    I'm thinking of picking up lacrosse again (played it as a kid 15-20 years ago) in January. I've pretty much only concentrated on lifting the last 4 years (and ignored exercise altogether for 6 years before that) so my endurance has gone to hell.

    I just started a cut using the the Westside for Skinny Bastard (and fat assholes) routine after putting on about 20lbs (up to 255) on Pur's routine. I was thinking of sliding into the sports conditioning version of this routine. Anybody have any experience with it? or have any suggestions for other routines?

    warm up jog for 5 minutes
    keep it slow, just get warm

    then do some intervals

    15 second jog, 15 second sprint

    do that for 3 minutes 3 times a week

    eventually work up (when you get better conditioned) to 8 or 10 minutes, and/or increase the intervals to 30 seconds.

    This is what I did for lacrosse, and eventually did 30 second intervals for 15 minutes, 4 days a week in addition to practice.

    It was brutal, but I got in awesome shape.

    edit: I was recruited DI for lacrosse (don't play anymore though) and my brother plays for a top 10 DIII team. We both had a very similar routine to this from our coaches.

    sounds like something I did when I was looking to try out for my university football team. I had totally forgotten about that. Gonna be fun with the winter coming on

    Incorporate agility drills in your exercise. I recently graduated and played lacrosse all throughout college and was an All-American and my best advice would be to do intervals but work on cutting and agility drills as well just to get the body used to it. I use Ross Enamaits Infinite Intensity and love it.

    Few other questions, what kind of agility drills did you do specifically? You wouldn't happen to have a link to the routine or at least the template for it would you?


    Thanks for the help :bigthumb:
