I’ve noticed there are a few lacrosse players on the boards here, and I had a few questions (for anyone to answer, not just lacrosse dudes ha ha ha). I play club for my state college, and we’re pretty serious. Our season starts up in mid-February. Here is what we usually do for practice:
Warm up:jog 2 laps
run drills:more jogging/sprinting
finish with long sprints
In the fall when we had practice 3X/Week, I lost a good deal of strength even though I was eating above maitenence calories and working out quite hard (ABBH and TBT alternated).
My question is, are there any suggestions as to how I could minimize muscle loss doing that much running 3x/week? Could I rig it so they worked like 3 really intense interval sessions and use them for cutting?
