Scott shares insights on success and the pitfalls that come from losing focus. He even has advice for your love life!

A Message from Scott to LaxNation:

Thus far I’ve covered a lot of training topics. I’ve received some great questions via email. I’m in the process of writing a Lacrosse Training Manual and I need your feedback. What would you want included in the manual? Here are my ideas so far:

#1- I was going to explain my training methodology in English and not Coach-speak.

#2- Talk about weight training and conditioning

#3- Diet

#4- Efficient skill training for Lax

#5- Have 8-10 weeks of training programs with weight and conditioning

I was thinking of explaining everything via a private video connection to the manual. For example, exercise would link to a members only website (free to those that purchase the manual) where there would be a video example of the exercise. You opinions would be greatly appreciated. In the reply let me know your age so that I can get a feeling for what stage of development that you’re in. You can reply to this post, email me, and/or make a comment on my website (www.scottumberger.com).
