This week at HockeyStrengthandConditioning.com, we have some really good content. The site has been growing week by week as we continue to get more and more good contributions. Also, the forum has been buzzing with some great posts by different people.
Up first was Kevin Neeld’s Dissecting the 1-Leg Squat. Kevin gives us a different look at the 1- leg squat and different ways to progress it in a safe and maybe a more biomechanical way than the traditional pistol style 1-leg squat. As a big 1-leg squat endorser, this was a good article for me.
Next was another article from Kevin- Team Dynamic Warm-Up. This is kind of a new feature on the site where we are posting really easy programs that coaches and trainers can implement immediately with their players and teams. This was the first installment of our new Youth Training section on the site.
Next up was Mike Potenza’s Post-Game Conditioning Ideas– I really think that finding the right modes of conditioning for the players is a huge part of being a strength and conditioning coach for a hockey team- especially in-season. Mike looks at how players who play different amounts of time versus others on the team who may play more or less time. Great stuff from Mike.
My own Reap the Benefits of Proper Stretching was up next. I wanted to add this one to help educate our youth training community. This might not interest those of us who know the different ways to classify stretching, but for those who don’t know, this is very informative. You can also read this on my blog in the Article section.
Top 5 Take Homes from My Weekend with Dr. Stuart McGill– by Maria Mountain. I really like these real world looks into what professionals take home from a seminar. Those who read my blog have read my praise for Dr. McGill before.
Again, I am really looking forward to continuing to improve HockeySC.com in 2011. If there is anything that you think of or that we can do for you, please let us know. Thanks!
