This log will cover my training leading up to the World Indoor Lacrosse Championship in September 2019.
I’m 29 years old. I’ve been playing lacrosse since I was 6. I’ve been lifting / training seriously since I was 17. My training has varied greatly over the years, mostly due to injuries but also due to gym availability and personal interests. I am creating this log to stay focused and motivated.
My goals are as follows:
Bulletproof my body as best as possible. I have a bad neck and terrible shoulders (multiple labrum surgeries). This is my number one priority as it’s the biggest limitation in my game.
Regain 5-10 lbs of muscle and the associated strength that comes with it. I used to only care about numbers but my training philosophy and interests have changed over time. I don’t have any hard goals in regards to major lifts. My strength training will likely show this.
Play enough competitive lacrosse so that my skills and knowledge are peaking at the age of 30.
Be “in shape” come September with the required level of conditioning. This aspect of my training will not be important until several months out of competition.
