Lacrosse Ball Warm Up

Lacrosse Ball Warm Up


Here we’re going to demonstrate how to use the lacrosse ball to warm up the upper body. I always like to start on the pecs on
one side. Work kind of all the way around, getting into the big part of the musculature, as much as you can. From there I like to shift towards the outside of my shoulder. Kind of work all the way around the delts. If you shift back towards the anterior side a little bit more you can get the biceps tendon. And after that you’ll shift more towards the posterior side. You can work into sort of that posterior capsule area. And you can change: you can play around with where you hold your arm, and that will change where you feel the pressure on the soft tissues. From there you shift into more of the rhomboid area, so getting in between the shoulder blades and the spine. Then move that lacrosse ball up and hit the upper trap. And follow that all the way around on the other side, so kind of go to the upper trap on the other side. You’re going to work your way down to the rhomboids on that side. Back around toward the posterior shoulder. To the outside around the delts. And the anterior, getting into that biceps tendon. And then around to the pecs on that side. After that, you can position yourself just a little bit differently to get into your lats. It’s helpful to raise one arm up. And then you kind of position that ball so you can go side to side, you can go up and down, and that way you can shift where you feel the pressure of the lacrosse ball.
