On Thursday I did an interview with Maria Mountain. Among other things, we talked about hockey training mistakes, my favorite exercise for hockey players, a couple great core exercises, and whether hockey players should use exercise bikes for conditioning or not.

…Ignore the end of the interview when I predict that the US Women’s Olympic Team will beat Canada…
In the interview I described one of my favorite core exercises: Rotational Cable Lift
This is an incredible exercise for improving rotational power, which has direct benefits for shooting power on the ice. Because of the complexity of the movement, it’s pretty difficult to explain.

P.S. In the last week I’ve added a 1-hour audio interview I did with Joe Heiler, an article on how I quickly help hockey players get rid of groin pain forever, and an article on neck training to prevent concussions from Jeff Cubos to Hockey Training Expert.
