The 2017 MLL season has flown by and the players are getting geared up for the final stretch. With playoffs right around the corner, we took a look at social media to see how players are sharing their preparation tactics. We saw them taking steps toward overall recovery and body maintenance, mental stamina, and physical strength - these guys are geared up and ready to go in the Social Media Roundup on MLL Press Box.
Florida Launch attackman Dylan Molloy tried out his first cryotherapy session, which is a new and popular method of recovery for athletes. The entire body is exposed to temperatures between -190 to -256 degrees Fahrenheit, triggering the body to reduce inflamation, improve circulation, and boost the body's metabolic rate. Sounds crazy, but whatever gets him game ready.

Ohio goalie Scott Rodgers hit us with a little motivation when he shared his list of qualities for being a powerful leader and teammate. This list shows that it doesn't matter how many games you play in a season, but it does matter the amount of work you put in for yourself and the team. Rodgers knows his role on the team and is constantly working hard - can't wait to see what playoff season brings for the Machine.
I get questioned weekly about my role on my team. My role is to be a great teammate. To put the work in every week to obviously personally better my weaknesses but also help my team. I believe in these 10 qualities of being a great leader and teammate. I play one of the toughest sports in the world for a goalie. Only one guy plays but that is a small part of the other ways you can impact your team and Locker room. #BeContagious

Chazz Woodson gave us a #TBT over the weekend sharing his journey of returning to MLL. The Launch attackman took a two-year hiatus, but returned to the field stronger than ever. He posted this video on Instagram sharing that a year ago at this time he intended for his lacrosse career to be over. However, he put in the hard work and this is just a small preview of what we can expect out of this powerful player on the field.
