Stick Trick Saturday: Chest Bump

Editor’s note: Welcome back to new season of Stick Trick Saturday thanks to the unyielding support of Wolf Athletics, one of the most innovative lacrosse companies to join our stable of LAS Partners. LAS Insiders save BIG on the Ghost shaft from Wolf. SEASON 2 features a new host, an improved format, and some of the most amazing scenery from today’s up and coming lacrosse towns. We hope you enjoy!

The inversion moved in and the fog has taken over the city. Tired of all of the gray, we loaded up the LAS 4×4 and took Stick Trick Saturday to a whole new elevation!

The Chest Bump is a nice way to practice buddy passes alone or rock out a monster celebration. Just give the ball a soft toss toward your chest.

As soon as the ball gets close, start to pop your chest outward to easily redirect the ball toward your head. Catch it if you need to, but we all know stalls are where it’s at!

If you’ve got that under your belt, take stick tricks to new heights by working on stick-less body stalls.

Follow the same steps except instead of popping your chest outward, limbo backward and softly rock the ball onto your chest.

Just like catching a stall with your stick, catching it on your chest requires some give on impact to easily cradle the ball between your collar bones.

When ready, explosively pop your chest upward and outward to give the ball enough height to easily track back to the stick.

Voila, now you’ve mastered the Chest Bump and the Chest Bump body stall.

I hope my new Glow Ghost and I were able to help you take stick tricks to a whole new level. Get out there and get bumpin’!
