Vertimax Exercises, Post-Holiday Program, and Kettlebells in Pro Hockey
I hope everyone has had a great week!
Recently at HockeySC.com, we have had some great content additions.
First up is Kevin Neeld’s Vertimax Exercises For Hockey Players. This is a good video from Kevin. I also like to use the Vertimax in the off-season for some of my older athletes who may get some back issues from some of of our Olympic lift variations. What I really like about the vertimax is the eccentric loading when the athlete lands on the platform after jumping. The Vertimax, along with kettlebell swings have given me more explosive exercise choices.
Next is Darryl’s Return From Holiday Break program. Darryl doesn’t disappoint with this program. Like I have said about Darryl’s programs in the past, they are simple. Yet, they are very effective. I also like the incorporation of barefoot training during the workouts. Reading Darryl’s program helps enforce to me that simple is better. Through my RKC experience and reading of Easy Strength, I am reminded that training can be simple.
Next is my own Using Kettlebells in Professional Hockey. Check it out if you haven’t already.
I hope everyone has a great weekend. Thanks for your support.
Simple is better – Coach Boyle had a great post over at his blog and the basic of it was ‘there is a reason there is a box’. In other words, so many people spend their time trying to find out of the box approaches to training, when like you said – if they excelled at the basics they would be having great success with their athletes.
I did read that. It ia a great article that I agree with.
We are doing more of the simple things.
