I hope everyone had a merry Christmas. My family and I had a great few days of just hanging out together.
Recently at HockeySC.com, we had some good content additions to the site. On the forum, we also have some good discussions ongoing about CNS in-season training and team heart rate monitoring. Don’t forget to check out the forum when you log on.
As far as new content goes, here is what has been posted since my last update:
Youth Hockey Training Blueprint Part 3 by Kevin Neeld. In this article, Kevin looks at the thought process behind designing the workouts. I really like how he explains his template and how you can substitute exercises if you don’t have a piece of equipment for another exercise. You must design workouts that make sense in your facility.
AC Joint Injuries in Hockey by Anthony Donskov. This is another good piece submitted by Anthony. AC joint injuries are common in hockey and can be very painful. Anthony brings this common injury to our attention and explains how we can work around a separation and also how we can prevent them from happening.
Off-Season Phase 4 Strength Training by myself. Here is an example of what I have done in the past during phase 4. You can print the 4 phases and have a good 12-weeek off-season program. A reminder that these are just what I have done in the weight room. They don’t include our speed, plyo’s, and conditioning.
TRX Core Exercises video by Mike Potenza. Mike provides us with some core progressions from a frontal plane and anti-rotation perspective. There are some good movements in this video.
I hope everyone has a safe and happy new year’s eve!
