Lacrosse game, lost 6-5, scored a couple.
Training camp starts tonight for my other team


Friday December 14, 2018
1.5 hour training camp. Lots of guys showed up but the talent wasn’t as good as I expected. I was a bit rusty but can’t imagine not making the team. Two exhibition games tomorrow.


Exhibition game today. We got worked, lost 1-11. No offence, weak goaltending, and poor performance all around. I signed with the team after the first game so didn’t need to play the second. Also tweaked my neck so I need to work on rehabbing that now.


Yesterday I did some foam/lax ball rolling, mobility work, and strengthening for my neck. Then went for a hot tub and sauna. It’s recovering well, hopefully by Friday I’ll be able to lift.

Lacrosse practice

Saturday December 29, 2018
First game of the season. We won 16-14. I was a little bit sick and rusty but did alright. Coaches have confidence in me as I was on the top Defence line, draw team, and penalty kill.

Vision how do you attach a head weight like you have described here? Very curious man.


I bought one of these:

It’s pretty uncomfortable but it wasn’t that expensive and I figured it was worth trying.


Very interesting idea, will be very curious of your results

Lacrosse Practice

Saturday Jan 5, 2019
Lacrosse game, lost 19-15. I played well but took a slash and injured my wrist late in the game. Hopefully can rehab it and be ready for next weekend.

Sunday, Jan 6, 2019
Easy lower body machine workout while I focus on wrist recovery (supplementation, icing, compression)

Leg Extensions
Hip Adduction
Hip Abduction
Leg Press Calves
Lying Leg Curls
1-leg Calf Raises

All for 3 sets 10-15 reps


Another easy workout, wrist is healing very well.

Face pulls
Unilateral DB Bench
1-arm Pulldowns
Seated Chest Press
Seated Cable Rows
DB Lateral Raises
Tricep Pushdowns

3 sets each


Wednesday January 9, 2019

Jump rope

  1. YTWLs: 3x8
  2. DB Snatch: 45x5, 65x5, 80x3, 90x2, 90x2, 80x3 reps per arm
  3. Box Squat: 45x8, 135x5, 225x5, 275x4, 275x4, 225x5
  4. Weighted Side Plank: 3 sets each side with 25 lbs
  5. Cable Ext Rotations: 3 sets

Strength drops quick when I’m in-season and not lifting often enough. Need to be more diligent and get in 2+ sessions per week. Almost dislocated my left shoulder on one of the DB Snatch reps at 90 lbs. I shouldn’t be weight chasing with this exercise.


Thursday January 10, 2019
Lacrosse game in my rec league. We got murdered 10-2.

Practice tonight and a game on Saturday. Wrist is continuing to heal.


Messed up my finger at practice on Friday. It got bent back with the follow through of a shot. My palm is all bruised now.

I taped it and still ended up playing in our game on Saturday. Won 13-5. I didn’t play great but my injuries are piling up. Also scraped my knee pretty bad on the turf.
