View Full Version : lacrosse conditioning

Any opinions on what would be fair test for a competitive male high school lacrosse team to see if they are conditioned coming into the first day of practice for the season?

1 mile run and times or

1.25 mile run and times or

1.5 mile run and times

or maybe neiter and another test.
Thank you for any help and your opinion

I think none of them are applicable to lacrosse. Lacrosse, like hockey, requires short bursts of speed interspersed with periods of slow jogging, walking, standing, etc. Of course, other attributes like a agility are involved, but I assume we're just talking about conditioning. Distance running will test their ability to do longer duration, lower intensity cardio.
