I am going to give your legs a break and give you a quick little bodyweight push up variation that not only builds nice triceps, but (and here is where it ties into hockey training) it also fires up the core and the hip flexors.
Great for training both goalies and skaters and requiring minimal equipment.
Off-ice agility drills that I used to work on backward cross-overs for hockey.
If you are one of those hockey players who would like to improve your leg strength and decrease your risk of groin injury, then this is a great exercise.
Quick question…when you skate, do you push off one leg at a time or both legs at the same time? Okay, here’s another question…when you strength train your legs in the gym, do you usually lift the weight with one leg at a time of both at the same time?
Congratulations to Revolution Conditioning athlete, Andy McDonald on his invite to the tryout camp for the 2010 Canadian Olympic Hockey Team.
Thank you to all of those players who came to my 20-minute presentation on the components of off-ice hockey training that lead to on-ice success. As promised, here is a full copy of the presentation for you
