12-27-2008, 04:20 PM
My son is 15 years old and he is trying to establish a work out routine that would help him in Spring Lacrosse

We do not have access to a gym unfortunatley

But i do have a treadmill , a eliptical machine and a Rower in our basement

I have a core ball and many dumbells and alot of resistance bands from Jump Stretch

Just trying to get some feed back/ help from the members so that i can put together a decent program that he will not get board with and get him in shape for the up comming season

Join a gym and do "Starting Strength" by Mark Rippetoe. On "Off" days do some type of plyometric training and HIIT.

Above all else, he should row. A lot.

Rowing will make him fitter, increase his focus, and work his core muscles. Plus, it doesn't put stress on his joints (the kid is growing, after all), and it doesn't require as much time as running does to perform an equivalent workout. Just make sure he learns the proper technique first.
