Build balance and strong legs for hockey.
Later this week I will share one of the exact workouts I used for training my pro hockey players this summer. I have been really working on being efficient with our time in the gym. My goal is to give them maximum benefit with minimal time. Anything we do has to help make them a better performer on the ice or reduce their risk of injury. All of the ‘fluff’ has been cut out. If you are spending 2 hours on your weight training, then you do not know what you are trying to train – you are just putting in time and hoping that some of the exercises you are doing will make you better.
Today I am sharing one of the exercises that does just what I have described above. It builds strong powerful legs for skating with the requirement for a rapid push and it improves your balance which will not only make you stronger on your skates, it will also train your ankle, knee and hip stabilizers to help reduce your risk of injury. Check it out in the video below.
Give it a try and let me know what you think. Remember to check your inbox later this week for a detailed outline of an actual workout I use with my pro hockey players. I don’t often share these programs, but I want to give you a special treat since I have been a little delinquent with my posts over the busy summer months. Stay tuned!
