Best offseason workout? Hit the (rebound) wall

The single most recommended offseason (and in-season) workout is just to hit the wall. Nothing helps more to keep your hands quick and in control than wall ball exercises. The Lacrosse Network’s Wall Ball Wednesday series is a great guide for different drills to do when it’s just you and the wall. However, solid brick walls with nothing breakable nearby are not always easy to find. Our friends over at LacrosseScoop.com realized that, and put together a comprehensive buying guide for all your rebounding needs. Analyzing price, performance, and everything in between, it is easily the most in-depth review you are going to find. Be sure to check out the guide and read through some other LS reviews, they’ve got a huge database for all things gear.

CrosseMusic – Sebastian Carter

New from Sebastian Carter, a remix of Alt-J’s classic “Breezeblocks.” Carter found a way to make Alt-J’s laid back vibe come off even smoother with a chill glitch edit. Alt-J recently released their new album, “This is All Yours.” If you like this, be sure to check out more from Sebastian Carter, and more from Alt-J’s new album. My personal favorite is Hunger Of The Pine.

ECD’s Nike Alpha U Review

Greg from East Coast Dye’s shows off the all-new Alpha U head from Nike. In the past, Nike heads have been very hit or miss. Some of their best have come in the form of the CEO and the Lakota, while their Dunk head was fairly unsuccessful. With ties to STX, some of their heads adapt qualities from the partner company. Traces of STX’s Hammer U head are definitely evident here, with a Nike twist on some of the design. With lots of sidewall holes and a new sidewall design, this should be a top option for defensemen this coming year.

STX Launches New Stallion 500 Helmet

…and it’s nowhere near as nice as it should be. Compared to Cascade’s helmets, this is on the same level as the CLH2. While it is just their debut helmet, and by all means is better than some of Warrior’s earliest helmets, I think it’s a fairly weak attempt. Coming from a company that emphasizes style and sleekness, this boxy attempt is not in the same image as some of their other gear. Leave your opinion in the comments, and check out more on their official page.
