Lacrosse warm up – Lateral Hop
When we warm up before training, we do all sorts of agility, low box, and explosive drills. The lateral hop is one of those drills that you can use not only before training, but also before practice or games. The low hurdles just make things more challenging in this environment, but aren’t necessary. The lateral hop is great for single legged deceleration, proprioception and balance. It’s also a drill commonly used during the later stages of ACL rehab. I believe anything good for rehab should also be used in a training situation as well. A strong and stable knee is a healthy knee.
