Prior to performing each exercise it is important that you check the pole or door anchor as well as all attachments and resistance bands to ensure that they have been properly secured.

Stand at an appropriate distance from the anchor point so that all slack has been removed from the resistance band. There should be light tension on the band at the start of each exercise movement. You should feel resistance through the entire range of motion.
Each exercise repetition should be done at a moderate pace. Both the positive movement (away from the starting point) and negative movement (returning to the starting point) should be done at a controlled tempo so that you feel tension throughout the exercise. This will encourage an increase in the development of the stabilizing muscles that are required to maintain proper athletic form.
Performing each exercise with the proper technique through the complete range of motion is required for increasing strength and flexibility while limiting the risk of injury. Select a resistance band that will allow you to complete each movement while maintaining maximum control and proper form. If you are struggling to maintain proper technique use a lighter resistance band until you are able to successfully complete each repetition.
Complete three sets of 8 to 12 repetitions per set for each exercise. Rest for one to two minutes between sets. Repeat for each side.
Vary your training routine. Concentrate on lacrosse skill specific exercises on one training day and strength and conditioning exercises the next.
