YouTube best way to train for Lacrosse…no way.
I just saw a tweet from a player saying “he’s looking forward to training for Lacrosse. YouTube is the best teacher.” UGH. I disagree, and this is from the guy who has multiple YouTube videos below. Videos are great for getting a visual representation for an exercise, or maybe get an idea for a new exercise to liven up the workouts. But it should not be the best teacher. First of all, most YouTube videos instruct on isolated exercises. It takes a human being to come up with the programming to determine the proper weights and exercise variables. Secondly, it takes a coach who knows what they’re doing to watch you do the exercise and make corrections on the spot. A video cannot do that for you. Take videos for what they are…a nice tool to enhance your workouts by giving you ideas and expanding your knowledge base.
