Welcome to the “Picking the Brains of the Pros” Series!
What’s going on laxers?
I am extremely excited to announce the very first installment for a series which I hope will produce many more installments to come…
In “Picking the Brains of the Pros,” I will be doing my very best to breakdown what success looks like in the sport of lacrosse.
How am I going to do that?
With each one of these posts, I will be interviewing a professional in the lacrosse industry, and asking them questions with the intent that you will be able to collect some real, actionable takeaways to incorporate into your training, or in-game approach IMMEDIATELY.
This is an ongoing interview process with whatever pros, coaches, trainers, etc. I can get the chance to speak with.
With that being said, if you see some questions being asked that you think could be worded better, or if there are questions you would like to have added into the interviews please please please, leave a comment below the post, send me an email, or hit @1StopLax up on twitter!
As well, if there is a particular player, or person in the lacrosse industry you would like me to get into contact with, speak your mind! I’ll do whatever I can to get the answers you want.
So Where is the Interview???
