Resistance Wear weighted training vests have been proven to improve performance on the field at all levels, no matter if its youth, high school, college, club or professional lacrosse.
While there have been relatively few studies done specific to lacrosse, it's clear that players must have size, strength, endurance, speed and agility to be a top lacrosse player.

At the most basic level, training in the Resistance Wear weight vest keeps your body acclimated to the extra weight you must compensate for when wearing your lacrosse gear. Performing short duration explosive movements in repetition creates greater muscle memory and fast twitch muscle growth. Additionally, your endurance will be much better after training with the Resistance Wear vest.

Training in the weight vest will increase your speed and explosiveness in all facets of your game.
- Improved aerobic and anaerobic endurance for all lacrosse players including midfielders, attacking and defensive.
