Remember last week I posted a video with some new High Intensity Interval Training combinations that you could try to improve your hockey speed and stamina on the ice. Well, this weekend I was looking through research articles online (WOW, I wish we had that when I was in Grad School – the money I […]
Without turning the post into a literature review, I hope that you are getting the idea that long steady state cardio training is not only mind numbingly boring, but also not your most effective way to develop aerobic or anaerobic power. If I told you that you could get more benefit from your hockey training […]
Today I am starting a new regular feature called “Good or Gimmick”. This is where I will discuss some of the training tools that you are seeing pop up in your local fitness club or on TV. I will try to weed through the hype and let you know if the tool is good for […]
Today, I dove into the mailbag for a little Q&A and this question was about pre-game nutrition from a player who was constantly losing focus and running out of gas during the third period – not good!
There could be several reasons for this including: fitness and conditioning, recovery and nutrition. This one was a simple one to figure out, it was related to nutrition for sure. This player was making a mistake that I see all the time, he was not getting these two key nutrients in his pre-game routine.
So remember my post from Tuesday, where I was fresh off my mastermind meeting – fired up to prove the Mario Lemieux (he wouldn’t even know who that was by the way) of fitness information marketing how wrong he was? Remember that? Up a 5am on my holiday? In the Starbucks takin’ care of biznus? […]
Before I hit you up with two new hockey training exercises that will help skaters and goalies alike, let me tell you a bit about my Mastermind Meeting in Miami (that’s South Beach in the photo on the left). The meeting was great as always – it is like going to a training camp with […]
Don’t worry; there are still some spots open in the Ultimate Goalie Training VIP Coaching Program. My guess is that it will fill by Saturday or Sunday. The first day you were really snapping up the spots, but now that people are back to work, the pace has slowed a little. I know a few […]
I had a question last week from a 15-year old hockey player asking me about whether or not he should take protein powder. It was a reasonable question and one I get a lot, but what struck me was that he asked if it would decrease his soreness after games, practices, workouts, etc. Questions like […]
Remember when I surveyed you guys are couple months ago and I asked you questions about how I could make the UGT 2.0 even better? Well, to be honest, some of your answers did not surprise me at all, but some of them certainly DID! You told me you wanted a Member’s Only Forum You […]
So while many of you were home in bed resting up for your New Year’s Eve festivities, I was at the Revolution Sport Conditioning studio taking advantage of the peace and quiet (not to mention the good light) putting this assessment for hockey goalies video together for you. I am leaving it here for a […]
Anyone else more than a little excited that it is only one week from Christmas Eve? I certainly am! I love Christmas, I will drag poor Paul out of bed at 5am on Christmas morning to see if Santa came. I am also pretty excited because I am basically finished my Christmas shopping which feels […]
I was lucky enough to meet up with Eric Marvin, Product Manager of the goalie division at Warrior for a few hours at the Revolution Studio on Monday and just like Santa, he brought a big sack of goodies (actually it was more of a hockey bag full of goodies). He walked me step by […]
