Early Spring Workout, Youth Training Phase 1, and Push/Pull Ratio for Contact Sport Athletes
I hope you had a great week.
We had a good week here at HockeySC.com. We had some excellent contributions from our coaches.
First up is Darryl Nelson’s Early Spring Off Season Workout. This is a good 4-day strength program. Like Darryl’s other programs, he really focuses on the basics.
Next ups is Mike Potenza’s Youth Training Program- Strength Phase 1. This is actually a 2-day program with accompanying videos. In the videos, Mike takes you through all of the exercises in the program. I really like this about this piece. What I also like is that these exercises are pretty easy for a youth player to learn as many of them feature body weight as resistance.
Last is Anthony Donskov’s Push/Pull Ratio for Contact Athletes. I really like this article and found it to be very informative. In fact, I agree with him in that contact athletes should probably do more horizontal rowing. Anthony does a great job explaining why this may be necessary in the prevention of shoulder injuries.
Also, on the forum, we have some discussions on hockey skill warm ups and planning for the playoffs. Check out the forum when you log on.
Also, a quick reminder that we will be raising our monthly price in 23 days. If you aren’t a member yet, you can still lock in the $1 for 7 days, $9.95 each month plan.
Have a great weekend and happy St. Patrick’s day! It’s definitely one of the best holidays of the year.
