I hope everyone has had a great week.  It is unbelievable to think that training camps will be starting in a little over a month now.

This week at HockeySC, we got some good contributions from different people other than me, Mike, Kevin, and Darryl.  I think it is great when other coaches and practitioners contribute to help make our site what it is.  Here is what we added this week:

The Hip Airplane by Jeff Cubos.  In this week’s video of the week, we have an excellent re-gression for the Single Leg Straight Leg Deadlift.  This is an important exercise to master as is has many benefits for any athlete, not just hockey players.  We use the 1-leg S.L.D.L. often with our players.  We are actually doing at least one form of it daily as either part of warm up or as a strength exercise with dumbbells or kettlebells.  Jeff’s videos
show simple ways to make some necessary corrections with athletes who may have difficulty in extending the back leg straight.

 

Choosing a Protein/Energy Bar Wisely by Chris Pietrzak-Wegner.  This is a great article which gives necessary tips on selecting the right protein/energy bar.  Choosing a good nutrition product can be quite confusing for any person.  There is a huge variety of protein bars on the market today and unfortunately, most aren’t much different from candy bars when you look closely at the ingredients involved.  Chris does a great job in explaining what to look for in simple terms.

 

Thanks again for all of your continued support!

 

Sean, Anthony, Mike, Kevin, and Darryl
