.
UPDATE: I will be switching the max effort upper and speed days around. So the Speed&Conditioning is on Tuesday, Max effort Upper on Wednesday.
I have decided that it is in my best interest to finish out my newbie gains before moving on to a conjugate/concurrent system. So instead I’m going to run the alpha destiny novice program 2x a week (Alex says it’s ok to run it twice a week if you can’t do 3 times). I will run this until my newb gains stop, which will probably be soon because I’ve run some of Starting strength before(did not milk it out though). I’d consider myself a late/advanced novice. Anyways, here’s the new template:
Sunday: Practice/Prospect Camp
Monday: Novice Program Day A
Friday: Novice Program Day B
9/18/18, Tuesday: Novice Program Day A(This is supposed to be done on Monday, but I did not make he decision to do this program until today, so I just did it today):
Parallel Box Squat, 3x5: 275lbs
Floor Press, 3x6: 155lbs
Pendlay Row, 3x6: 135lbs
Overhead BB extensions, 3x10: 55lbs
DB Preacher Curls, 3x10,10,7: 25lbs (each hand)
Stiff Leg Deadlifts, 3x10: 225lbs
9/19/18, Wednesday: Speed&Conditioning:
10 yard falling start sprints, 10 sets
Broad Jump, 3x3
Bear Hug Walk, 10 minutes: 65lbs (taking quick 10-20sec breaks when necessary)
Good session today.
9/20/18, Thursday: Individual Practice
9/21/18, Friday: Novice Program Day B:
Parallel Box Squat, 3x5,5,6: 280lbs
Overhead Press, 3x5: 95lbs
Trap Bar DL (Low Handle), 2x5: 365lbs
Close Grip Bench Press, 3x7,6,6: 145lbs
Chin ups, 3x5: Bodyweight
Hanging Leg Raises, 3x10: Bodyweight
Good session today. Probably could’ve gone heavier on OHP and Chin ups.
9/24/18, Monday: Novice Program Day A:
Parallel Box Squat, 3x5,5,6: 285lbs
Floor Press, 3x6,6,5: 160lbs
Pendlay Row, 3x6,5,5: 140lbs
Overhead BB Extension, 3x10,10,9: 60lbs
DB Preacher Curl, 3x10,10,7: 25lbs(each hand)
Stiff Leg Deadlfit, 2x10: 235lbs
Good session today.
Keep it up
I like your decision to stick with a basic program twice per week. WS4SB is great but you’re young and there’s no reason to rush into it.
I’ve been playing lacrosse for 20 years now so if you have any questions let me know. I might create a training log here, highlighting my training leading up to the Indoor World Championships next September.
Thanks Vision1. I was actually just coming on here to post that I’m going to do the juggernaut method 2.0 instead. I know it’s not good to program hop, but this is much more catered to athletes than the alpha destiny novice program. And it’s high lifting frequency and volume which will be more beneficial for me as a novice unlike WS4SB. And it’s submaximal training, so more energy towards, speed/power work, and practice. I WILL stick to this program unless it’s absolutely necessary to switch again. I’m going to start it on a new log called, “Juggernaut Method 2.0, HS Lacrosse Player”. I’m happy to have a guy with your experience in the game following me! I will definitely follow your log if you decide to make it.
