If I had my way, this week’s blog posts would all be dedicated to stories from the Springsteen concert last Friday night – nope still not over that – how Bruce still has an awesome voice, how I can’t believe he did Candy’s Room and then to start the encore with Thunder Road followed by […]

Today I am sharing some exercises that will help goalies (and skaters for that matter) get a stronger shot, but first off, thanks to those of you who “followed” @Coachtdoig the other day – today Tyler let me park in my parking spot again, so I think we are over it :). For those of […]
Okay before I get to the topic at hand today which is hip exercises for hockey players – if you ever get a sore back then you should check these out for sure, I will explain more in a second, but first let me tell you a story from the Revolution Gym… so my young […]

During off-ice goalie training, the goal is to enhance the physical capabilities to execute your movements on the ice with more speed and precision.

Guess I got too much sleep last night because this post, this report over delivers a little on goalie training program design. I am not going to try and sell you on goalie training. I am not going to justify why you can kiss your potential good by if you do not do some goalie training away from the ice. If you are serious about your craft, it is already a part of your routine and I have already written dozens of articles about the key exercises that need to be a part of any successful off ice goalie training program.
