This Week on HockeyStrengthandConditioning.com:
I hope everyone has enjoyed the week. You have to love this time of year. The frozen four is being played this weekend as well as the Master’s. The NHL regular season is winding down. We have a huge weekend here with the team. Hopefully by Sunday, we will know that 1- We are in the playoffs, and 2- Who we are playing.
Here is what we had this past week on HockeySC.com:
Strength Training Fundamentals by Darryl Nelson. Darryl gives some good common sense advice on a proper Strength program for hockey players from a functional perspective. Really good piece here from Darryl.
Early Off-Season Program by Kevin Neeld. Kevin presents us with a 2-day strength and conditioning program for youth players who are just making the transition from in-season to off-season training. Good stuff from Kevin.
Long Term Athletic Development by Dr. Steven Norris. This was submitted by Darryl. I haven’t watched it yet, but I plan on it soon. Here is what Darryl had to say about it – “This is excellent stuff. Dr. Norris is the ‘brains’ of Canada’s “Own the Podium” initiative for the 2010 winter Olympics…they set a record for most gold medals won in a winter games”
Finally was ACL Rehab Phase 2 from myself. This is phase 2 out of a 4-phase program that was successfully used to help rehab a player from an ACL surgery. When compared to phase 1, you can see some of the progressions that we made.
Thanks for the continued support- Sean, Mike, Mike, Anthony, and Kevin.
