We added some great content this week on HockeyStrengthandConditioning.com.:

–     “Shopping For the Right “Dryland” Training Program” from Mike Potenza.

As the summer gets closer, parents and young hockey players will hear about many camps and programs available for off-ice training.  Shopping for the right “Dryland” training program can be made easier by asking a few questions.  Coach Potenza lists what questions to ask and why to ask them.

–     Answering to a forum post, Jaime Rodriguez shows sled variations at Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning for the Video of the Week.

–     Sean Skahan breaks down 4 phases of “In-Season Core” work.

Also, the Coaches Forum is jumping.  Lots of great discussion already, including “Testing Hockey Players”.  Find out the answers to:

  1. What are the best tests to use in the beginning of the season for college and pro hockey players to determine anaerobic capacity, power, and strength.

 

  1. Does anybody have their players perform the test multiple times during the season and post season to compare the strength and conditioning to the pre-season?

 

Hope you all are enjoying the site.  Any questions let us know. 

Michael, Sean, Mike, and Kevin.
