We had another good week at HockeySC.com
First up we had the second episode of the Hockey Strength Podcast. In episode 2, Anthony speaks with Darryl Nelson of the U.S. National development program team. This is a great interview as it gives some insights into what Darryl does on a daily basis. Darryl also discusses some of his recent articles that he has posted. You can listen to this at Hockey Strength Podcast.
Next up is Kevin Neeld’s 2-Day In-Season Training Program Phase 4. This is a good 2 day program that is very detailed in what Kevin’s athletes are doing in the weight room. With the accumulation of fatigue due to the amount of games and practices, Kevin backs off on volume a little bit, but still gets some quality strength work in.
Up next is another contribution from Kevin, Youth Hockey Training Program Phase 2. In this group of videos, Kevin highlights some of the exercises that he is using. There are some good speed and change of direction exercises in this group of videos.
Last up is Mike Potenza’s Establishing a Foundation: Leg Strength for Young Goaltenders. This is a good article which gives an excellent progression for a goaltender (or anyone else) to establish the proper foundation of squatting and then progressing to other single leg variations. This is a really good piece.
On the forum, we have some good discussions going on such as low back pain in females and conditioning tools. Make sure you check out the forum when you log on.
