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
