Kevin Neeld — Hockey Training, Sports Performance, & Sports Science

Another Great Core Exercise

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been trying to post more videos recently. I love videos. If pictures are worth a thousand words, videos are worth one hundred BILLION words. I’ve read entire articles with detailed exercise descriptions that made no sense to me. Then I’ll watch the 30s of accompanying video and it all becomes clear.

If you’re like me and would rather watch a movie then read the book, you’ll love It’s a membership site where some of the most respected experts in the industry post exercises, exercise progressions, and teaching descriptions. It’s a great investment.

This is another exercise training core control in an anti-rotation pattern while also strengthening your back. You should be squeezing your butt hard on your back leg. Notice that you’re co-contracting your butt and opposite side latissimus dorsi (read: lat), just as you would in sprinting or skating.
