I hope everyone had a fantastic week.  I also hope you have a great weekend and hopefully get a chance to check out some of the NHL all-star game and festivities.  The all-star break is a great opportunity for me to spend some quality time with my family, shut it down for a few days, and re-charge for the rest of the season.

At HockeySC.com, we have had 3 great contributions since my last update.

First up is Single Leg Olympic Lifting by Darryl Nelson.  In this video, Darryl shows one of his hockey players performing the 1-leg/1-arm DB Push Jerk, and a 1-leg/1-arm DB Snatch.  These are pretty impressive videos.  I don’t know where I stand on these lift variations.  I truly can see the benefits of these in developing the neuromuscular system.  However, I am not sure how much load can be used in the long run, especially with great form.   I would have to try them out and experiment on my own.

Next up is a great piece, Integrating the Frontal Plane in Hockey Training, by David Lasnier.  This is a great article by David that thoroughly explains the need for training in the frontal plane in hockey training.  Since hockey is a multi-directional sport, training needs to take place in all 3 planes of motion.  We are so accustomed to training in the sagittal plane.   David points out how important the frontal plane is and gives us some good progressions.

Last is a video submitted by Anthony Donskov, Managing Stress.  I really like Anthony’s energy and enthusiasm for training.  This video won’t disappoint.

That’s it for the week folks.  I hope you enjoy your weekend, and thanks for reading.
