Specific Drill So You Can Stay Low And Dominate Your Crease Movements

Do you ever look for it?  I do every time I watch a game.  It usually starts to appear about 10-minutes into the second period.  Then I know a team is in trouble. What is this sign that puts a team at risk?  The sign that coaches and shooters see?  The sign that is right […]

More Metabolic Finishers for Hockey Goalies…one for skaters too.

I feel sorry for you… I feel sorry for you, I really do.  You see I forked over my entire weekend plus over $700 to spend the weekend in Vaughan, ON – never heard of it? yeah, well… Why did I do that – I did it for a man – Dr. Andreo Spina.  No, […]

Q&A: Cardio Training for Hockey Goalies

Hope your day is off to a great start. After my meeting with Bedros, Craig and the rest of the crew in San Diego I changed my flight to a red eye into Detroit via Atlanta. Although sleeping overnight on a plane is never fun, it got me into DTW at 9:30am rather than my original flight which would have had me arriving at 6:45pm + the 2.75 hour drive to get me home sweet home.

So, yesterday was a bit of a write off, but I did get to visit my Mom on Mother’s Day, so I know she enjoyed that.

The meetings and workshops were great – I learned a lot and left with my marching orders for the next 30 and 90-days. It helps so much to know that I will be held accountable to my coaches and my fellow group members. From workshop to workshop we have to show what we have accomplished and I sure don’t want to be the one who shows up and all I have to talk about is how much time I have spent thinking about what I am ‘gonna do’. I always want to show what I have done. That’s DONE like dinner.

So if you are still plotting in your head how awesome your off-season training is gonna be and how fit you are gonna be next season – let’s try this – do something today to move yourself forward. You get results with DONE. As I mentioned last week, we spend a lot of money to be in that group and some still show up to talk about what they want to do. Some of you are the same – maybe you have purchased the pro-style Ultimate Goalie Training 2.0 and it has done nothing but sit on your computer until today – do at least one flexibility module and get it DONE.

Okay – on to the business at hand – this is a response to a question sent in by one of you – – you may end up being sorry you asked. Here is more than you ever wanted to know about cardio training for hockey goalies (this is what I call energy system training).
Cardio Training For Hockey Goalies

I had a question from a long time subscriber Trevor last week who asked for an article on the energy systems used by hockey goalies and how exactly they work. His scenario was something like this – he spent lots of his after work hours doing home renovation work and then had late evening games with his men’s league team.

What he found was that he was getting pooped by the time the third period rolled around. One of the solutions he offered for this was to skip his warm-up as a means of conserving his energy for the game (I think he already sensed that this was probably not the best solution).
