Whatever You Do, Don’t Do THIS (even if you are behind in your training)

It is normal to feel panicked; you should feel a little panicked at this point, that is normal. If you have not been keeping up with your training over the last 2-months at least – that means training a minimum of three days per week in the gym plus some speed and stamina training on […]

3 Key Body Parts Goalies Neglect To Stretch (but shouldn’t)

You and your groins – you are all about your groins, stretch, stretch, stretch! But there are lots of other areas that have a huge impact on your performance that you absolutely forget, so I am going to give you three stretches that you must complete every time you even think about stretching your groins.

Revealing Your Mobility Deficit

If you are not familiar with the term “Mobility Deficit”, then you better read on and watch the video.  Then do the test yourself. Remember a few weeks ago I mentioned that I would be going with a weekly theme for my articles (trying it out at least), well there were some good suggestions and […]
