You know you get to take some time off after the hockey season; learn how much time you should take before starting your off ice hockey training.
Do you think your core training for hockey should focus more on core stability or core strength? Do you know the difference between core stability and core strength?
Can you see where this hockey player just spent the off-season buiding the foundation for a great injury?
As a hockey goalie, you cannot afford to get tired. You cannot let your legs turn to cement and weigh you down as the game goes into the third period and beyond.
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?
